Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with the Musical Fidelity X-DACv3 D/A Converter or the X-10v3 Tube buffer Stage.
I am really needing to improve the cd playback on my 2ch setup. It sounds good as is but, I know it could be much better. According to what I have read here and a few other places it seems that a good DAC on a standard cd player can sometimes render better results than an expensive standalone player.
The reason I ask about the items above is because Music Direct seems to be running a nice offer on both units plus the matching power supply. $1199
Also I noticed that for about the same amount of money I could just buy a Benchmark DAC1 which of course just got a rave review by "steveinaz" http://clubpolk.polkaudio.com/forum/...threadid=27272
If anyone here has opinions on the above mentioned, or other suggestions I would love to here them.
