I've been looking into an upgrade to the Channel Islands VDA-2 that has served me well for some years now. One of the features of this DAC that I rely on is the fact that it has dual unbalanced analog outputs. I've been looking for an upgrade in the 1K to 1.5K range but after combing through a dozen DAC reviews everything seems to feature a single unbalanced RCA and single balanced XLR output. I can't believe there aren't users out there with two unbalanced amps they are wanting to drive from the same DAC. I'd prefer not to employ yet another box to solve the issue such as a switch.
Any thoughts or suggestions on a DAC I may have overlooked would be appreciated.
