have anyone compare this DAC with Metrum Octave and Centrance DAC Mini CX?
I'm looking for a DAC and come accross this thread, and from what I read, D18 is very promising.
and I would love to know how is it compare to both DAC i mentioned.
my source will be laptop. so, if i buy D18, that's mean i have to buy another USD to SPDIF converter (such as JKSPDIF MK3 or stello u3 or Audiophello2), thats another USD500 just for the converter.
but looking at Metrum Octave or Centrance DAC Mini CX, they have USB input.
what is your opinion? thanks
