Thanks, yes, it's always good to get feedback from others who have walked the path, particularly with some time elapsed.

I think I'll do it but still working out whether to upgrade existing or whether to buy the anniversary model. Can't go wrong either way of course.

Great thread... I have a DAC 2 and considering doing the upgrade to the DAC-2v2SE. Also thinking of perhaps buying a trade in DAC-2v2SE instead of doing the upgrade. The price difference is only about $250 or so and I would end up with an extra Day that I could sell or use in another system. Is the upgrade from the DAC2 to the DAC-2v2SE that dramatic?

Look for my previous and others posts to this topic. The upgrade is well worth the cost IMHO.

It took me awhile to like the sound of my 10th anniversary DAC2, but I have to say it sounds great. I don't know if it's "break in" or whatever, but it did take some time to warm up to it. To me the original DAC2 and the Mc D100 sounded very similar, but the 10th is in a different league so I wouldn't hesitate to upgrade from the regular DAC2 to the 2v2SE.

QQ about the upgrade: Using the original W4S Dac-2, I notice that the display does not update if Qobuz songs change from 44.1kHz/16-bit to 24-bit – 96.00 kHz. Is this fixed in the upgrades?

Hello Sesttlesounders,

This is very odd behavior, are you sure the player is changing the sample rate. What device is the source - a computer? In the audio setup, you should be able to change sample rates to test the DAC but the rate displayed is the rate calculated based on what the DAC is being sent. I'm sure after the upgrade the dac will be working properly but it is likely a setting issue within your OS causing the behavior.

Talk to you soon and welcome to the thread!

Thanks w4s. The source is an ultrarendu attached via USB if that helps?

I would Check with JR to see what is happening. He is very familiar with our DACs and can likely help with this.
