I'm looking to upgrade my setup from my current Asus Essence One. I've already decided on the phonitor 2 as my headphone amp (expensive, but the crossfeed really intrigues me) and I'm hoping to find a suitable DAC to match it. I hope to find something below 1k and currently I'm most interested in the Yulong D18, with the Schiit Gungnir as a close 2nd choice.
Does anyone have any recommendations on DACs that are around that price/performace or comparisons of the DACs? This setup will be used primarily to run my HE500 and HE560 (when I eventually get it) although it will be often used with my DT880.
