Hi Dynaudio enthusiasts,


I ordered the DBM50's on Black Friday for $420/each (they're still at that price on Amazon) and just received them today:


They sound glorious through my setup!  So revealing:


MacBook Pro > Emagic 26 > unbalanced rcas > DBM50s


I've been researching DACs for a while and the Audiolab MDAC is the leading contender at the moment.  I like that the MDAC can also conveniently drive my Grado MS-2 (impedance: 32 Ohms).  & it's filter options and connectivity flexibility are appealing.


Other DACs i've considered are:



  • Wadia 121 
  • W4S DAC-1 
  • Schiit Gungnir
  • Rega
  • Benchmark DAC1 & 2
  • Audio GD
  • Yulong


I'm wondering if Dynaudio enthusiasts have any opinions to share about DACs in the $1000 range that have worked well with your Dyandio monitors?  I will be looking for the balanced XLR connection and headphone out is preferable.


Many thanks in advance for your help.
