Looking for a DAC to use with a new computer

    I'm currently looking to buy a new pc so now would probably be a good time to find a DAC to go with my Stepdance/LCD 2's.
    Can someone reccomend some good low/mid budget DAC's please?
     
    I live in Switzerland so the selection is limited and importing can be complicated.

    ODAC?

    Thanks for your suggestion.
     
    I have only been able to find one review of this DAC on headfi and it was semi favourable. They do ship to Switzerland but customs will probably add 1/3 to the price. Then again it's not easy to find such products locally.

    The ODAC is an open design available in finished form from several distributors. Isn't this a Swiss web site?

    There are more reviews on Head-Fi than the ones in the thread below.

    The shop of the website is actually located in the same area as I am. I should be able to swing by and pick one up. Great suggestion. Thanks again.

    I don't know anything about Head-N-HiFi, but they're one of the named distributors on the original engineer's blog.

    That's good news. Did you buy the ODAC or O2+ODAC?
     
    If you end up liking it, would you consider posting a short review?

    I bought the ODAC.
    I do like it but I'm probably not the right person to review it since I dont really have anything to compare it to.
