This one is worth mentioning ....... and it's on its way . Valab WM8741 24bit 192k USB DAC - Dual WM8741 $ 330 + $ 50 shipping http://www.ebay.com/itm/Valab-WM8741-24bit-192k-USB-DAC-Dual-WM8741-Balanced-XLR-Output-Silver-Face-/280907938626?pt=US_CD_Players_Recorders&hash=item41676afb42
I have the Schiit Bifrost and it is very good. Although I did not do "technical" type testing. I did compare it to my Benchmark USB DAC1 and it sounding about 80 to 90% as good. So as one poster noted, it can hold it's own.It is very neutral and very clean in it's presentation of the music. I don't use it as a USB device. I use it via Toslink.IMHO
What do you like about the Benchmark over the Bifrost? Thanks.
