I'm looking for a dac for my HiFi system for 2 channel audio. I would like a minimum of a 24bit/96khz capability, but would prefer 24/192. My budget is $1000, because I want to buy something that will last me a long time (I don't like buying a product that I will feel like upgrading in a couple years).
I was looking at sevral dacs, including:
Benchmark DAC1 ($999)
Peachtree Audio iDac ($999)
PS Audio - Digital Link III DAC ($499 from $1000)
Centrance - DACmini CX (799)
Leaning towards one of the first 2. No idea where to go from here.
For those who say spending so much on a DAC isn't worth it with the AV receiver I currently have, I will be buying dedicated components as time passes, the DAC is just high on my list at the moment.
I could pickup 2 dacs (if they could be returned) to ab but that's the limit.
