Exciting things are happening in the world of music streaming. After too many years of only MP3 quality music files, audiophiles will soon be getting CD-quality files from Spotify and (most probably) Apple Music as well.
Even today, many audiophiles still prefer the sound quality of R2R DACs compared with Delta-Sigma types. They claim that R2R DACs sound smoother and more like analogue. Audio-GD from China makes some R2R DACs which have received quite good reviews. All Audio-GD products are designed and developed under the guidance of He Qinghua, the 'First Prize Winner' of the National Semiconductor (USA) Audio Design Contest.
