WTB: Standalone DAC with digital coaxial input

Looking for a standalone DAC that features a digital coaxial input. Will also need a digital coax cable.

Just purchased a transport and want to try out the separate transport and DAC approach.

Lemme know what old DACs you got sitting around. Thanks in advance.

    Yes, I recently purchased one with a USB input only.

    I'm not sure how this is relevant to my WTB request.

    Even if it did, can you really ever have too many DACs? :)

    You're the first person that mentioned "Mp3's" in this thread, and I'm not sure why.

    I'll re-quote myself for you where I mentioned in my original post that I just purchased a transport.

    But yeah, by all means come into a closed/ended WTB thread and make a disparaging remark about music formats to collect those LOLs. Very mature.

    Heck, even I've got two of them and I barely do digital (and I understand the formats and implications thereof even less).

    Drew reach down in between your cheeks and pull those shorts out. They're cutting off circulation to your brain.

    1. I could care less about lol's, likes, insightful's or any of that stuff.

    2. Oooo you have a transport so what you can burn mp3's to disc...

    3. My god man lighten up life is too short to carry around all that anger

    4. Maybe you need a new strain because the one you have is not working for you.

    5. Maybe try tequila

    6. My reading comprehension skills are pretty good i seen the transport comment in the beginning.
