There was a DAC about four years ago (I forget which), but it was a game-changer for a couple of months after which it become an also-ran.

I think that for Meridian (and Bob in particular), what they did was a labour of love. What we got was the real deal, with no annual model 'upgrades' and associated bullshit. Thank you, Bob :-)

My observation is that recent progress has been in improving power supplies, cheaper better oscillators, power regulation and cleaning up Ethernet signals. All these improve existing DACs no end. Plus software, HQPlayer etc, lots going on...
