Зачем было делать эти два нелепые джека вместо одного 4-pin XLR - непонятно, места занимает столько же.
Наткнулся на отзыв на хедфае, мол Codex играет на уровне Chord Dave)
indeed, austin. however he might have a thing there. if i preferred vinyl and tubes i might prefer yiggy. even though it is not nearly as competent a dac imo. i feel digital should be digital. not analog by any means. of course there is good digital and bad digital. right now i have dave in place up here still. i swear the codex is just as good. sure, they sound different so if you prefer chord than so be it. signature aside i just feel the codex is at least as good if not better. come on folks, dave is a 15 grannd dac! either chord really messed up or codex is all that. this is not the first time i did this either. the only dac in my home that slaughters the codex is the msb select loaded with dual bases. i think that says an awful lot. i am not kidding around or trying to be a jerk. this is solely my opinion. yes, the msb kills it. but almost everything else including the vivaldi is not too far off. true, i am comparing the codex to six figure dacs. to me it is pretty darn amazing. right now my advice is if you like digital get the codex. provide real good usb power and high end balanced cables. my opinion is you can't beat this until you get into some serious cash. that is, if you like the sound. even the qx-5 twenty when the codex is set up right is not much better as a dac. the qx-5 twenty offers much more though.
