    The best I have heard is a Halide Bridge.
    Pretty damn awesome sq!
    It leaves the cheaper Chinese converters trailing in its wake by a mile.

    I've 2.

    One with BNC connector is up for sale in the classifieds. Use it with an RCA adapter if required. It can be somewhat iffy to get it to work sometimes, a bit of cable jiggling required.
    You can borrow it to try if you want, Lawrence.

    Thanks for that Jerry I'll definitely consider your offer, though I do need RCA and I know the need for jiggling will drive me nuts after a while!

    Well,usually, once it is successfully jiggled it stays that way until you disturb it again and then sometimes it has to be re-jiggled.
    But - whatever - just try it to see if you want one.
    I think they sound pretty damn amazing.
    It's a real eye- and ear- opener how much you are losing using other USB/SPDIF converters - including, presumably, those normally resident in USB-input DACs.

    +1 for the Halide Bridge, I use one occasionally when I want to connect my Macbook to the system.

    Only negative is 24/96 limit depending on your files.

    I take your point and as always you are very generous offering to lend stuff, I've got my eye on something right now, if it's not exactly to my taste I might take you up for a comparison. At the moment I wouldn't know how good it is not having heard another convertor in my system.

    I can bring a couple over for you to have a listen to at some point.
