    I love the built in DAC of my Lumin X1. Plus I saved $6K by not having to buy a power cable, and interconnect cables to it. :)

    PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII can be had for around 1200 bucks. It can also be upgraded to DirectStream. I love mine...

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    Okay so went with a NAD C510 found a very good deal on it. As soon I get home will start testing.
    World of Sound in Marin County nice store and good service no affiliation.

    It has been a nice day. Enjoy the drive to the coast with my kid, we had a nice pizza I got a good IPA some shopping around, like I mentioned nice farmer market I could not get any of the fresh seafood as I have no idea how long will be out.

    Got some good gear home. Now the kid is taking a nap so time for a smoke.

    Cheers

    The Linns are decent but a good upgrade will definitely have you hearing more. Especially from your source.
    Congrats!

    That's where I bought my NAD integrated back in 2012. And then had pizza at the same place you did right around the corner, Pizza Antica.
