boss louie, i am using the audiolab m-dac.  Na compare ko lang sya vs dac magic plus, mas nagustuhan ko ang tunog.  but the dac magic plus doesn't sound bad.  although i am not an audiophile to judge :P  Maraming users ng m-dac dto sa SG.  Magaganda naman ang feedback.  Mas mahal nga lang talaga sya ng Php10k ;D  Isa pang nagustuhan ko sa m-dac is ung connectivity nya.  I was able to hook both my amp and powered speakers at the same time (RCA and BALANCE)

Am using an audiolab mdac and very pleased with it. It is very flexible and can be used as a preamp or headphone amp. You could also customize the sound on the fly. Sound is full rich and prat is very good.

It will be beneficial if you plan in advance the primary use.
1) Is it purely for computer use? USB
2) CDP or SACD? COAX, AES, Optical
3) Blu-ray or Universal Player? HDMI
4) How many inputs do you need per input type?
There are some DACs that have better USB input than COAX and vise versa.

Then also consider the input of your tube amp as this will dictate the needed output of the DAC.
a) RCA?
b) Balanced Line?

A Third consideration is if you need volume control with remote for the DAC if your Tube Pre-amp does not have a remote.

With these three considerations, hopefully you will avoid an immediate upgrade.

ano na po ba ang okey na dac na maganda para sa tube amp.

yun po sana locally available.

salamat

Better to get a dac/streamer than to use the ac ryan as source.
