Anybody who has experience of the Meitner MA-1 dac? I have found a demo unit for about half retail price.

Been listening quite alot to it and it does some very nice things. But a friend of mine had some concerns with a little to bright sound in the treble, saying transients sounded a little forward and sharp. I know the tweeter has got a little rising response around 10kHz so maybe that is what he heard. Maybe this tweeter is a little bright and sharp? Since I am older than him I do not think it is very much of a problem but I could hear what he meant.

If its not subjectively sharp with other flat response source equipment and amplification then its not the culprit. A good thing with DIY is you can intervene. So if you like some gear for everything else you may try to tone down the mid-hf in the speaker for instance. I.e. higher value mid-woofer coil, or higher value tweeter attenuation resistance or both. 8-10kHz is sibilance region mostly by the way.

Good point, I was not thinking of that. If I get your point the transients is lower in frequency than say 8kHz so that range should not be a "problem", it is lower in frequency.
To be honest I am not very good at judging how transients "should sound". Maybe someone can explain that to me, what is your explanation, Salas?

Transients are fast power changes. Depending on where they concentrate for frequency band in a program we call them LF, MF, HF transients for instance. In what region your impressions mainly concentrate? Is it repeatable on headphones? That would point away from the speakers or not.

Thanks, I will investigate it tonight with some listening but the guy who "complained" said it was in the treble region, so (maybe high MF) to HF according to him. I post my findings when ready.

You can use your spectrum analyzer & mic gear to see the actual bands for the moments he picks as sharp.

That can be done but now he is not "available" for the moment, lol. But I will have a listening session with another hifi friend tonight and ask him what he thinks.
I am a little concerned because I am not sure what is the cause of it and that makes me a little careful about buying the DAC since it might be expensive to make it sound as "it should". Or it is the dac itself sounding like that.
Or maybe it needs better speakers to do that and then it can be a little waste of money with a new dac since I should get new speakers too (the price difference between speakers and dac is quite large) to get the full potential and so on, expensive. Phew, not easy .
