Excellent value as a DAC!

UDA-1 13/03/2015 by JoshInGotham

I have tried various DACs at or near this price point, including a TEAC UD-301 (I believe this DAC uses the same converter chip that is found in the UDA-1), Onkyo P-3000R, and several Peachtree DACs (DAC-iT, iDecco, iDac, all based on the much vaunted ESS Sabre chip family). The UDA-1 is the only DAC I've found from this group that approaches, possibly surpasses, the lively and wonderfully organized musical presentation delivered by my trusty Sony XA5400ES SACD player. As a DAC, and connected to my Apple TV, I'm able to conveniently stream music from mobile devices and discover new music on Tidal, while enjoying the same fidelity of sound I have grown accustomed to on CD. Eva Cassidy from "Live at Blues Alley", her voice floats magically in "Tall Trees in Georgia". And you can hear the sheer power and elegance of Jacqueline Du Pre's playing in the second movement of the Elgar cello concerto in the latest EMI release. If I had to describe in a single word the signature Sony sound common to this DAC and the XA5400ES player, it would be "lively". My equipment includes a pair of Spendor SP2/3Rs and a Krell S-300i integrated amp. (Brief mention: I made an attempt to use the UDA-1 as an all-in-one and wired it up directly to my SP2/3Rs. I found the sound to be clean, though it lacked some authority and dimension.)
