Looking for New DAC

So story short my TEAC UD-301 pass out. Main board got rusted my best guess humidity got into it. Not sure why the area here is not that humid and all other components are fine after a check (amp, pre and player). All of this is in the output section of the DAC. I contacted TEAC about buying a new main board. No reply so far.

I am considering getting the Marantz HD-DAC1 or Musical Fidelity MX DAC. Any comments?

I will still try to repair the 301 and I will find the board.

    I wish I still had some Intenso in stock as it'd be a knock out winner over the HD-DAC1 which is my second favorite three figure DAC. I do have a Blue Diamond CD Player priced well below MSRP that could be your full digital solution, but still about twice your budget.

    I haven't announced it publicly, but my partnership with North Star is coming to a close. Unlike Dayens, NSD has been flawless and I truly wish I didn't have to take this route. If you can find some of their DAC's, they are particularly difficult to beat in the more budget-friendly arena.

    That totally blows! I wish I had room for an upgrade NS is the shciznit!

    Agree with Skip! I have the Intenso which is in the main rig, and I have an AMP-1 which has I believe has the same DAC, but I needed an integrated for the office rig.

    I'm not sure that is rust in the photos, but possibly just electrical circuit damage.

    That's a bummer to hear that Skip. They had good stuff from what I heard. Are you on the hunt for something new in that price point, or possibly leaning on Norma for the digital front moving forward?

    Hi

    Thanks for the advice. Have not updated yet. Work has been very busy and add jury duty to the mix. Probably will go with the Marantz like the headphone amp feature will go well with My HD650.

    Get the Excelsio in the FM. It will trounce anything under four figures and is a steal at the price.

    Get the Lumin X1, which is a file player and DAC. I have the S1, and will soon be upgrading to the X1. However, I recently upgraded the S1 power supply to the X1 power supply, and have been so happy I am in no rush to get the X1, but eventually I will.

    A big benefit of the integrated DAC in the Lumin is you do not need to buy a DAC power cord, and interconnect cables. That saves at least $6K right there over having an external DAC.

    Okay so I kind of taken a different route on this one. I just pulled the trigger on the Schiit Jotunheim with no DAC. I have been using the DAC on the SA8005 and has been working great and I will like to able to better power my headphones. (650, Meze Noir and Marshall's)

    https://www.schiit.com/products/jotunheim

    I will still be looking for a separate DAC in the future, maybe one with balance outputs.

    Once it's get here I will start another thread on the Headphone section.
