Best DAC under £500?
I'm currently running in some Spendor A5 speakers, NVA AP70 amp with NVA LS1 cable.
I play mostly from Spotify Premium with some high quality iTunes files from my Macbook Air, either via Airport Express or via USB to an Arcam rDac. It's sounding good, but can't help wondering if I could take it a step further with the source, but still using digital.
I've been reading about the Rega DAC and they are supposed to be even better than the Arcam rDac, would you agree? What would the difference be? Are there any other DACs on the market to try?
What difference do the filters/settings on the Rega DAC do?
