Noticed a duplicated line:
Budget DAC Review: Micca OriGen+ USB DAC
Budget DAC Review: Micca OriGen+ USB DAC

Thanks for the list, lots of good stuff here that's pretty easy to miss otherwise.

Is it possible to offer a DAC for measurement? I came here and read the poor reviews of my Schiit Bifrost Multibit and Modi Uber but l always felt my Parasound ZDAC v2 was not so bad. I'd be happy to send it to you if you would care to measure it. My apologies if it is wrong to post here, I am new to the site and this is my first post.

@amirm, in many reviews, you mention a "recommended" devices list, but I haven't found the beast. Would it be possible to sub-sort the master index to show the devices you recommend?

Yes, I plan to do that. I have been procrastinating because I didn't want to deal with "why is this recommended and that isn't" type of questions. :)

I wouldn't want to take on that subjective task.

For that price it would be Topping DX3Pro. However, I have ordered the Monoprice portable THX based dac amp combo that is supposed to come this week. That may become my new favorite depending on how it performs.

I think the Topping DX3Pro is still "coming soon" and does not exist yet.
