Live Stream – Alpha tests ten d/a converters ‘live’!

Aqua La Voce S3 DAC

It’s that time again! Alpha Audio will perform a live multi-test. This time we are testing ten d/a converters in the price range 1750 – 2500 euro. We have a more expensive one… but that’s what makes the test interesting. This live stream multitest we will do on Saturday, February 15. We hope to start the test around 10:00 CET (Amsterdam, Netherlands time). The test will end around 16:00 CET. 

The regular readers and viewers of Alpha Audio know that this is not the first live stream. As a pilot we did a multitest bookshell speakers. Then we did a live test of audio switches with ten readers of Alpha Audio. That was definitely worth repeating, so stay tuned for a sequel!

This time we test ten d/a converters (if all goes well). We’ve got quite a few at the office now. The models that are new from the box are already warming up. So, by the time the test starts, they must have been burned in.

The models

DACs you can expect in this test:

  • Moon 230 HAD (with headphone amp)
  • Moon 280D (with built-in streamer)
  • Atoll DAC200
  • Weiss DAC2 (with streaming module)
  • Mytek Brooklyn Bridge (with streamer)
  • DAC3 Benchmark
  • Metrum Acoustics Onyx
  • Chord Hugo2 (with headphone amp)
  • Musical Fidelity M6 SDAC
  • Kinky Studio Vision DAC1

Still on the way is a dac/headphone amp from Focal.

Tune in on 15-02-2020!

We hope to see you in the reactions of the Live Dac Test of the Alpha Audio Youtube channel!
