Budget is $500.
I know there are a lot of entry level dacs around the $500 mark. Arcam, Cambridge, MF, Peachtree, etc.
From the research I have done, I feel like the Peachtree DacIt is the way to go.
However, any thoughts on if a used PS audio digital link 3 would best all of these new entry level dacs?
I will not be running usb, and I will not need balanced connections.
Basically I will have the squeezebox connected via coax and the TV connected via optical.
The PS audio interests me as I have a PS phono stage, and I could set them next to each other on the shelf.
Edit...This will be paired with a Parasound P3 and a B&K 200.2.
