I have been on the look out for a new DAC with a built-in quality Pre + analog input(s). A built-in streamer would be nice but it's not a must.
Here's my short list of new DACs I am following. If you also prefer one box solution like me, then please add any similar (new) DACs to the list.

T+A DAC 200 

Lumin P1

Happy listening.

I own the previous model of the unit above (CP-800) and use it in my bedroom system. Its been a great unit and the DAC sounds very good to these ears. I dont own this new model but if the PreAmp section is anything like my previous model that is very good as well. Stereophile has a full review of the previous model up with measurements..etc in case you want to see more about the box.

 

Of course there are many options that fit the bill but not sure what your budget is for this purchase. I started on the higher end with the above item but it goes UP/DOWN from there

Many thanks.

My budget would be in the range of T+A and Lumin P1 but I could stretch it a bit more for the right DAC.

I’m currently looking at similar but with different emphasis, networked DACs with preamp features a nice to have.

 

I’d add Esoteric K05xd: https://www.esoteric.jp/en/product/n-05xd/top

and TEAC UD701 https://teac.jp/int/product/ud-701n/feature

 

look to be closely related new products, perhaps TEAC leveraging the same tech for different market segments?

Yes, I like Mola Mola gear but Tambaqui as standalone DAC does not have an analog volume or analog inputs. Makua, on the other hand, is a fully blown preamp and offers much more than what I need.

HiFi Rose RS150 Streaming DAC has been receiving a lot of high praise too.
