Cheap DAC

aiconnaiconn Registered UserPosts: 260
I picked up an Adcom GTP-600, and I'm moving on to step 2, finding a cheap DAC to connect my computer, and cable box. It needs to have USB and toslink inputs. The cable box does have RCA and coax digital outputs, but I've found using anything other than toslink introduces a nasty ground loop into the system. Does anyone have suggestions in the under $200 range?

    If you can spend a bit more I have a NAD DAC for sale in the Flea Market.

    I picked up the NAD D-1050 from @Mantis. I've tried everything but the USB input, and so far so good.
