I'm currently looking for an R2R dac to pair with my benchmark AHB2 and hifiman susvaras.

Currently I'm looking at the holo spring 2 (Wildism extreme edition), Holo may, and denafrips terminator.

I know that its going to be pretty hard to go "wrong" with any of these, but am curious if anyone has tried and could give thoughts on any of the following?

-Holo spring 2, Lvl 1 vs lvl 3
-Holo spring 2 vs Denafrips Terminator
-Holo spring 2 vs Holo May
-Any other suggestions you might have.

Really not sure which way to go with this, would love some advice.

Since youre already looking at some high end DACs I will suggest looking into a used Lampizator DAC. I say used as they have moved away from the R2R design for their current DACs.

I have the Lampizator Atlantic TRP and it smokes all of the other R2R designs Ive owned/heard.

Any friend that I have talked to that used a Lampizator Amber 3 seems to love it. I think you can find a fair price used. Best of luck with your search
