Hello everyone,
I wanted to upgrade my Gamma 2 and was wondering if there where any other DIY DACs out there.  
Thanks in advance

I hear really good things about the Buffalo III on the other hand I have never heard of the acko. Which one is easier to build and which one sounds better?  Also for the Buffalo III, is it also an amp?

Both have almost the same price but the board from Acko is made of higher quality. Plus they have a lot more accessories and quick to adapt new changes.

Meanwhile TPA took more than 3 years (and still counting) to develop an USB board and keep in mind, this is not their main job so don't expect quick support if you ever got into trouble.

What about TDA based (or any other NOS) dac? I know these are less Hi-Fi but alot of people prefer the way they sound like vinyl. Natural. And still very detailed with great imaging and so.
