I'm in desperate need of a balanced DAC to pair with my wa22 amplifier.
My set up will be Essence STX -> DAC -> wa22 -> PS1000's. I am extremely close to purchasing the m1 dac, but I can't help to notice some great deals on the DL III that put it in the same $700 price range. Unfortunately, I have had no luck finding comparisons.
I am tempted to buy both off crutchfield, then return the least favorite. However, I was hoping for advise before I go through all that.
Another strong contender is the audio-gd NFB-1, but that is a bit more expensive.
