I'm looking for a DAC to use with my modified Toshiba SD 3960 SU DVD player. This DAC will also have to decode different codecs since my system is both a stereo and HT system. My preamp is the EE Minimax. I don't want to spend a lot but if that means I'm getting tremendous value then I just might. Anyways, there's a new crop out there that i'm not aware of their sound like the Keces, Zhaolu and some other lesser known. Also the new MHDT Havana and any other USB ready. I prefer a nice midrange to begin with. Suggestions are appreciated.
You may want to take a look at the Valab Dac sold on Ebay, it is a NOS Dac with 8 x 1543 chips, has Coax,USB and Toslink inputs. It sells for $180.00 shipped from Taiwan, excellent sounding Dac that is shockingly good, period.
