Please let me know what you think, as that's what I plan to use to stream music (not the duet, though). I will eventually get an outboard DAC for it and the CDP, though. I really liked the PS Audio III that I heard, but they are stopping production of it, plus it's the only DAC I've experienced, so I'll keep looking. The TADAC sounds interesting. Does anyone have any direct experience with it?
As far as DAC's go, I don't want anything to necessarily change the tonality per se, but rather increase the soundstage width and depth, and help with imaging. This is what I heard the PS Audio unit do with a new pair of Salk HT2 TL's, so I'm looking for something just like that and for around the same price or less.
Oh, and I guess I am in the market for a really decent CD player with a great DAC...something to tide me over until I buy the ourboard DAC. You guys think I should pick up the new Oppo (whenever it's released), or should I not bother since I'll be getting a DAC down the road? I was originally going to be getting the Oppo 980, but I hear the dac isn't the greatest...
Enjoy your new toy, godawg!
