Aune X1 - limited to 16/48 through USB but has preamp out
Fubar IV - same as above
Topping D2 - same as above may not have as good of DACs
Zero - no analog line in and have heard the build quality has gone down hill.
I would like to throw the schist magni/modi in there as I might be able to do without the optical if the USB in is that good but there is only one output on the modi, can I split this to go to my external amp as well as the magni?
What other external equipment can accomplish my tasks yielding excellent DAC results while staying in my price range.
