Props to that guy for recommending BlueJeansCable. They're my go-to for workhorse quality.I'm behind the curve but I just watched this Modi review 'cause it popped up on my YouTube page and I think it has something for everyone...
Yes, everyone! Even our @JohnVF who detests the pleonastic Schiit jokes (C'mon John, just for you it's got a Schiit counter and an espresso intermission, which is followed by one of the greatest reviewer lines ever at 7:40! )
Check it out.
I got one via "Karma" on the Polks fora -- for the cost of shipping.I'm gonna need a DAC, eventually. I just cannot get excited about buying one.
That's some pretty good Karma !I got one via "Karma" on the Polks fora -- for the cost of shipping.
Bryston BDA-1. I guess it has a known issue with its USB, umm, errrrm... channel, but I can live with that.

They make such things?Input, it's a USB input.
Thats a very nice sounding DAC despite the early/lousy USB implementation limited to 48kHz maximum sample rate.
If a USB source is desirable, it would be best to connect it to the BDA-1 via a USB -> SPDIF converter, skipping that old skool adaptive mode USB input entirely.
Lots of vendors just waiting to take your money ! Heck, you could possibly even DIY one.They make such things?
All the rage these days, silly good performance for beer budget outlay.There's a Raspberry Pi in a box sittin' not 15 feet from me as I type this.
My son bought it with the thought of making a little media player out of it -- but ended up buying one instead.
