Nice thanks for that.
My system is modest at best and not highly revealing so i feel i can get by with the DL iii.
My CDP is just a Tascam CD-401mkii but it is an excellent transport.

Yes! Never owned but did auditioned one some time ago for a second system I was trying to throw together. At the time it’s used market value was almost double what they are being sold for today. Excellent build quality but I felt it sounded too lean and lacked bass. Ended up with a Xindak DAC-8 which I felt sounded way better. Was also cheaper


I also own a Xindak DAC 8. Easily my favourite of all the dacs I have owned

Well... got the DL III hooked up and it is surprisingly good.
It betters the Moon 100D i had a while back for about the same money.
The Moon could only sample my cds at 44.1 where the DL is switchable upsampling to 96 or 192.
I also had the Dac Magic and the DL is much better than that as well.
Im very satisfied with this unit as it sounds great with my redbook cds and also my smartphone downloaded files.
Its very well constructed and very affordable.
