I owned M920 for few months. Amazing DAC and I do think it's worth the money. This is once a lifetime investment and may as well be the last DAC you will ever need. Reason why I sold it (sometimes I regret that lol) was because the headphone amp was not what I hoped for. It made my back then TH900 sound little bass shy. But if you use this only as DAC and pair with a nice AMP you will be more then happy.
Currently rocking bottlehead crack with Beyer T1.
Yep, I bought it mainly as a DAC. From my experience, most combo products are designed to mainly be one thing, but has something else built-in for convenience, but that something is an add-on not up to the level of the product's primary use. To give another example, my Woo WA7 has an excellent headphone section and a good DAC, but that DAC is a built-in convenience that's not at the level of the amp. I don't mind the extras, as I'm not forced to use them, but they do come in handy occasionally (and the m920's amp is good enough that I sometimes switch to it from my Woo to hear the comparison).
Well said AudioMan612. That is something I learned recently myself you want to keep DAC and AMP separate because there is rarely a product that can ace both things. That is also how quickly expensive this hobby can get :D
I got my eyes set on possibly WA6 or even WA3 this winter. It would power my T1. Any experience with any of these tube amps?
The W6 and T1 are a match made in heaven, if u r from the UK or US you have good chances of finding a W6 for testing with your t1.
Thanks! Yeah, typically, the more expensive your audio setup, the more separate components you have. For example, you can go from a receiver, to a separate integrated amp and tuner, to a separate pre-amp, power-amp, and tuner, and then even beyond that with splitting up that power amp into mono blocks. In general, the more your separate things, the better performance you get, but the more money you pay.
