USED Dac, what's good value? Digital Converters

USED Dac, what's good value?

hey guys, I'm in the market for a used DAC to feed my analog loop. Right now I'm feeding the loop with RME UFX, and receiving with Antelope Pure2 (as I'm using the Pure2 for monitoring aswell).

So any tips on DACS that are significantly better than RME UFX and have great value on the used market? I'm thinking 500-1000 euros. I'm leaning towards DA11, DAC1, Mytek192, but I'm a little unsure if they are actually much better than the UFX

Thanks for tips!

If the converters in UCX are anything like the 400 UC's, the DAC1 will be leaps and bounds ahead.

Mytek is great. Lucid 88192 is dirt cheap for what it is (don't know about UFX, but it's miles ahead of fireface400/800), similar quality as lavrys (a bit different sound though).
