What do people find works best with the THX 789?
I’m aware of the Drop SDAC balanced and SMSL SU-8 and was initially keen on getting the SU-8 until I read some negative reviews of it on this forum and similarly for the SDAC. There is also the ENOG 2 Pro but I really don’t like its I/O design as I want to run the amp and DAC as a stack on my desk.
I also lightly looked into the Arist R2R, however, the fact that it is unbalanced is slightly offputting and (not recommended by Z). What do you guys think of this? Ideally, I’d love an RME ADI-2 but I cant quite afford one yet (hopefully in due course).
FYI - I currently run a Schiit Modi original which needs to become a paperweight as Schiit have not maintained their Windows driver support thus constantly has USB issues.
Keen to hear your thoughts, thanks in advance.
