    Performwnce assessment requires some degree of training. What most of us do is more akin to tasting. We buy what sounds pleasing.

    I think you've got a busted USB cable. :p

    Looks like you answered your own question! All current Chord DACs (excluding Mojo) accept 32/768.

    You need two cables. Not what I would call an optimal solution.

    It’s pretty optimal for people selling cables.

    Unless you specialise in making & selling BNC cables!;)

    ...or you just use the perfectly fine pair Chord supply with the Mscaler.

    I'd prefer to describe this in terms of light displaying both the properties of a wave and those of a particle, depending on how you look at it. :)

    Perhaps worth pointing out that a studio might use a master clock which the various digital devices are then fed and expected to synch to. Some of the kit I use allows this.

    Some may not have detected what I suspect was a tongue poking fairy hard into your cheek there. ;)

    Of course. How could the cables Chord provide with their £12,000 Dac possibly be fit for purpose. Tongue poking fairy indeed.

    I'm sure they'd be fine. If only they fitted on the BNC connections...

    PS never heard of Chord's £12,000 DAC. Bet it's fab! They don't supply BNCs with Dave.

    Dave + Mscaler = Dac = £12000 or does the Mscaler do other magic too?

    The BNC cables come with the Mscaler, which you can use with other, cheaper stuff. So you were wrong, just accept it & move on.

    Wrong about what Tony? The Mscaler is added to any Chord dac with dual BNC. Whichever two items this ends up being is still a single dac. Thus, if you add it to a Dave you have a £12000 dac. I agree it’s a bit cheap not to get any cables with the £8,499.00 Dave though.

    Football's a funny old game, isn't it?

    You did post that the cables came with their DAC, didn't you? Heavens, it's windy out...

    That may explain why they hang upside down with their heads encased in their wings.
