Home Digital Drive

Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.


The only thing you can do is TRY a new DAC to see if you like it. There are some pricey DACs that sound pretty lame and others that are reasonably priced that are outstanding.

I wouldn't mind trying the Oppo Sonica DAC except for the fact that I had the Oppo HA-1 DAC/Headphone amp that wasn't quite right for me. It was a little lean, almost bright, not much warmth or 'meat' in the mids.

Is there something about your present Oppo 105 that you're trying to improve upon sonically?

You can find many outstanding DACs for well under $2500, but it would be tough to know what to get w/o trying it yourself. Schiit is a popular brand of modestly priced DACs. Same for Wyred4Sound and PS Audio. I'm sure I'm missing several others but the point is, you don't have to spend a ton of money these days to get an outstanding DAC.
