I just ordered the Topping D50 2-channel DAC from Amazon, it’s getting major notice as a top sound quality DAC as very reasonable price. And it does DSD natively.

I plan on routing my 2-channel to this from the music server computer, leaving the Oppo for multi-Chan.

Price is said to be $249.99, and I saw it listed for $199.00 with free shipping / no tax, just had to grab it at that low price.

Look at reviews on Amazon.

When you get the D50, be sure to download and give a listen to the new DSD 512 Stereo sampler "5 Tracks in DSD 512".
It will give the DSD 512 features of the Topping a test.

Topping D50 is a very smooth DAC!! Sounds sharp where it should, and DSD took a step up in SQ for me.

I have not yet checked out the different settings. It might even improve some more.

$199.99 free shipping no tax charged. How did I get away with that on Amazon US?
