Default Russ andrews dac 1 vs Headroom Portable Desktop amp

Hi And thanks for reading this post.

I have been offered the above two dacs and really need some advice on which one to go for.
A quick google search indicates these are both good usb dacs but is one better than the other, would love to hear your feedback.
These are old dacs from 2006, is it worth buying these or is a modern usb dac a better choice.
The russ andrews is a copy of the stello da100 signature.

Many thanks in advance. John.

Anybody have any thoughts?

I was under the impression that these two units from 2006 were a little dated, that usb dacs have advanced quite a lot since then.
However it does appear the russ andrews unit and the stello signature are still for sale.

They are being offered at £250 each (used), how does that sound. Or is a newer dac more advisable.

Many thanks. John.
