I have done my fair share of research and have my selection narrowed down to the Concero, Arcam irDAC, and Emotiva DC-1. I know these are different in terms of functionality, but the only thing I would NEED is the DAC via USB. The headphone amp of the DC-1 would be a bonus. I can't find any comparisons between these 3, or even 2. Can anyone help me?
Choosing between 3 DACs

Thanks! Yeah I read through that before, but unfortunately I couldn't really draw any conclusions from that as far as the difference between these, other than that the DC-1 and irDAC fell into the "indistinguishable" category. But it definitely helps and thanks! That thread is interesting because the admin locked it about a month ago and I'm not sure exactly why. I know a lot of people were upset and in disbelief that there was no difference between a hand full of DACs and frankly I was one of them.
