Best DAC under $100

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I got a tweak city audio gizmo amp hooked up to 2 av123 elt525 speaks, but sucks hooked up to my crappy sound card. Don't know much about audio, whats the best DAC I can get that will work with my amp for under $100. I want to connect it to the optical out on my motherboard

A used ZERO DAC, I suppose.

How would the Fii0 E7 compare?

The E7 only has USB for it's DAC. But why not just go USB? Otherwise x2 on the used Zero DAC.

One option you can look at is the Creative X-Fi HD USB. It has an optical in. ~90$

 

If you go the USB route, you could get the uDAC2.

I am just about to order the uDAC2 for 109$ new. Someone posted the deal on Head-Fi a few weeks back and it is still active. www.crutchfield.com and use the coupon code 3A825.

I am very happy with my emu-202 as a DAC. Perhaps the updated version- the emu-204 will be a good option?
