What DAC should I buy for a very Hi-end Hi-Fi system?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My father is a classical audiophile for many years. So far he is so resistant to CAS. He has his very hi-end amp & speakers. I’d like to introduce him CAS. So I need to buy a DAC for him. Is M2Tech Young suitable for him in this case? Or any other idea? Price doesn’t matter. But I risk that if I buy an expensive one, and he still so resistant on lossless file. If I buy the M2Tech DAC for him, do I still need to buy a power supply for the DAC? He likes listening classical musics and he uses windows system. Thank you very much.

It would help to know what the rest of his system is (brands and model numbers) other than "high end audio" system.

DACs, like amps, speakers, phono cartridges and CD players all have their own "sound". So reading reviews of the M2Tech Young would be essential.

You could also read reviews of other similar priced DACs to get an idea of how the M2Tech Young stacks up.

As for the power supply, In my experience supplying a DAC with "clean" power does improve sound quality.

You may also want to pose your question on one of the "audio" forums like AufiogoN, Stereopile, audioKarma, etc.
