I need to stay around the $200 range or less for amp+dac. Looking for bang for the buck, not the best possible gear.
Any thoughts on the C&C BH with this perspective rig?
I have that current rig, I can confirm what you've been reading. it will set you back $200 roughly for the amp and player. I also recommend finding a decent 3.5mm to 3.5mm interconnect cable on eBay. The included cable in the C&C BH package is fine however upgrade it if you can. The C3 / C&C BH combo has become rather popular and for good reason. Plus they sit exactly on top of each other. It will look like this (without the cable)
Remembering C3 is purely a music player, there's no playlists, no album, artist, genre etc...It's very simple focused on sound quality. You basically select a folder then play the files within the folder. There's no custom EQ. It supprts a few basic repeat, shuffle options, some backlight and brightness settings and some preset EQ's. It's designed to be used flat for audiophiles.
I can vouch for the synergy though.Edited by H20Fidelity - 2/19/13 at 4:39am
