if you can afford it I would suggest get the PCM1704UK DAC as the chip is no longer in production iirc and Audio-Gd might be the last one with it on stock .
Hum ? where did you read that PCM1704 are no longer in production ?
http://www.ti.com/product/pcm1704 according to this , production is not yet finished , but could be terminated any time soon .
It will be when labelised like that : http://www.ti.com/product/pcm63
I know that a time Audio GD claimed that PCM1704UK was over peraphs their chinese distributor was told from ti that PCM1704 was over , but peraphs with huge demand , TI extended PCM1704 life time for a bit . " TI want to discontinued PCM1704 but there are still a lot hi-end fans love the real sound of the PCM1704UK." (From Audio GD , means that PCM1704UK still avaliable but no one knows when it will be definitively over)
Any way i am saving to get one of this DAC with PCM1704UK (Ref 5.2 in mind) . But if i miss it , i could pass without it , peraphs waiting for some NFB-7.1 that appear time to time
