I recently purchased the Burson Soloist as an amp for my LCD-2. I love the sound that comes out of this. Very clean and handles the LCD-2 even on high volumes (I listen to music pretty loud). I used to just having my portable rig, rx mk3-b and CLAS, powering my LCD-2 and I am now looking to build my desktop rig. With the Soloist alone connected to my iPod, I find the LCD-2 very lovely but I know I can still benefit from adding a DAC to my system. So I am now in search of a good DAC to pair with the Soloist. Can I get your thoughts on what DACs you used with the Soloist, budget is < $1000. My listening preference is Rap, R&B, Acoustic and sometimes classical.
Thank you in advance.
