    USB to SPDIF Converter - D10 vs others

    I'd like to get a USB to COAX SPDIF converter for my new active monitor setup. A Topping D10 seems to be the cheapest option, with the Matrix Audio X-SPDIF 2 being much more expensive, though measuring better as well. Would you consider improvement found with the Matrix Audio audible?
