Availability: Available
Model: X-DAC v3
Manufacturer: MUSICAL FIDELITY

A nice little DAC that replaces the Tri-Vista 21 DAC. Originally sold for $1000 now it's a fraction of it's price. 

The X-DAC v3 upsamples to 24-bit/192kHz using the aforementioned Crystal chip. The Burr-Brown DAC is updated—it's the latest DSD1792/SRC4192/3 chipset.

Coaxial and optical (TosLink) digital inputs are provided, as is a coaxial digital loop out, which could be useful, say, for a CD-R recorder. The analog output impedance is a low 50 ohms, same as that of the X-Ray v3.

"As far as we know, [the X-DAC v3] is about the best-measuring DAC, regardless of price," Antony declared. Which is what he said about the Tri-Vista 21 last year.
