Forssell MADC-2 or Mytek Stereo192 DSD DAC?

Has anyone AB the 2 side-by-side?

If so, I was wondering which you preferred and why.

Thanks

Yes I did. To my ears Forssell sounds more natural (especially at higher sample rates).

The Forssell sounds pretty much the same at all sample rates to me. Note the newer A version is a step up.

I do not know the Mytek, but the Forssell Dac is something special, highly recommended.

So for 2 channels ADC and DAC the Forssell MADA-2 I take it.

I wonder how it compares to the Mytek Stereo192 ADC and DSD DAC.

I heard that the Mytek Stereo192 DSD DAC is faster and more spacious than the Forssell but that was 1 persons opinion, who also works for Mytek so

Its very hard to imagine that those 2 adjectives are accurate. I think you'd have to hear them side by side yourself...

That WOULD be the acid test for sure!

I wonder if anyone has an AB files to compare with?
