DAC recommendations

Jun 12, 2019
Brisbane, Australia
Hi - I'm a long term reader of this forum, but signed up to ask a question (and hopefully contribute)! I recently sold my RME ADI-2 DAC to help fund a preamp purchase - I was using the DAC as a preamp, but I also like to use reel to reel so it wasn't ideal (and I never use headphones or any of the fancy options it had). I'd like to buy a simple DAC with similar sound profile/measurements. What would you recommend up to around $400-$500? Many thanks for any advice you might be able to give.

PS: I only need USB input (from my Mac using Roon)
