One word of caution, about the Audiolab M-DAC. IMO...and I'm a single-source, digital guy (so I've owned like, 10 DACs...lol); it has a very nice feature set...and my favorite chip, in the ESS Sabre 9018. But it is pretty cheaply built, I thought; and I had a ground-loop issue...when connected to my home-built streamer (likely due to the M-DACs power-supply).
I know the unit has a lot of support, and that's good; Paul Westlake has his forum groupies. Just a word of caution. FWIW...I say stick with the Peachtree. Those guys put out a good product, for the price.
