Been going through the Gieseler DAC threads to dig up owners’ reviews & impressions over the past 2 few years. Together, they provided an impressive picture of how well Clay has made his DACs and has lead me to consider purchase the upcoming Groß DAC with balanced outputs.

I bought recently eBay $90 each two ZL T5 Music Audio Decoding Player . This player is good alternative to expensive DAC units. It has everything I need and does job well. I connected my CD player to line in of the unit and line out to my amplifier. So that I have many options of music source: CD player, USB flash or portable USB HD, computer and so on.
My favorite is the USB flash drive. The unit supports 32GB flash drive. It is hundreds tracks of any audio codecs. The player remember last track even when power off. What is interesting is one player supports a micro SD card, another does not but it is not big issue.

Very good player, excellent review.
Being Used as DAC(Audio/Video) only.
Maybe a bit too big for a DAC, and waste of its Blueray and CD player capabilities.
Therefore try to simplify things.
Good day, I am new to DAC and I see here in SNA details on Speakers brands, details and price in every bracket. Just thinking to have list of DAC quality DAC. If in case we have the list already please point me.
I am not sure does people spend more than 5000$ on DAC!
To my knowledge :
Gieseler(great Australia DAC)
Atleast , it will give some pointers to the beginner(like me) in this community, to decide what is best when planning a DAC new/used. As we have lot of brands .
