Considering this package is gonna cost me $2500, can I do better in a more practical way? The Rumour concerns me on the last stage to my newly acquired JBL LSR6328s. $2500 is the LIMIT on the AD DA.
Ultimately, I will go for a higher end DA when money allows but if I can do it all now - why not, that's why I need "YOUR" help! What to do?
Get the Mytek 8x96 w/Adat, but not for 2 grand more like $1800. Take that 700 and scrap together another 100.00 and buy a used Benchmark Dac-1(one of the best 2ch DA on the market). This is what I paid for my Mytek with adat opt, and I just sold a Benchmark Dac-1 for $800.00.
With this setup, you can rest assured you got the most out of $2600.00.
