Hey everyone I have been feeling an itch to to get a DAC capable of 24bit/96Khz or better. I currently have and love my Stax DAC talent. About what level of current DAC would exceed the quality of my current DAC?
Do $500 DACs now exceed the quality of classic DACs? Or would I need to spend over $1000 or more to notice a difference?
For those that don't know the DAC has a Burr Brown PCM63P which can do 20bit/48Khz.
Some specs are Digital Filter: 20bit
Bit conversion: 20/16
Total harmonic distortion:
0.0015% (1kHz, 0dB)
Frequency response: DC ... 20kHz (± 0.5dB)
S / N ratio: 118dB
Dynamic Range: 104dB
Channel Separation: 120dB
