New One HD or used 8 Qx DAC

Postby ozzyvo6 » Tue Sep 17, 2019 6:29 pm

Hi everyone,
I have the opportunity to buy these items. Same price around £800.

What do think/suggest?

The 8 qx dac is several years old and an AB amp, right?
The One HD is modern and well equipped but class D

I’ll connect my Computer to the amp . Got shelf size high end speaker to work with the amp.
Actually I’m a fan of the old fashioned sound. Got a XP DAC sig, running with two x300 Sig. in my living room and very much enjoying it...

Thanx
Ozzy

Is the one hd asynchronous USB?
if it is, and it’s a usb connection from computer that might tip you
one HD will use less lecy
but you can’t go wrong with 8qx
