Hi Everyone, I intend on getting the THX 789 Amp. I currently have 2 Cans, HD800s and LCD X and running them through an Oppo Ha-1 Dac/Amp. I'm having trouble deciding from RME ADI-2, SMSL VMV D1 and Topping D90 (MQA) to go with the THX 789.
Grateful if you could help me out.
Thanks in advance.
Topping D90 is the best out of those 3 DACs. The only other DAC that is close in preformance is the Denafrips line-up, which would be worth checking out.
In terms of amp, you might want to take a look at the Topping A90 as well which will be coming out shortly, price around $500, and will surely make a great paring with the D90.
If you are interested in a DAC/Amp combo, I also think the Flux Lab FCN-10 is highly compelling, especially considering that it has a network streamer built in(which is a huge plus for me).
Best of luck!
Interestingly, I was just going to plug the Ares DAC, and saw benmar’s post, I second it.
I'd be wary of Topping amps with planar magnetic headphones. they tend to get to 20 ohm out on the balanced outs, which means 60 ohms would be the lowest ohm cans I'd want to pair with it.
