    Looking to buy a DAC and or Music Server to run off a NAS and Tidal. Would like usb,toslink, and ethernet inputs w/analog output. Would like DSD.

    I am ok with a single box item. Want to be under $500 if possible. I dont listen to a lot of digital files or streaming so dont want to go crazy w/pricing here. Just something that works. Used is fine.

    TIA

    A little more info. I have a HRT Streamer II holding me over. It sounds a bit harsh. I recently sold my PS Audio Directstream Dac Jr.so that kind of spoiled me. I sold it due to lack of use and needed some cash for other stuff etc. So am really just looking for a more warm sounding DAC than the HRT.
    Any suggestions??

    I have a great DAC with USB reclocker / adapter here:

    Great sounding DAC. With the USB reclocker / adapter you can connect the system to a computer to playback your digital files.

    After trying several DACs in my system, I ended up using this one for several years until I upgraded to the McIntosh D100. The ESS Sabre chipset is warm, detailed and precise. Strangely enough, I found that the D100 has an ESS Sabre chipset as well so the Yulong compares well.

    If you are interested, let's talk. I have cables and maybe we can work a package deal. I'd really like to see this go to a good home as it is an excellent DAC.

    Good luck with your search!
