Rega DAC, Audiolab mDac
I still haven't decided what to do with my dacmagic. For some time I have not been satisfied with the sound of my system (Naim XS-2 + dacmagic + van den Hul Snowline + B&W CM7 ), but I couldn't really point what was failing. I decided to upgrade the cables for the Naim NAC5, and that brought A LOT of character and dynamism to the bass and made the top end less harsh.
Since it seems that I'm using my computer as only source, I thought that an upgrade of the dac would not hurt. I have read a lot about the Rega Dac and the Audiolab mDac, but suprissingly, never found a thread where someone had used both and compared how it felt with each of them.
I don't think that I would buy one or the other without, at least, having an audition at the shop. However, I usually find other users comments very informative and perhaps, sometimes can hint problems with certain equipment (and both are out of stock were I live).
So...anyone who has tested these two and want to share some knowledge?
