I originally posted in the Introductions forum, and it was recommended I try posting here.
I'm starting from scratch to get back into audiophilia. My budget is pointing me to desktop/headphone system rather than full listening room system. as I get acquainted with all the possibilities and new gear, I see references boasting the specific type of DAC chips used in some products.. e.g.. Wolfson, Sabre, or gate arrays etc. I don't live in an area where I can listen to a lot of gear, so rely on posts and articles. it would be cool of someone can point me to info that would compare these. how do they differ?
