So I have the Audiolab M-DAC and it's just an amazing piece of equipment but for some reason I am feeling like I just have to get a better DAC. Now I have searched the forums a bit and shortlisted a few DACs that also have a built in hp amp. These are:
OK so that Weiss one is just a pipe dream and waaaaay out of my budget but you can see what I am aiming for. Info on the base model Zodiac is very scarce in this forum and from what I can gather the M-DAC is a total giant killer so my question is, are these DACs going to be much better than it or is the increase going to be fairly marginal? What kind of money are we talking about if I do want to have a huge difference over my M-DAC? Of course other recommendations are welcome and thanks to anybody willing to help me out.
