Correct. Measure the replacements and match all 4 as closely as possible. The flexibility to do this is one thing I really like about the Mercury circuit.

Cheers!

Im contemplating 9038 also instead of mine synchronous clocked 9018 with Paul Hynes local regulators going into mercury. But brightness and agresiveness scares me. Im wondering if burned in 9038 with tridentsr will be like mine 9018 just more resolving and dynamic??

I doubt any of us can answer your question. People actually listen differently so it is very hard to generalize what sounds different vs similar. ...add to that the age-related changes in high frequency sensitivity... OTOH, we do get accustomed to sound signatures of our rigs, and there are so many ways to tweak the sound.

Good luck!

My new Mercury has been running for 48+ hours now with my dual-mono Buffalo II. I had previously used both Legato and IVY for IV converter.

I tip my hat to Russ and Brian. The Mercury takes my DAC to a different level. The extension, resolution, tone/timber and soundstage all improved.

Because of the similar footprint and all, it was minimal work to substitute the IVY/Legato with the Mercury. I had some additional work due to my dual-Buffalo setup and had to improvise a bit to accommodate the shorter pin headers shipped with the Mercury.

Thanks for a wonderful product!

I have 4 resistors matched in pairs. Should each matched pair be used on one channel as opposed to the same positions in each l/r channel?

I would use closest matches within each channel. But hopefully the two matched pairs are also very close in values...

Enjoy!
