@Thyname Which PSU options do you have on your Discrete? 
Denafrips Terminator vs other dacs
@thyname sorry I thought you were talking about Select dac.For discrete dac wouldn't people necessarily recommend the separate power base? In which case it would be $20k. Without the power base is the discrete dac better than all other options in ... 
Denafrips Terminator vs other dacs
@thyname, fair enough but its also a $100k dac. Its more than 10x the cash for the dacs we are discussing.

@audiotroy you like the 9H or sopra 3 more ? 
Used DACs in the 10k range
@audiotroy  thank you for the organised list, which tube pre would you go for? I'd like to keep it under $10k used 
Used DACs in the 10k range
@hk_fan  is that a cd [email protected]  Thanks man. Zenith is fairly pricey and I already have a pretty well regarded network streamer SOTM 200 ultra which is powered by an SPS 500 to try and detach the audio from my pc (it plays through ethernet...
