Uh-oh, Now He's Looking at DACs!
A couple of years ago when I was first mucking about with my hi-fi system I purchased the re-vamped Cambridge DACMagic. It seemed to work well with my set-up, although I admit that when I upgraded to the Primare CDP and amp, I took it out of the CD playback equation, although it still contributes to computer-based listening and also my limited AV set-up.
In anticipation of an influx of funds as a result of my sale of a lens on Fleabay, and following my butterfly-like deliberations over whether to buy a media streamer, a new camera, or even another lens, my thoughts came near to full circle when I began to wonder about a DAC upgrade.
The question is: will a sub-£1000 DAC such as the Rega or Audiolab M-DAC appreciably improve my listening via Primare CD31 and I30 combination and/or be a sensible upgrade to my listening from computer?
By the way, at the end of the various boxes and pieces of string is a pair of ProAc Studio 140 Mk2 speakers.
I suddenly realised that the Other Half is away for three nights, commencing Sunday, so I have very little time to seize an opportunity to audition something. So, all contributions gratefully received on the advice front - PDQ!
