From my point of view this might be snake oil, but I don’t think anyone who hasn’t listened to it as a home demo can say its good/bad/poor or not worth the money.

I’m going to arrange for a home demo soon, will revert with comments. I’m going to demo Chord dave at same time.

Will be very interested to hear your thoughts. The Dave is a fantastic bit of kit, even if expensive. As I stated above, the M Scaler for me is 100% snake oil, always open to be proven wrong though!

Good.....and bad! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Chord said ( and demonstrated) that the Dave and M- Scaler have a different sound but the same ‘architecture’. The MS they said was designed to bring TT’s and Hugo’s up to DAVE standards. I didn’t think it did which brings me to the second point. After, in my case a 20 minute demo and in Attonine’s a much longer demo, what are we missing, given it was through headphones, that you expect to get with a home demo?

Hello Folks
A simple question : Can a tuned mini (the car) be a porsche or lamborgini ?
