DAC that compete with EMM M3 and playback design m6

I like the sound of AMR cd 77.1 but these are far and few available. What I have heard on line with both Meitner M3 and Playback design m6/8 is a similar sound. Very open analog sounding. 

playback designs is just $$$ way out of reach. The Meitner is closer but at around 7k is just not in the cards. Looking for recommendations of similar sound quality without spending an arm and leg. I currently own a Cary 306/200 cd player and have enjoyed it and have thought about looking for a Cary 306 professional model


You can get one of these for $4900 with a trade in.  30% off retail.  They sound amazing, and as you described.  PerfectWave SACD Transport – PS Audio

The T+A200 dac is better then both and less monies .

and has a excellent preamp if you chose to use it, galvanic isolated throughout .

that is my gift to myself after the holidays .I have heard pretty much everything out 

there , and at $7200 Retail myself andmany others find it betters the competition 

at 2x the cost it is that good ,and has HQ player built in ,which is built into the back 

end of Roon ,plus many other options.
