    Grace Audio M903 vs. Benchmark DAC 1 HDR

    Has anyone uses or auditioned these two units? Which is a better DAC?

    Grace vs. Benchmark

    No idea, yet, but unlike the DAC 1 HDR, the M903 supports rates higher than 24/96. I've had great results with the Halide Design S/PDIF bridge into my legacy DAC, but like the DAC 1 HDR, it only supports rates up to 24/96. Seeing as the Grace unit, like the Halide bridge, uses Gordon Rankin's Streamlength asynchronous USB code, I'm confident that the sound quality will be excellent. I'm definitely leaning towards replacing my current DAC with the M903.
