Audiolab 8200CD DAC vs. Audiolab M-DAC
Im curious to know which is the better DAC, and whether there are any differences between the two.
After much searching around, I have found these two models are the cheapest for a 32bit DAC.
Any other suggestions?
Furthermore, What is the difference (if any) between the USB ports for connecting to digital music source (PC presumably).
The 8200CD has the advantage of CD player fuction too. I have read somewhere that it rates highly as a CD player too, nevermind the DAC.
But how does the CD fuction compare to lets say the award winning Marantz 6004 CD player?
Why would anyone go for the M-DAC when the 8200CD has same spec, plus a quality CD player for a small amount of money difference.
I dont have the time to test both out against each other.
Please share your thoughts and experiences.
