I read some reviews and its sound quality is compared to the audiophilleo...
Did I say that? No.
I have also heard good things about the Concero. Whether one thinks it sounds better or worse is entirely subjective. All of these interfaces are competitive with each other, it's just a matter a of taste. Sorry that you misunderstood me.
If I remember correctly, there is a 6moons review where Srajan compares the sound all three. He prefers the Audiophilleo over the Stello U3. I definitely disagree.
Have you heard the Stello U3 yourself? Or did you just assume it must sound "worst" b/c of the lower price?
Anyways, what it sounded like you were asking for was a cheaper alternative than the Concero. The U3 is cheaper and certainly gets my approval. I make no guarantee that you would like it better, but I would also be surprised if you did not find it acceptable. Like I said, all of these converters are competitive. The differences can be subtle, but they are definitely there.
