    Good luck in your quest.

    I have compared the X1 with other DACs costing 2 to 3 times more. The Lumin X1 does very well.

    Sure, at my home MSB and Esoteric. At dealer, the same MSB and a Lampi. The MSB bested the X1 but it was not a night a day difference and it was much more expensive.

    Ultimately, I decided to buy the X1 based on sound, ease to setup and use, looks, support and cost. Yes, one can do better but it would cost a heck of a lot more.

    MSB Premier, Lampi Pacific, Esoteric K-05, Lumin S1 and X1. My favorites of that group were the MSB Premier and Lumin X1.
