    Default marantz HD dac1 or Teac UD 501

    Not got a dac to use with my sonos at the moment and just looking at these lovely dacs . also could use with my modest onkyo sacd player [ although i now know they cannot emit dsd from spdif ]

    http://www.hifiplus.com/articles/tea...tal-converter/

    https://www.marantz.co.uk/uk/product...oductid=hddac1

    both 499 new . the marantz has a vol control remote which is always handy

    the teac has xlr output which i am guessing will have more output if used into a passive pre

    both are good , any thoughts on these dacs ?

    Hi Phil
    Are you considering these just to use as a dac or headphone amps as well?

    I was looking at the Marantz as a headphone amp/dac. Ended up with a Fostex hp 4bl amp/dac. It is a tiny little thing, Burr Brown dac I think.
    Bit cheaper than both of your options. Has usb and toskink input, and rca out as well all on the back with 4 pin balanced headphone out as well as normal trs jack out on the front
    Maybe you could get a cable made 4 pin xlr to r and l xlr out to take advantage of the higher balanced output.

    thanks mand
    yes just as a dac . I rather like remote control volume controls [ like my bel canto dac3.5] becuase sometimes if you get a pre amp with no remote you can use the remote on the dac . just makes for more flexibility for a an inveterate box swapper

    Not sure the Teac volume works for the pre outs it's just for the headphone amp. At least if it works the same as mine, a UD-H01. Got it last week for 125, I think it's bloody brilliant.

    It's the going rate, well 125-150, for the H01, not the 501 you first mentioned.

    i think the ud ho1 was on the forum for about 5mins before it sold so not surprising !! and i just love the jolida ..... i am using it with an amp that i will not admit to using and you won`t believe the sound [ the amp cost me 150 quid s/h and is made in cambridge to give you a clue !!!]
