    This is why we say let your ears decide. The NODE 2 and 2i Burr Brown is a quality DAC and many do feel it punches above its weight in performance. If you are satisfied, then trade the DAC in for a couple of PULSE MINIs and learn how cool multitoom can be.

    Thank you Tony for your speedy reply.

    I have not bought the DAC yet (thank goodness), I only demoed it. And as I said, I could not hear any difference in sound quality so will not be buying it.

     

    Thanks again for your kind help.

    Djmeerloo,

    I actually bought the chord Qutest DAC to use in between my vault 2i and amp, and heard a significant difference. The issue I had initially was with how I had connected the chord dac as I also didn't hear any difference at first. I was using the usb b input on my dac to usb (but that doesn't work with the vault 2i), so I had to switch it to an optical analog and then heard the difference. The chord is an expensive dac, but I've found it very worthwhile. And the Qutest might be on sale now since it's no longer in production. However, the bluesound DAC is very capable.
