I’m slowly looking to upgrade my current setup, and I was wondering wich way to go...
I play music from my mac mini server 90% of the time and spin a record on my SL1200 once in a while. Current set up is Linn 5103+5105 driving a pair of Totem Model 1 Signature. It sounds real good, but since I mostly play digital music, using a 20+ year old DAC feels weird. (The mac mini is plugged in the 5103 through toslink).
Should I just get a new separate DAC?
Or maybe try a whole new system?
I wanna keep the Totem, but I could sell the Linn combo to finance a new system.
Budget would be under 1000 for a DAC or 3000 for a new setup.
I don’t really want to add a new box (DAC). I read good things about the Moon 240i, but it is less than half the power of the 5105. Somebody is also selling a Classé Sigma 2200i for 3K right now...
Any suggestions/opinions?!
Add a DAC?! New Integrated?! Don’t do a thing since it already sounds good?!
