I had an alpha dac for quite a few years only sold recently due to a lack of 96khz (mine was the non version). To get the best sound out of the dac you would need really high quality transport. I used sd transporter via a high quality aes/ebu cable. Alpha has fairly poor jitter rejection and require sota front end. However I do not believe its all silly to pay more for the digital cable than the dac. It's a very good dac. I probably shouldn't have sold it.
