Hi i will soon have a system chain of LCD-3, Soloist, and a Maverick D2 dac.
Personally i think this system would be pretty good but personally i am not sure if the quality of the dac is up to par. I understand a DAC is a important part of a system but how much of a difference does it really make when you buy a DAC thats worth close to a thousand versus a DAC thats around 300 dollars? Is the difference really noticeable when you purchase $ 1 k+ DACs? I personally don't mind if i had to spend good money for a good amp and headphone but i find myself hesitating to spend equally large amounts in something like a dac. Is this notion wrong? I apologize if this is a question thats been throughly answered and if that is the case i would greatly appreciate it if someone can post a link that can give me knowledge regarding this matter.
