I originally posted in the Introductions forum, and it was recommended I try posting here.


I'm starting from scratch to get back into audiophilia.  My budget is pointing me to desktop/headphone system rather than full listening room system.  as I get acquainted with all the possibilities and new gear,  I see references boasting the specific type of DAC chips used in some products..  e.g..  Wolfson, Sabre,  or gate arrays etc.   I don't live in an area where I can listen to a lot of gear, so rely on posts and articles.    it would be cool of someone can point me to info that would compare these.  how do they differ?
