I feel the same way, there are elements of both that I like at different times. They are clearly different but both are great convertors, it really is a matter of taste. Hopefully a few others get the opportunity to have a listen and post their thoughts. I will post which convertor is which later in the week.
The interesting thing is that I have been shooting out these convertors on each master everyday for about a month, but I always make my decision before inserting any eqs or compressors into the analog chain, so ultimately my choice affects all of the processing decisions I make, this is the reason I posted a mix and not a master. With that said I find I am using both about the same amount depending on the track.
Thanks for your input.
