I do not yet own the AT-HA5000(short of $ cause of a recent purchase..) but was wonder what would be one of the best USB DACs out there which would do justice for such an amp?(and future additions)
Budget would be around the price of the HA5000, but suggestions for more expensive ones are also welcome so long as the price equates to an ample gain(in source/amp terms) on SQ.

The Keces 151 seems like it might be a good DAC to use while saving up for a much better one.
Since i've already purchased the HeadAmp Pico with the DAC option(should ship this week), would the Keces 151 even be worth considering?
I've also heard people suggesting the Keces 131 would be a better option since i'm already utilizing the M-Audio 192 which has a SPDIF output.

Thanks in advanced!

Leaning in favor of the DAC1 USB/PRE (if the PRE comes in black..).
It's quite far from my budget but seems like it's worth saving for

Does anyone know of a good place i should get these from? Within Australia perhaps?
