XA9000ES or Better Quality for a Streaming

What DAC is recommended in order to get good quality streams from as Logitech Duet? I wish to get equal or better quality to my XA9000ES player. All files are ripped at CD lossless or better. I would like to stay around $1000 or less.
Hey Patrick,

No problem at all. I'm using a Transporter as a source in the Living Room, and I compared the Transporter DAC, the Duet DAC, the Benchmark DAC, and the Bel Canto DAC3.

Not surprising I'm sure, but the best one was the Bel Canto, then in descending order was the Benchmark, Transporter, and Duet.

When I bought my Benchmark, I also went by the reviews and benchmark offered me a 30 day return policy, so give them a call.
I have an adcom gfp-750 I use in passive mode for my preamp. Do you feel the DAC1 pre section is as good or would you recommend still using the adcom?
Great preamp, but I can't say that I've heard it myself. The DAC1 has a passive preamp, which is pretty good, but it doesn't have any switching abilty, and if that is something that you need, then I would recommend the Benchmark DAC1-Preamp. It just won a Golden Ear Award for 2009 in The Absolute Sound this month. You could probably get one one of those used here within your budget.
