So I got into HiFi quite recently. I made the conscious decision not to buy a DAC right away because I wanted to start by feeling the world of HiFi out a bit and see if I wanted to invest more. As it turns out, I do want to invest more. What I currently have is a crack and a HD650, and I'm just amazed at how much noise my desktop makes. Hearing circuit cards working is fun at first but gets old, and you especially don't want it disturbing the music.
So I've been looking into DAC's. Been reading and reading but in the end as a total noob I don't feel I can make an informed decision before asking advice from people who have experience. Of course there have been threads asking pretty much this exact same thing, but not recently.
From what I gather there are 2 obvious choices: Bifrost being the more expensive option (pretty much on the limit of what I'm willing to spend, and NFB-3.33. Basically what I'm asking is am I missing some other great options within this budget, and if not: is the bifrost worth those extra 100-150$ or should I go with the NFB-3.33?
Feel free to also suggest basically anything else that could improve my setup!
