RME ADI-2 DAC. This new product from the studio leader RME is so popular it has outsold all of its first 3 runs; RME can't produce enough. Functions as an ideal DAC/Pre with five options for refining the filters from Sharp to NOS.
Give this box a listen if you can find it. It is $999, half rack size, and so good it will blow your socks off.
