I think, here we are. DACs were almost dead a few years ago and now they're amongst the hottest pieces in all of audio. I had the DAC 3 in my system and then heard it as a DAC 3VB. No comparison. I wouldn't buy a DAC 3 on its own, but what I heard from a DAC 3VB -- magic. I'm sure the 3.5VB is even better, but where do you stop? And I'd bet a good chunk of change a DAC 3VB sounds significantly better than a DAC 1.5 non VB, but I could be wrong. If you can get a DAC 3VB on the cheap you should probably jump on it and live with it happily for a while as the digital landscape continues to shake out. Paying big bucks for a DAC these days seems like a big risk, so buying a great DAC on the cheap seems like a pretty good strategy. Best of luck.
