I was able to try the DAC Magic Plus. Did not match my gears. Too thin, dry, and lifeless.

Out of your current budget loiue, would you still want to home audition the w4s dac 2? Or maybe the mInt which is an integrated amp with a built in dac.... For future reference lang naman.
Let me know so I can hook you up... No point looking for a weak link in you already highend setup....

Wow thanks so much sir Sonny for the generous offer.
Pag isipan ko po kasi baka maiyak lang ako kapag yan nga ang hinahanap ko kasi times 3 ata price nya compared with my budget, hehehe ;D
Katulad nung mga dinala nila dodie at mangboy na highend TT last week, naiyak kaming lahat sa ganda pero mas naiyak kami sa presyo... ;D
Pero I read great things about the w4s dac 2... I'm sure it would perfectly fit my system.
The thing is, it will not fit my pocket, hehehe

Try the HRT Music Streamer Pro.  My friend had excellent results with it and I heard it.  If I did not have an existing DAC I would get the HRT Music Streamer Pro. I like it than the Rega DAC.  I recommend this as you indicated that your budget is within the price of the Rega DAC.

Btw, the limitation pala is that it only has a USB input.

Sayang if USB interface lang cya.
I want to concentrate kasi with my NP30 and Cayin CD17 as sources.
If I will use my laptop parang magiging useless na si NP30... Sayang naman ;D

And if you need it with a computer, just look for a USB to SPDIF converter

Could you give an in depth personal review of that DAC and why do you recommend it?

For the benchmark DAC, there a lot of reviews but I can recommend the review at sixmoons.com.  I am not so good at describing but the review at sixmoons describe it well.
