DAC replacement for Xonar STX

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

I just switch from a Windows platform to Mac. My windows setup is as follows:

 

PC --> Xonar Essence STX --> Little Dot MKIII tube amp --> DT880 headphone  250ohm.

 

I need to replacement the Xonar with a DAC for my Mac platform. Any recommendations? I want the DAC quality to be equivalent of the Xonar and my budget is around $300.

 

Thanks

I replaced my STX with an ODAC. I thought the ODAC to be just a little better, but that could be listener bias. Certainly is equivalent. Given that the Schiit Modi has been compared favorably with the ODAC (I have not heard it), I would suspect it to be as good as the STX as well.

Both of these are well under your budget smily_headphones1.gif
