Why do you always tempt me Aura? I would love to get the D2000 woodied along with the SR225, but I bought the D2000 for office use during my internship, seeing that starts in two weeks I don't think it'll work out.

Just tempted at this point.

I really want a decent source that's going to last me a year or two and I already so love my shures and RS1's, that I'll most likely take the source improvement option and pick up a DAC like I've been planning.

I'm not loaded BTW.

I do contract software/web interface work, help a family member at his tire business and also work daily with a certain 'figure' within the democratic party.

The majority of this upcoming purchase is coming from Bush's stimulus check (as it's called); I'm going to drop a couple/three hundred of my own along with it though ...

Re: DACS

I'm seriously considering a Musiland MD-10:

...

or, possibly...

A mhdt Constantine+ USB DAC:

...

They've both received really good reviews around the intrawebz.

I'm still deliberating on both.

While also deliberating on some other USB DAC interfaces that have recording abilities as well (like the EMU 0404 type).

Actually, I'm deliberating on a whole bunch of possible purchases.

Not an NOS DAC. Here's some reading on it: http://pacificvalve.us/MusilandMD10.html.

Hmmm.....

I got my D2000's a few days ago and i LOVE them. I'm not going to bother with a review because i can only compare to cheap Sennheiser 212Pro headphones, and i'm no audiophile. Coming from those, these D2k's sound like im in the music, rather than 2 speakers on my ears. The music isn't as jumbled as it is with cheap headphones. You can hear every little detail. The transition from left to right is great too (some songs i have certain sounds go back and forth between left and right). I can't wait to get an amp and dac though, because i can tell there is still room for improvement (obviously) even though they sound great. They are super comfortable as well.

I'd go with an Opus or Buffalo DAC first. I'm very, very tempted to go all out and get a Buffalo + IVY and squeeze it all in my upcoming Millet Max build. It's going to be a bit more than $300 more than I was planning though...

For sure I'll be building a Millet Max with Blackgates and Vit-Q's. I'll be using an OptiVol as an upgrade to the blue velvet pot normally used and will likely be getting a TPA Darwin Source Selector. Then I'll be adding a USB DAC for sure. I've considered using an Alien DAC, or getting one of TPA's Opus USB DAC boards. If I go with the Opus I can use it as a stand-alone DAC for now and then later add a Buffalo for even better performance, or I could just get the Buffalo now and do it all at once, which will likely be easier...
