I want a DAC that can do DSD decoding and was considering the following setup, I already have the NAS, PC and Power AMP so what I need is some combo of DAC and Preamp..
NAS -> NA8005 -> Tube Preamp -> Power Amp -> LS50
PC -> Mytek Stereo 192 DSD-DAC Preamp -> Power AMP -> LS50
Option 1 is more expensive, but will give me all the connection I need, I probably will keep tube preamp for a long time if it sounds good, down the road, replace NA8005 with another network enabled dac player maybe cheaper than replacing DAC/Preamp..
Option 2 will be cheaper, the drawback is no NAS support and not sure if Mytek will sound warm enough with LS50, and it will cost more down the road to replace DAC/Preamp compare to NAS DAC Player
