Hello Head-Fi, first post here and I need some help choosing between 3 DACs.
Cambridge DAC magic plus
Nuforce Icon HDP
and the NAD 1050
The main task of the DAC will be to feed a Cambridge Azur 550a amp, receiving inputs from a macbook pro, apple TV, and a CD player.
At the moment I have an old(ish) pair of Sennheiser hd555s and am looking to upgrade to a pair of hd600s or 650s in the next couple of months, so I like the idea of these three DACs because of the headphone amp and the pre-amp stage will be useful as well down the track (the Azur550a is on loan and will have to be returned at the end of this year - I may just replace it with a power amp).
I'd like to get a product that can do those three things, because of budget limitations buying separates this year would be out of the question.
I listen to a vast variety of music from rock to jazz to electronica to psy-trance.
thanks in advance.
