A lot of votes for the Dangerous AD+.
Is it on the transparent side or does it have a distinct sound in the same way Burl has its own distinct sound?

To me it’s very true when fed conservative levels. But it can take a beating and still capture cleanly. If you want some color, push the xformer and emphasis button. I never use it. But it’s there if needed.

Dont forget about the BLA White Sparrow.. The sparrows can be found used for good deals these days.

I have compared the Sparrow to the RME ADI-2 Pro AD and far prefer the sparrow (I can not distinguish it from the source)

My need was for clean; the Mytek Stereo192 ADC is doing a fine job.

Anyone here know anything about QES since Val's passing? The website is down and there is no way to reach them.

Back in 2005, an audiophile friend let me listen to the UAD 2192 and I was so surprised at how good it was compared to the state-of-art esoteric DAC/ADC he stuff he had. He was like a dealer so he was constantly changing out pieces. For the money, the 2192 was a good deal and I’m impressed that some here still refer to it. That says something.

I am replacing it with the current Acousence arfi-adc2pro, the 19" version of the same unit. It's still the best converter I know.

EDIT: And yes, I have compared it with the UA2192 and the Burl, among others.
