Wonderwoman - solid paced, well directed and yes, Gal Gadot IS WonderWoman. Best of all is a well mixed audio track. Jun 21, 2017 at 9:14 AM

        Nothing wrong if you like them a bit older and more "experienced"

      RME 9632 found and on its way. Hopefully worth the price compared to Juli@ as transport&dac vs ModiMB.

        I am just curious about these cards. They are still selling them and they are pretty close to 13 years old. Must be doing something right...

        When I got my card, which was maybe 2002-ish, it was already obsolete and being sold at about half price... and a hundred uk pounds was *still* a huge amount of money to spend on a sound card! But not as much as Lynx, which was probably nearer a thousand of those pounds even then.

        Analogue i/o and optical digital i/o. With a tape-switching box, a couple of tape decks and a mini-disk it all combined with my PC as a fairly complex record-anything to anything-else setup.

        And first off was the experience... "Huh? This sounds better than my Cyrus CD player!"

        Lowest price new seems to be at Thomann (€377). Used on ebay is between €220-260

        Probably go secondhand for this. On the other hand could also buy it new an return to Thomann if it's not really an improvement on the Juli@. Saw some one here bought one for 90€ not to long ago.

        Whoa, 90€ was a really good price! Well, yeah what you could do is get it from Thomann to try it out and then possibly return it and wait for a good used deal, depending on how much you think its worth (or maybe you find an awesome deal) :)

      What do people transcode lossy too these days? MP3, OGG, AAC?

        Compared to MP3, It is significantly better at the same bitrate or equal at lower bitrates. It is MP4, built to improve on MP3 in many many regards.
        Don't take my word for it, look at some results:
        http://listening-test.coresv.net/results.htm
        Note that MP3 has an extra ~30kbps to work with and still loses.

      The Esi Juli@ has to be my best audio purchases this year by far. Bought too feed the Modi, but the DAC section is really good too. SUBBASS!

        But oh so hard to get good analogue in/out internal sound cards now. DAC makers and their buyers have destroyed the market.
        I'd still be using my old (and first good) RME card, but it makes funny noises now. Like me!

      Does the Modi "roll-off" in the subbass? Interesting...

        It's certainly less muscular in the bass than some of the bigger Moffat DACs. Some of that might just be down to power supply design, mind.

        The true answer may be a bit of everything - effective resolution, power design, output stage and other stuff. It's still a great-sounding DAC for the money, if you feed it properly, though. Clean, low-jitter non-mobo SPDIF and clean power, then into an amp that itself has clean power gets you a long way.
