We shouldnt be tempted by latest dacs or headphones just because its new.
A good game plan is to try ro save so as to skip over alot gear,
that in essence would just be a "side-grade" more than a real upgrade.
I did my own mistakes with the dacs also.
didnt really need to upgrade from irdac but the oppo was an all in one solution that I could not resist.
Now that I have herd better in the AKM type dacs(Gingnir& LIO),
I have to admit the lesabre dacs were nicely detailed but not optimal for the hd800..
Yeah,at the time I bought the 009's,I was on a real audio bender
I was searching out any & all ways of improving the 009 flavor--the Van Del hull cables ,helped me reach that goal
For the last few weeks,I've been going in a sideways direction,buying vintage dacs,wherever I can find them-at a good price.
It's also a learning curve for me,as I know nothing about gear that's 25 years old.
One item I plan on getting though...yes,you are correct
La Yggdrasil,..LOL..it's a new state of the art,Viking dac.
This will halt my $1K cable purchases,forever.
Have a good night,Later,
