Hi,

Any good recommendation & choice ?

Budget wise around US$500-600.
If you can do without xlr how about this killer tube dac/pre from grant fidelity in canada. My friend has the predecessor Dac9 and its super.

Re: DAC recommendation (with XLR & pre-amp)

Going to HK this weekend.

[This item is stocked by our Hong Kong logistics partner "Audio For Less Limited"]

Can't seem to find this company HK address from the net.
Intend to take a look at the product before purchase.
Maybe even can hand carry back home & save on the freight cost.

Any one here can help ?

Regards, E.H. Tan

Re: DAC recommendation (with XLR & pre-amp)

If your open to used items (didn't see in the post where used was off the table), the Benchmark DAC1 is a nice unit. Headphone amp, well received D/A Converter and can be found on the used market for $600 at times. I sold one in the past 3 months for $650 shipped. I'm a bit biased however, I own a Benchmark DAC1 HDR. For my needs it's as source accurate as they come.
