I need a DAC because my current AK1 is malfunctioning on the headphone jack. Considered the ur22 mk2 by Steinberg, but saw some guy saying that it sounds like a walkman compared to RME Babyface Pro. I assume the ur44 and ur242 sound all the same because it's the same components. Is there that much of a difference between that price range and RME price range? Now I don't know what to do. I don't really want to invest that much to be honest. The AK1 sounds pretty damn good, if the next one I buy sounds as good I will be happy. I wish I had the opportunity to test high end DACs to see if people are on placebo or not. PS: I must also be able to connect my monitors, so one of these super minimalistic interfaces wouldn't do. Personally I dont like the RME Babyface design, I want individual knobs for headphones, monitors etc. The headphones I have are the DT770. Im not interested in recording anything so I dont care about mic quality amps.
