Maybe the odd one...but many threads seems to be constantly getting bombarded by attempts to divert traffic to an alternative site....Shill?

If you just want a transparent ( contemporary oversampling design)  dac then check the measurements and choose something on the features you require , preamp, headphone amp EQ, etc etc.

It’s a fine and noble theory but unfortunately measurements do not guarantee transparency.

My DAC was about 10% of total system cost.  Vinyl rig about 60%!

Ahh a Monty Python style response to an argument. 

Well I suppose it makes a change from providing a link to the proffesors of musical reality website.

What percentage of your system budget would many of you spend on a DAC? 

Enough! Are you a WHF refugee? This is an irrelevance put about with the encouragement of cable manufacturers, I'm sure... that's like comparing cart, arm and turntable components by percentage cost: basically irrelevant. Sorry, touched a nerve...

Because he has one but never listens to it; he doesn't need to, you see, because it measures well.
