Sabre 9018 Chip DAC Recommendations?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Dear All,

 

I am wondering if you guys have any DAC recommendations that make use of the Sabre 9018 chip. I am hoping that the DAC will be $400 or less on the secondary market! If there are some really good recommendations above that, feel free to mention them too, but I'm really looking to save on a DAC!

 

I am currently running Schiit Mjolnir > Audez'e LCD-2.2 setup, just so you have some context!

 

Thanks,

Pepper

If you already have a Mjolnir, you should make use of a balanced dac so that you have a fully balanced setup. If you can spare a bit more money, then the audio-gd NFB-1P would be a good choice for a sabre 9018 balanced dac. The NFB-1P should be a little better sounding since it is stand-alone compared to my NFB-10ES2.

Is this the cheapest audio-gd model that has the 9018? $299 + shipping
