I'd rather ignore price in discussing dacs beyond a certain price level (say, 2k usd). They're all cost-no-object things imo. I can't think of any specific products that exceed yggy2 in every major criterion (information amount, accurate-ish presentation, and timber) beside personal sonic tastes, no matter how much $. Some are rarely in the same league -- would put convert-2 and dave (maybe a little behind) into this league. But nothing to date assured me to believe the existence of performance-wise "higher" leagues. Secretly have some fantasy on bricasti (trying to find some chance to hear it) though. Can't say much about msb or nagra because of unfamiliar configurations when I auditioned a while ago. But clearly not motivated to hear again. Acceptable at best.
