Chord Dave - Reference DAC, Preamp & Headphone Amplifier
The Chord Dave is a true reference level DAC that has the ability to shine a light on details and aspects of your music you may have never knew existed! The first experience I had with a Chord Dave I was shocked at the detail, control & texture within the bass region I was hearing. That was within the first 20 seconds of an Oscar Peterson track! The next few hours were like a total new re-discovery of all different types of music within my collection.
The Chord Dave is a unit that is going to reveal everything, the beautiful, good, bad, and ugly depending on flaws or strengths of anything from the quality of the music or source through to even the positioning of your speakers!
This is truly a nothing but the truth experience that proves to be highly rewarding.
Whether you are utilizing it in a Hi-Fi or Head-Fi system get ready to hear unheard details, textures, and aspects of all your music!
Keep in mind that everything you love about the Dave's sound is improved by the M-Scaler. You will get a far grander soundstage, better detail, and an even more realistic tone which also creates a more effortless and enjoyable listen.
