I figure this is safe to ask here since the product is a legacy. I love my Bottlehead DAC and BottleBat but I have reached the point where everything but it has been upgraded. While I am not really ready to change, it is time to start thinking about it. Has anyone found a DAC they like better than their Bottlehead (at a reasonable price - no $100K stacks of gear) ? DSD is not an issue - I still listen to almost 44.1 exclusively.
