As my beloved Weiss dac and it's Firewire prime connection scheme is slowly fading into a non supported discontinued sunset replacement time is near.   Obviously the Weiss dac 501 would be the top contender and since I live 10 minutes from the Grammy winning weiss headquarters in Uster Switzerland the decision is clear. BUT.... the 8000 bucks starting price is a little 🤑 for my bank account.    I am looking for a usb dac, usb dac/streamer solution in the 4000 range that would make do.....Thanx.  Jim

T+A DAC8DSD ... or maybe Holo Audio May ... both need an external streamer such as the NAA capable opticalRendu for example. NAA is required for HQPlayer software.

Can't you use an USB to AES-EBU converter and keep the DAC202? Weiss INT204 for example.
