    Default Wanted : DAC

    Somewhere between 150 and 250. I would prefer one with a USB input DSD and 384KHz sample rates unnecessary!
    Thanks for looking

    You'll be wanting a Caiman SEG then! Google Beresford DAC, read all the good reviews on here (beresford banter) and then PM Stan Beresford direct for an unbeatable price.
    I've just had my one upgraded to current spec and bought the Dorado power supply (just about the upper limit of your budget all in) and have to say it ranks as one of the two most significant upgrades to my system I've ever made!
    Stan also offers a money back guarantee so you can't really go far wrong.

    I've got an M2Tech Young DAC with an MCRU power supply going spare if that's of interest.

    Few threads on here about them:
    https://theartofsound.net/forum/show...t=M2Tech+young
    https://theartofsound.net/forum/show...t=M2Tech+young

    Would be the top of your price range though - 250.

    One thing that has been mentioned on here though (and can't find the thread with a quick search) is that there are problems when trying to use from a Windows 10 source. As in it won't connect

    Cheers
    Dave

    You didn't mean necessary? What bit and sample rates do you want?

    Up to 24/192 at very most. It's just to play my ripped CD collection, so 99% of the stuff is 16/44. No intentions of using streaming services.

    It would also be wise that the DAC is compatible with Windows 10 and latest MAC operation systems. Anything Windows 7 only probably best avoided.

    Thanks - I hadn't realised that was an issue. That rather rules out older models, - digital doesn't age gracefully, does it?
