Has been a while since I was shopping for DACs. LOL, just got Vega, need something more budgetary for secondary system
What is the current best buy in this range:
- Linx Hilo (has AD feature that I'll probably never use, looks very good otherwise)
- Yulong DA8 (seems like the best price/performance ratio?)
- Exasound E20 (a bit over the range new but used is within the budget, wall wart PSU, some proprietary audio drivers that only work through players supporting ASIO)
I would prefer something with smaller footprint. DSD is a plus but not an absolute must. And I'll probably pass on Mytek or anything similarly digibright, DAC2 or such.
