Some DACs I am Considering-Any thoughts?


Soekris 2541                $1.1

Doge 7                         $1.2

Mhdt Pagoda               $1.4

Denafrips Pontus         $1.8

Audio Mirror SE           $2.5

Holo Audio Spring 2    $2.7

Audio Note 4.1 Kit       $3.6

Lampizator Amber 3    $3.8

Anyone who can speak from experience  about comparisons
between any two these?

I like the use of a tube and I like the R2R style of build.

Prefer to stay under $2.5 but might be swayed.

Thanks in advance for sharing.

(Some of these prices are certainly not correct)

Anyone that doesn't put the Denafrips #1 has not heard the Denafrips. It is head and shoulders above anything I have heard.
I had my AM Tubadour upgraded to the SE after owning it for the better part of a year. Vlad really is great to work with! The DAC is phenomenal. 
I have a Moon 280D with MiND 2.  I am very pleased with the DAC.

My digital journey started with a Node 2i and then I used the DAC 1 Module in my McIntosh Preamp.

My listening habits are eclectic - I may listen to Bob Marley and then put on Metallica follow-up with Paul Simon, Black Sabbath and Peter Gabriel.  Or I may just play Spyro Gyro and chill. 

The Moon has exceeded my expectations in everyway including the ease of use of the MiND 2.  So impressed with the Moon DAC I will consider other Moon components if I decide to upgrade my system.
