Default Anybody know about goldmund DAC Mimesis 20 series

From somebody said, the goldmund dac 20 series is the best sound DAC with 36+ transport. But from the network, we can't find any picture of inside the machine or other information about the circuit. It's maybe a discret DAC and use NOS mode because we can see this web:

Have somebody interested in it?

I love how their sales pitch is centered around barking at "OS".

Default Not discrete? Also OS?

My English is not good and can you explain it clearly?

But I am very confused with
"Performance of the DAC is independent of the chipset used! "
If use bad D/A chip, it can achieve the same performance?
And the "OS" in this page just means ASRC or including digital filter?

yes I think its some "cheap" DA, S&H against jitter and glitch ( S&H or "time reconstruction" as they put it ) . No ASRC.

Wonder how they get that phase response, maybe digital signal is preprocessed before that nice analog filter ? (but OS is still bad thats a sure thing ).

Do you mean that they use Digital process chip to compensate the analog filter's phase error?

I agree with you that digital filter is also bad. And if only use digital filter the analog phase error also exist.

And If use digital phase compensate, which may have lower effect than digital filter while the signal has no phase error.
