The Well Audio
Both R2R and DSD DAC sound very good, maybe the DSD DAC is more precise and detailed while the R2R DAC has better midrange.
Difficult choice, maybe I prefer the R2R DAC for simple acoustic music and the DSD DAC for complex music like orchestra.
Anyway both DAC sound a little better with tantalum resistors, although they already sound very good with standard thin film resistors.
With tantalum resistors the R2R DAC is more detailed, while the DSD DAC has more midrange fullness.
