Default Any body listen to a DDDAC 1543 mk 2 DAC

I've had Doede Duama's dddac 1543 with an 8 chip tower for a couple of years now. It is a wonderful DAC. This DAC has a SPDIF input.

I'm thinking of going to a dddac1543 mark 2 which would add a second tower and the USB input to the circuit.

Can anybody compare how the USB DAC compares to the SPDIF DAC?

From a sound point of view, is this a worthwhile thing to do?


I've looked through a lot of threads and don't see any direct comparisons...

Of course I did, and it is described on my website

however, I might be seen as biased

What I get as response from DIY, is that the USB delivers clearly more micro detail, texture and transparant sound stage
Happy listening and building
