Smile Help me decide on which DAC to build/buy (my 3 choices)

Ive decided to either build a TNT convertus or a Scott Nixon Dac Kit or buy an ART DI/o ready made DAC. Which is the best choice soundwise? IS the ART better than the DIY dacs? The prices are about the same for all.

thanks in advance for your advice.

I have never heard any of them! But I think they all have trade-offs so people with different systems may have different preference. But looking from the design, if I have to implement one without further modification, I will choose convertus (and of course there is not much modification possibility left). But because I would love to do a further modification (which means lifting the price level) I will choose ART, mainly because it is a 24/96.
