This is a table showing the best audio DACs and the worst based on its measured distortion and noise which is expressed as "SINAD" (signal above power of distortion and noise). It is the average of the two channels tested.

Please don't look at this graph too accurately. Small differences are not material and results vary slightly from test to test. Generally look to see what bucket the DAC falls in (color coded in the chart for easy reference: blue = best; red = worst).
