So trying to figure out what DAC would be the best.
I want to use USB for hi rez for now and also plan on using a squeezebox down the road.
I want something that has wonderful SQ.
Overall my budget is about 1500.
I've been looking at the Wyred DAC 2, Antelope Silver (I thought it will do 24/192), and the PS Audio PWD (won't do 24/192 on USB unless you get the upgrade).
I'm almost tempted to buy a Schiit Bifrost for now until I can make up my mind what better DAC but don't know if that would just be a waste of money or not.
The PWD I've heard in a system and really like it, however would want to do the upgrade which is another 800 bucks to improve the USB.
The Wyred I've only read is great, but no experience, same with the Antelope which has a different way of dealing with jitter and states is more analog in sound.
I would like something fully balanced and that won't be a pile of junk in about a year. I think the Wyred is upgradable but not sure...
