WTB : Budget DAC for SB3

Hi,

I'm in the lookout for a used budget DAC for my SB3.
Anyone upgrading?  :green:

Thanks!

I have an older model Ack Dack (1.2d, I think -- I'll have to look).  I previously upgraded to the 2.0 (though honestly I've never performed a test between the two -- maybe I should do that before I sell the 1.2d?).

you could also try something from http://www.diykits.com.hk/dac.html

The Zhaolu and Lite dacs are suposed to be very good , maybe the LITE DAC-AH ?

FYI, you can order the LITE DAC-AH from Danny @ GR-Research (Texas)

Unbelieveable kit. If you can't handle a kit let me know.

I have a Mhdt Labs "Constantine" in excellent condition that I'll part with for $270 shipped CONUS.

IMO, at those prices, both the Daniels and the MHDT are excellent choices.  All depends on what sound you want.
