Default What dac kit?


I'm new to this forum and I would have liked to have your opinion about my project to build a kit dac able to do better than my dac Counterpoint DA10 Ultra Analog is already an excellent level of quality.

To locate my claim here is my system:
PC optimized music (including usb card SOTM) - VortexBox - USB interface / SPDIF SOTM Superclock (all on 100A battery) - Counterpoint dac DA10 - SE 300B Tosca AT5 - Avant Garde Duo.

I'm interested in the DDDAC 1794 Version 4 cards I also will feed on the battery.
Could you compare this kit to high-end dac trade?

Thank you for reading, sorry for my language I use Google translation

FOR SALE : SOEKRIS dam1021 / 0.02%

R2R DAC with FIFO (jitter free technology) and isolator chip at the input; clock made by a FGPA; output SE or balanced

But need a serie interface (12 euros) for programming the FIR filters and of course time (it's not a ready made kit you need a little work for the input stage but members are developping a little pcb to have a clean box presentation ! ). I have no time as I am building three others multibit DACs.

But still a Delta-Sigma dac chip... even if this one seems one of the goods todays chips like some ESS ones!

But will stay on a multibit DAC or a R2R (and a TotalDac if you can afford it...)
