Can I do better for the same $$?


Recommended Posts

With the following limitations:


Windows only.

DAC must have a volume control.

DAC must be able to drive a tri-amped system directly.


For the same amount of $$, can I do better than:


Dell Mini 9 music server ($200)

W4S DAC2 ($1500)

Wireworld Starlight USB cable ($85)


The rest of the system is:



Mirage OMD-28 speakers tri-amped by:

Threshold S-300II on woofers

VTL MB-225's midrange

VTL ST-85 highs

JPS Superconductor + cabling

JRMC v15


Any thoughts?
