Looking for an older DAC for about $500. The BDA -1 seems to fit the bill.
I want to use it with my Bluesound Node 2i and Accuphase DP-55 cd player.
I figure I can get full 192K from Qobuz and at the same time get an upgrade to my CD player.
My system is an Atma Sphere preamp, MK60 mono blocks and Sound Lab Quantum speakers
Also have a vinyl set up.
My system is 20 plus years old. I'm looking to upgrade but don't have a lot of cash flow.
BDA-1 seems to fit - multiple inputs, balanced output, upsampling. I can get one for $5-$600.
My other choice is a Gustard X20. It also has multiple inputs and balanced
Any recommendations of Bryston or Gustard
Any one still using the BDA-1 DAC. How does it match with a tube system.
Also interested in comments of the sound (in general) of the BDA-1
