Topic: Headphone DAC superior to those in UFX II? How much would that cost?
Hi, title says it: I'm interested in how much I would need to pay for a DAC (using cost as a rough proxy for quality) in order to make it worth having one in addition to the RME Fireface UFX II I use to record my piano?
By my very rough estimates, if the UFX has 4 high-quality DACs and costs £1600, then assuming they are a significant contributor to overall cost, each DAC could be 'worth' no more than £400. I'm sure it is more complex than this, but would this mean that if I paid £500 for a dedicated DAC (for high-res music listening on a good system), I would be getting DAC conversion of better quality?
