i briefly had the v90, at the same time i had the peachtree dacIT, and a bifrost, i quickly sent the v90 back, it sounded dry, light weight to me.
i even preferred the hrt musicstreamer II, and II+ to the v90, the v90 just wasn't my cup of tea
if i was looking for a dac in the $300US bracket, the hrt products are killer, the dragonfly, and i almost kept the dacIT over the bifrost
So you recommend the Schiit Bifrost? :) I guess I will give it a try! :D
