Hello my head-fi'ers, I have a limited knowledge when it comes to dedicated DACs, so please excuse my random noobness when I said something dumb .
First of all, I know this forum is about head cans, and I'm running bookshelf speakers instead. But this is like the only forum where I can find reviews on the DACs that I have interests with, so I thought I should give it a try
My current setup is PC -> MS-Pro -> Qinpu A6000 mini tube amp -> Ascend Sierra 1 with NRT upgrades. If anyone happens to have something similar to my setup, please shed me some lights!!
OK, so I'm looking to upgrade my MS-Pro, and have been lurking around a few threads here and there trying to find some comparisons between the MS-Pro and other non usb-powered DACs, but no luck so far.
After reading a few more threads, I've came across the Yulong D100 MKII, and the D18/U18 combo, both has excellent reviews and price/performance ratio. But does any one have any idea of how they are compared to the MS-Pro, and does it worth the upgrade? If yes, should I start off with the D100 MKII or go straight to the D18/U18 combo, and call it a day? What I'm thinking is that since I'll be using these devices for just pure DAC purpose, would my money be better spent if I go with the D18/U18 combo? (Since the D100 MKII is more like a hybrid of DAC and amp)
Any help would be appreciated, I'm also open for other suggestions other than the Yulongs.
