better dac

which do you like better McIntosh D100
or NAD M-51 used as a DAC?
Or does anyone have a preferable DAC for $2000 to $3000 range?
Chord Hugo is outstanding and priced right in the middle of your budget.
Chord Qute with a good linear supply and Short-Block USB filter.

Bryston, Naim or LINN ..... final choice depends on the synergy with the rest of your system.
