Lets keep it simple for starters.

1. budget, what is your maximum you're willing to spend, and what is the sweet spot you'd like to stay within?

2. what speakers do you have/what speakers do you currently plan to purchase.

3. what will you use it for (TV/PS3/blu-ray/etc) This will determine what inputs/outputs and codecs/processing it NEEDS to perform for you and what you can live without.

Once you've answered these questions your decision will be much easier as we can help you narrow down your selections to a few choices.

Current Sound: ODAC > SA Reference IC > Musical Paradise MP-301 6v6 tube amp> Tekton Designs 4.1 loudspeakers
