I'm looking to pick up a budget DAC for myself for Christmas, and was trying to decide between the JDS Labs Odac or Hrt Music Streamer II . I have used the Hrt Music streamer before but I want to see if anyone has had or compared the two. My current setup consists of my laptop that is streaming FLAC files to a Denon DRA-37 and Energy RC-10 speakers. Also if there's another dac for around the same price point I am up for suggestions, thanks.

There is no replacement for displacement

Why not get a DAC that can take multiple inputs? You can buy an Emotiva XDA-1 for around $150 used - comes with a fully transferable 5 year warranty and they seem to work quite well. Since Emotiva is shipping the XDA-2 and the 'gotta have the latest' crowd is flocking to it and dumping their XDA-1s in the process there should be quite a few of them around for sale here and in the Emotiva Lounge Emporium. Take a look.

When all else fails - RTFM!

That would be great, I would prefer a dac with multiple inputs but they are usually at least double the price but I'll definitely check that out. Thanks

Hi

go for the HRT streamer it is a fantastic piece of kit at a great price. Easy to set up. If you are going to make the PC through DAC to amplifier your route get the Streamer.It is so good I have now bought the upgrade to the Pro. If interested look on Ebay as I am selling my Streamer it is only 6 weeks old!! Support from HRT is exceptional always quick and friendly.

If you have any other Q's just ask.

Honestly I could not believe the improvement when playing FLAC files.

Regards Bill
