    Thanks, very helpful! Is there any Dac/Amp combo or combination, either portable or not, that outclasses it at its price point?

    [user=429455]@metaglot[/user] Appreciate the feedback.    As I mentioned above, the Aune T1 is a better sounding unit to me (the C5DAC has a better amp though). There's also the Fiio E17, which has just as good a DAC, but a much worse Amp. The Schiit M&M stack (Modi and Magni) is another great option to consider, the Modi as a DAC is better than the C5DAC, but I've never heard the Magni.    Other competitors include the Oppo HA-2 and the Fiio E18, both of which I haven't heard.
