I've just recently acquired a Rega Brio-R, a pair of Transparent Audio The Wave speaker cables, and a pair of Wharefdale Diamond 10.2 speakers. I'm using a Fiio D3 as a temporary DAC with some old Monster RCA interconnects & a Dynex Digital Optical Audio Cable hooked up to my late 2009 27" iMac to play a large library of lossless & HiRes tunes. What's a good DAC & RCA interconnects to partner up with the Rega & the Wharfedales?
I'm passing on the Rega Dac, because I don't like the USB option only doing 16 / 48 (the max is 96 on the iMac thru SPDIF) and I have a growing number of albums @ 24 / 192 I want to play. I plan on using a Transparent Audio USB or an Audioquest Carbon cable. These are the DACs so far I've seen (not heard) that interest me :
Schiit Bifrost & Gungnir (if I can scrounge up some extra scratch)
ifi iDac & iUSB
Emotiva XDA-2 & ProDAC (not out yet, in late Feb / early March)
Music Fidelity V-DAC II
HRT Music Streamer HD
Any suggestions, input, opinions, recommendations on the listed DACs or not would be greatly appreciated!
