Best Vintage Dac??

I'm looking for one of the above,or,some suggestions,to find one
Its for a desktop setup,with the new Elears.
Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Mike - Curious what you mean when you say "vintage".  DACs are a somewhat newer technical development.  "Newer" being truest, I suppose, relative to them as standalone devices.  I usually associate vintage with something old...say, mftd.  25 years ago or more.   Since DAC technology has been advancing rapidly, I'm not certain how well served you would be with a "vintage" DAC, whatever that means.  Of course, giving an idea about your budget will help with better quality suggestions.  Regardless, this link might be of some interest. 

If small, affordable and newer is of any interest, you might find a device from Audioquest (Dragonfly), iFi or Schiit a good choice.    

Good luck in your search.  
Hey ghosthouse - remember Audio Alchemy?  1980's...
I owned the entire line up at the time. Quite good in it's day.

EAD DSP-7000 is champion.

+1  as long as it's the MKIII version.  Great DAC!
the Audio quest dragon fly blows the doors of my  MSB Link3 i would stick with something newer I agree with ghosthouse
I just purchase the Elears as well, but went with Ayre Codex for the DAC.  Only a week breakin so far, but I do like what I'm hearing.
But to answer your question I  might look towards a Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista DAC
Why the hell would you want a vintage DAC...??! There are so many excellent modern budget DACs...
In the past i’ve owned a California Audio Lab’s (CAL) Alpha, a Audio Alchemy Digital Decoding Engine v10 (DAC) and a Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista. These days they are all considered very vintage. Of the three, the Tri-Vista was the better, followed by the CAL Alpha, yet the AA DAC was pretty good, looking back.

Of the 3 the Audio Alchemy device may have the lowest current value.

The strange thing is, I never sold the CAL or the AA and have them stored away.
