    do you need a monitor controller? are you tired of smeared R2R, rolled off NOS and other lo-fi DACs? do you ever wish you could tell the relative height of the drummer between two recordings using nothing more than your ears and 16/44.1 source files?

    i have the solution for you. they say a picture is worth 1000 words so i'll let these diagrams do the talking. actual pictures of the unit available on request but a real man shouldn't need them. $650 net to me

    Better than Yggdrasil? That is quite a claim and I cannot wait to audition it from local pro audio shop. GLWS..

    More like an estranged cousin than a friend. I am giggling hard at this accusation.

    The charts are for comedic value mostly. You don't have to defend Schiit's honor at every twist and turn, I think Yggdrasil sales will survive.

    Your AGD Singularity 19 needs a new DAC.

    Very tasteful of SBAF mod crew to leave @Hands baseless comment up on my thread while moving my response to him into a totally unrelated one. I have always tried to make my FS threads on this forum humorous as if I'm going to clutter up the sidebar with stuff I'm selling I might as well give a laugh to anyone who bothers to look. It's a shame you instantly felt the need to post something snide and unnecessary. The Dangerous Source is a modestly priced source controller that stands on the merits of its own performance and has been around for years and years. It does not require hype. I have not ever colluded with anyone to hype audio gear for personal profit. If I was interested in making a buck I would've listed this on eBay for $100 more.

    @GoodEnoughGear I bought this to try it out for fun, that's pretty much it. All memes aside, I personally favor the sound of discrete ladder converters and still have a Yggdrasil in my rack, though I am looking for the next step up. Considering the Denafrips Terminator and Rockna Wavedream.

    Discrete ladder DACs belong in the bargain bin (less than a few hundred bucks) or in the trash. I don't care what sort of FPGA correction wizardry someone implemented or whatever architectures get used, because resistor tolerances are still piss poor relative to laser trimmed ICs.

    What?

    A new thread is created for a product and gets an incredibly positive review out of the blue, the next day someone believed to be associated with that person has one up for sale. It looked questionable to some, I have no opinion on whether there is a connection, but that’s the perception at issue.

    What you have linked to is someone themselves making an off hand offer of sale to someone who already harbours a strong interest, for their 3rd favourite item out of 10 in a round up, with which they also offer a freebie. Which to me comes across as someone wanting to easily be rid of something because they’re keeping one of the other prefered contenders.

    Your response was moved back just now. Next time you can ask nicely instead of jumping to conclusions. This forum is actually moderated, but sometimes mistakes are going to be made, simply because of the amount of noise and nonsense posts to move around. Not everyone on the Kryptonian Council agrees with what @Hands did (for instance, I can be a dick, but I would never pee on someone's FS thread); but then again perhaps @Hands was just playfully unseriously rubbing you. I don't know, it's hard sometimes to get tone across the Internet. If you want to playfully dish it, you gotta take it too.

    P.S. Everyone: please let this FS thread proceed without any additional unnecessary comments. Mods already had to move a portion of the thread elsewhere. Please don't make them have to do it again.

    bump, this is still for sale.

    Here are some choice quotes taken from the audio press and secret societies about this unit:
    "Veiled and also a bit flat"
    "It's simply not competitive. Trust me..."
    "The headstage depth totally sucks on the Source"

    Buy with confidence!

    It also got the "not shit" Changstar seal of approval. XMOS USB is the preferred connection, so that should be a plus for most people.

    You might get more on reverb.com even though they take a cut.
