So my first post is under-way...
I've been doing quite a lot of research and my selection for a stand-alone DAC has come down to just the above two DACs. I already have a MF X-10v3 tube output buffer stage and quite like the sound of it. Just want to improve the sound upstream. I'm currently using a Benhringer DEQ2496 as a DAC.
Anyone had experience with both DACs? Which has a more musical mid-range, nicer mid-bass, airy-highs (not a high priority) and stronger dynamics? I've read a lot of reviews but any fresh comments would help a lot. Thanks!
