I've been browsing this forum for a few days now. I'm looking for the best possible DAC for a budget in the range of 150$-300$, and there seems to be so many possible alternatives that I'm completely lost.
One year ago I wanted to enter into the world of audiophiles. My wife has offered me the Ultrasone HFI-580 (upgraded from the Grado 80i) )which has blown my ears multiple times. I have to have a DAC/amp now.
Most of the reviews describe the nuForce uDac-2 as a great device. Is this the one you would recommend? And would it be worth it to try to spend more on the DAC and buy something around the 500$ mark?
Thanks so much for your help.
