$500 Digital Source to Complete $2K Bedroom System
My objective is to build a bedroom system for $2K and need some advice on the digital source.
Equipment purchased: Sophia Baby, Zu Omen, Squeezebox, Zu & Kimber cables
Balance of Budget: $500
- CDP & Squeezebox source
- Components <13" wide (shelf width)
- Sophia has 1 input
(1) DACMagic or MF V-DAC (~$300) and CDP for transport (~$200). CDP & Squeezebox -> DAC -> Sophia
Q1. What other ~$300 DACs (with 2 inputs) should I consider?
Q2. What's a good CDP for transport (~$200 & <13" wide)?
(2) CDP with digital in. Squeezebox -> CDP -> Sophia. I like the Quad CDP99. It's 13" wide & has dig in, but it's >$500 used.
Q3. Other CDPs with dig in, ~$500, and <13" wide (preferably)?
Q4. Other suggestions?
