Hello everyone, I'm once again going to turn to this awesome forum and ask for some advice. I am in need of a DAC to go with my Bijou amp and my DT 880/600s. I am currently looking at the Schiit Bifrost but it's quite costly. If I went with that I think I would go for the Uber Analog and the USB input but that will drive up the price to 500 dollars. How much difference would the Uber Analog upgrade make, worth the cost? I also know I can upgrade it later so that's also an option. I am looking to buy a decent DAC that I will keep forever, basically. The price ceiling is right around 500 dollars but I would prefer to spend less. How much difference in audio quality really is there from a 150 dollar DAC to something in the 500's? I have never had a dedicated DAC or was able to listen to one so I'd like to hear some opinions from people who have owned some in this price range. Thanks!
My current setup goes like this: Xonar STX with opamp mod > Bijou >DT880
