    @Ed Selley hasn't been around in a while, I wonder what he’d recommend nowadays.

    Also kind of curious on this. Still pondering getting a DAC upgrade for my old Sony SACD player. Had been looking at the Musical Fidelity MX-DAC (because of how impressed I’ve been with the MX-VNYL phono) but it really is an area I’m blind on.

    I'm not really a digital guy. I have an Emotiva that we mostly use for TV/movies.

    I'd look towards Schiit if I were in the market. There's also a ton of choices on Massdrop. If I were going to drop serious money (which I will for vinyl but won't for digital) Wyred 4 Sound would be top of the list.

    Sorry- lost to a world of divorce and (ironically) digital. The latter is because I now do support and consultancy for Chord Electronics. As such I imagine you don't need to guess where my preferences would lie in that particular selection...
