    Using my current computer via USB to DAC would not be an option as it is at least 20 feet away from the audio rack. The maximum recommended USB cable length is 15ft.

    Like with anything, you can always cut corners and get the cost down, but in doing so, you will cut performance. The X260.8/XP22 outperform the INT250 by a fair margin. I think as good as the INT250 is, the separates just bring much more to the...

    Big plus 1. I totally agree. There certainly could be times, depending on speakers, some would prefer the Accuphase, but for me the Luxman has been stellar on everything Iíve paired with it.
