New DIY DAC to replace my DacMagic
 
Hi Guys,

I d like to replace my Dacmagic dac by a DIY one that would ideally give better results.

The dac will be mainly used for my Squeezebox Touch and I d like to stay around 200 for this project.

Would you say that at this budget, I ll be able to get something better than the cambridge?

Cheers :)

ODAC? Only one USB-input but the performance is supposed to be good. And it comes at less than €200.

Forgot to say, the dac input has to be either coax or optical. USB output on squeezebox touch is not optimal.

Nevertheless, although Cambridge Audio's DAC-Magic
- predecessor from the top device about

is clearly to beat regarded the sonic quality, it is not easy to beat.

If you mean the new DAC-MAGIC about

I am not sure, because I haven't heard.
