Yamamoto YDA-01 DAC ($2,450) Review on 6moons

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

6moons has reviewed another component from Japanese maker Yamamoto Sound Craft. This time it’s the YDA-01 DAC ($2,450). Reviewer Srajan Ebaen gave this DAC a Blue Moon Award for “Liquidity, Speed, Tension and No Tubes” in the D/A Converter category. He summed up his impression by way of an analogy:

“First Watt goes digital.” If Nelson Pass did a D/A converter for First Watt, this is what you’d expect. Those familiar with his F3 – F5 amps can transfer their sonics to the YDA-01 for a very close approximation.

Read the entire review, then check out 6moons’ recent review of the Yamamoto A-09S tube stereo power amplifier (JPY 680,000-780,000).
