Great list of DAC info.
I'm using a PopPulse PCM1796 MKII that I found on ebay for $185. Wow, what a great buy; quality construction and amazing sound. The unit is compartmentalized to separate power transformer from the DAC circuitry.
Here's a link to the photos and specs: Pop Pulse - Product - Pop Pulse - PCM1796 DAC MKII

I did not see any mention of e-bay specials out of guess where? I have several. One was so bad I sent it back. (A Wolfson that had dropouts and noise) Another is clearly better than it's price and has a fair headphone amp in it too ( BB ). Needs a serious power supply upgrade and some tweaking on the analog, but a really good base for DIY.

The Onkyo 32-bit DAC is listed on e.Bay:
ONKYO DAC-1000 32bit/192kHz USB DAC DA Converter | eBay
But it is for Japan; runs on 100 VAC.

Default Fiio E17 Alpen ?

The FiiO E17 Alpen has been getting good reviews and might be worth a spot in this list. $150. Spdif (coax and optical) inputs and line out. Headphone amp. Very portable. Runs on batteries and probably on a "charger" as well for ac line duty.

So I've had the e17 for a little bit now and it seems pretty good so far. No hiss at 0 gain but there is some when you turn the gain up but that's to be expected. SQ is definitely better than what my macbook pro puts out through the headphone jack - the bass is much better and there's less noise.

It'll mainly be used for my playstation though, so the only music this thing is going to be reproducing is gunfire
