Purrin - perhaps it would be enlightening if you would list some other DACs that you've heard that you did enjoy. Maybe with a wide range of prices? Sometimes that might give us a better picture of your sonic preferences. No rush, maybe wait until you've finished all your listening.
- Berkeley Alpha DAC ($5000)
- Buffalo DAC (DIY or lego-your-own or $1200 commissioned, $750 used)
- AMB y2 (DIY or $250 used)
- DCX2496 modded with passive outs with the output of all 3 chips paralleled ($250 + DIY)
- Rega Planet (long long ago)
