Well i can stretch the budget a bit, i'm basicaly looking for something with a good bang/buck ratio.
I found the audioengine D1 http://audioengineusa.com/Store/D1-24-Bit-DAC
I also thought about the ODAC/O2 combo and just getting a TOS to RCA convertor(no experience with this, is the quality terrible?). this is a above budget, but perhaps a used one or the DIY version would solve that.
any input would be greatly appreciated.
