Looking for DAC reccomendations (~500 USD)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys,

 

Looking to replace my Modi with something new, looking to spend up to around 500 USD.

 

I am a big fan of Schiit so an Uberfrost is currently on the top of my list but I am looking for competing suggestions to give me something to think about. It can be a pure DAC or DAC/AMP combo. It will be paired with my Schiit Lyr and Alpha Dogs as a desktop setup.

 

Cheers,
