Modern Equivalent or better to a Stax DAC-Talent

Recommended Posts

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

Oversampling: 8x

Bit conversion: 20/16

Total harmonic distortion:

0.0015% (1kHz, 0dB)

0.015% (1kHz,-20dB);

1.5% (1kHz,-60dB)

Frequency response: DC ... 20kHz (± 0.5dB)

S / N ratio: 118dB

Dynamic Range: 104dB

Channel Separation: 120dB
