Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

So now you know more than Rob Watts?

Not bloody likely. Rather arrogant approach to take.

I'll trust Rob Watts/Ted Smith over you and ASR any day of the week. They have put in the blood, sweat, and tears to make some excellent gear. Yes, its very obvious to hear the difference between the Chord DAC and a off the shelf DAC chip. There is tons of digital ink spilled over on Head-Fi.org about this. Headphone listening is much more revealing of DAC performance over standard loudspeaker playback.

Taking a small subset of incomplete measurements and declaring absolute results is not scientific. The ASR review is a bit misleading, which is why I posted the response to it.

Lies, damn lies, and statistics. We are done here.
