Hi Ya'll. I wanted to get your feedback on the best stand-alone USB DAC. Most of the DACs I've seen on Massdrop are either Amp/DAC combos or made to be portable units. I personally use a separate Amp & DAC as I don't want more flexibility with my sound & features, and do not need portability with this particular setup. The DAC itself is a portable FIIO Alpen 2-E17k Amp/DAC which is a great all-round portable unit but not a top-performer from a pure DAC perspective for my desktop setup.
Does anyone have any experience with the US made Schiit Audio DACs? I am using a Schiit Audio Magni 2 for my Oppo PM-3's and it sounds absolutely incredible. I would be interested in knowing your experience with Schiit Audio DACs (and in general) and whether Massdrop can get them on board. Thanks!

Do you know why? Is it a matter of them being too successful without this marketing channel? Are they too small to produce additional volume? Are they little grinches?

Lol if you put a seller like massdrop or Amazon in the mix they need to make money too so the price goes up
If they put it on massdrop for massdrop to make money they mould have to raise the price then lower it back down by people joining the drop
Just check schiit on Amazon the price is higher
Schiit sells direct because they can sell cheap as possible to you and still make decent money to run the company

That makes sense. This channel clearly works best for wholesale models where companies are already providing their products to wholesalers for 1/2 the MSRP. Schiit is direct, indeed - good point. I want!
