I am looking for some affordable DA for monitoring. I have an MBOX Pro at home, and I want something a bit better for monitoring. At this point I'm looking at the following which are all in the $850-1100.00 price range:
I'm leaning toward the benchmark, but I'm willing to be swayed. A few of the above have usb or firewire add ons, but I won't need them. If I am working the Pro Tools I'll be taking the spdif output and any other core audio app I'll just take the optical output on my Mac Book Pro. So hit me with your opinions please.
