I thought of moving into something decent and start by buying my self a ATM-M50 and at first i was thinking of going with the HRT Music Streamer II but recently i read somewhere that it does not do good when it comes to music with really fast dynamics. I listen to a lot of Metal so now i am in doubt to go with the HRT. and few days back i came across the TubeMagic D2 DAC and its backed up by some good reviews. seems like it performs well for a DAC which costs around $200. so what do you guys think? it would be awesome if you guys could recommend me something nice below $200. currently im using an amp based on a single NE5532P and have plans to use it with the DAC im gonna buy and the M50 till i upgrade to something exciting in the future ( not anytime soon though) would be nice to get recommendations on good amps below $200 as well (additional $200 apart from what im hoping to pay for the DAC). thanks
