Do we even have a thread on purchases of new hi-fi? I couldn’t find one!
Anyway I bought these:
5 X SMSL Sanskrit 10 Mk 2 DACs. They got a great write up on the audio science review website that measures DACs and they are about the cheapest thing that isn’t demonstrably shit that still has a coax digital input.
So the system is computer to Lynx 16 channel digital sound card to five of these, then to many amps and speakers. Sounding great at last!
