Well i already had a thread, but it got out of hand cause i didnīt specify to well what i wanted.
But now as i have gotten an Amp (Objective2), i can just pinpoint to the DAC.

I have asked around for DAC, and as i am not too knowledgeble about it, i put my trust in what others now.

I have been given a recommendation: Musical Fidelity M1 DAC II

I donīt know if itīs overkill, or if itīs worth the cost. So i hope you can help me out on this.

I want a high end DAC that i can use with anything. I donīt want it just for Headphones (even though i only use that currently).
And i want to be able to use it for anything, so only USB isnīt going to cut it. And i donīt really like to use USB interface with Audio stuff.

So Toslink and Coaxial is the way to go i think, if there isnīt any limitations about them of course.

Oh, and if itīs necessary, i currently got a motherboard soundcard, and a real soundcard, though very cheap (Creative X-Fi PCI-E), and both of them add noise that is very noticable if i increase the volume past 2 a clock on my O2.

If you need more information, or if i wasnīt to informative please tell!

Many Thanks

Don't you already have a high end DAC? Just use the line out from that to drive the O2. Edit: sorry misread, for some reason I thought you had a better sound card already.
