O2 DAC+Amp or Schiit (either uber or non uber) stack?
(I know schiit costs more, but please ignore that)
The performance upgrade for both of these are really good from standard onboard. However, beyond that, it merely becomes preference on these. As both are solid state, they are more analytical than the Schiit Vali or any other tube amp. However, both are so good, that it comes down to preference. Schiit stack does look more aesthetically pleasing, and the Uber provides some fantastic extra connection ability. But, the O2/ ODAC does a similar, if not slightly nicer job in terms of raw performance, but the difference is so minute that you are unlikely to notice it.
You can mix and match. I have the Bifrost paired with the O2.
