Thanks Jon for the review. Sounds like a great product and comes recommended. However, I was wondering if you already have a list or can provide a "Highly-recommended" or "Top-10" list of budget DACs for budget-minded listeners (within different price range: $300, 500, $800 and $1000 something like it)?

Thanks in advance.

Good question - I've not really developed one and am pondering how such a list could be created rationally. With the dozens of well-designed and reasonably priced DACs out there, this might be a big project. Would sure make an interesting shoot-out though. hmmm.

Knowing Peachtree's products, I'm sure it's a fine-sounding DAC, but I think the new Schiitt Bifrost is a better DAC. It's also $50 less expensive, can use a real power cord rather than a wall wart (try it with a Shunyata Venom3 for superb results), is upgradeable for both USB and DAC boards, and supports asynch USB up to 24/192. Having owned one for three months, I personally think the Bifrost is better than anything else in the $500 price class and runs VERY close in performance to my $1300 Wadia 121. 

A review of the Bifrost should be on Stereophile's short list.

Hi Stephen - yes that's a good suggestion. I'm hoping to hear the BiFrost soon. Have you heard the DacIT yet? I wasn't expecting much at the price point but was taken aback with how much it sounded like a high-end DAC. They did a great job voicing it.

Purchased a DAC ITx yesterday hoping my 15 year old or so Adcom would be eclipsed by today's technology. After much listening, the Adcom KILLS it in every way. Interesting. I know its not expensive, but was still a little surprised....

"I have these old speakers I've treasured for years, yet when I compared them to the new ones, they blow them out of the water!"

That's a common problem with speakers because they are eletro-mechanical devices. What isn't thought of by some users is electronics also have a burn in time (20 hours recommended by Crutchfield for DAC IT X). Some electronics require much more, and my Schiit USB DAC only sounds good after 70 hours, so it does vary. Just keep that in mind when you compare any HiFi product.
