I am going to be buying a new DAC soon.
I'd narrowed it down to the following two :
* Reference 5.32
I am looking to spend 1k USD or less.
I will be pairing it with the Master 9 and a set of LCD-3's.
An example of my music taste would be :
Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Combichrist.
I've been talking to Kingwa about the above two. He says the NFB is a little warmer and the Reference is a bit more neutral.
I am not sure what would fit my music and personal taste best.
Can anyone give me some pointers?
