Any dac recommended to use with this amp? Are there any on the market matching these specs and pricepoint?
It'll sound good with any dac. I'm not aware of any dacs that come close to the distortion measurements that this has. The closest I've seen are the high end topping dacs (THD+N <0.0005%). I haven't seen measurements of them, but SMSL dacs should be in the same ballpark as the topping ones.
Topping D50, D30 (USB), DX7, DX7S. The D10 isn't bad either at a really low price.
Benchmark DAC3 lol
Something like a TEAC UD-301, UD-501, UD-503, or NT-503 would work wonderfully too. Go balanced if you're going to pony up the monies for this. It makes a difference everywhere else, I expect it'd help here also.
UD-301 is a fantastic DAC
