A recent article in AudioPhile Review, by Steven Stone discusses "price to actual performance" of some components.

Are You Missing Something?

In this article, Steven says the following regarding DACS:

When it comes to digital electronics there is no readily-apparent reason other than the lack of any economies of scale that DACs need to cost over five figures to be sonically excellent. I've heard a number of recently released DACs all priced under $2,000 that sounded as good as I've heard any DAC sound - these include the Aurender "Flow", Geekout V2, and the NuPrime DAC-10. Granted, none of these DACs have thick luxuriant front panels or gold-plated knobs, but they all did digital conversions with a level of finesse that rivaled many DACs I've heard in the past that do sport golden appendages.


DAC-10 ($1495) and DAC-10H $1795

Pretty impressive review.  I concur with the preamp/dac findings.
