the rega dac looks cool, not many people have it though. i saw it at an audio store i went to a couple months back, almost bought one lol.
The Rega DAC is a total winner in the sense that it has an organic, lush, vinyl sounding coloration that is very difficult to find in other
manufactured DAC's - I've sat there with an Audio-gd Reference 7.1 and thought - there is more separation, ease and even odd detail
on the big Audio-gd flagship and yet - it is missing that analogue, organic tone compared to the Rega.
There's even one dealer down here in Australia who famously says - 'Rega DAC, add a $1 to the RRP to make it $1999 - mate, still a bargain'
Has to be used though via SPDIF and Optical, that's a given.
