Benchmark DAC3 HGC or Lynx Hilo?


Does anyone have experience with comparing each of these side by side? Looking for best possible sound.
I own a Benchmark DAC1-USB and a Lynx PC Card. Both sound great, however it’s time to upgrade. 

Any suggestions? Max budget $2400.

Do you need the preamp portion of a DAC?
what are your system goals?
what is your system?

just get the benchmark.
with limited data provided, that’s my commensurate answer...😉
