I’m trying to put together a list of 5 grand DACs for me to look into/trial/buy…
The market is really congested at the grand price range but I’m trying to push the boat out a little bit more and look in the ‘up to 5 grand’ price level; so perhaps 2-5 grand.
So I’m putting together a list of candidates for me to trial. tbh the ultimate choice will also depend on what I can actually get to listen to but I thought let’s get a full list together and then I can start to whittle it down.
So far, reading and perusing ‘the net’ I have:
Spring DAC2 LTE USD2700
Datastream Junior £4000
Bryston BDA-3 £3600
Benchmark DAC3 £1900
Note Chord is NOT in the list… sorry but I can’t live with the styling theme that Chord follow. A shame but I have to look at the system in the living room and Chord simply doesn’t do it for me.
Any ideas please?
Note I’ve rejected the idea of an all in one network bridge/DAC. So DAC only.
