Has anyone compared dCS Bartok and DS Dr ?
Yesterday I had a demo of dCS Rossini with clock in a local dealer here at Berkeley, CA. It was a really great experience.
Though, without Clock, in playing DSD over ethernet using Roon I felt it was not that impressive but with Clock it was outstanding. The outputs from playing CDs and low quality Mp3 from a usb drive were very very good too with and without the Clock.
It has very similar analog type of sound as that of DS Sr. But the sound was much more rich and engaging.
However, the price point is close to 5 times of DS Sr (I won’t recommend Rossani without Clock). I own DS Sr for last 5+ years. And after hearing Rossini, I realize more that DS Sr is a steal at its price point.
However, I found that now there is also dCS Bartok which they have released just at the end of last year which is at a price point similar to DS Sr (the price is more than double the price of DS Sr, though).
Wondering if anyone had heard the dCS Bartok and has done any comparison.
