DAC to pair with MF X-Rayv8

Postby ganiman » Sat Jul 28, 2018 12:05 pm

I’m seeking advice on what would be a good DAC to pair with my MF X-Rayv8. The X-Ray is also connected to a MF X-10v3. My amplifier is a Moon 250i. My speakers are Kef LS50. I’m very satisfied with the sound especially with female vocals. It creates an excellent soundstage (depth and breast). There is clear separation and air between Instruments and vocals. The sound leans to the warm side by virtue of the X-10 which I like. However, for male vocals they do not sound as real as compared to female voice. If you close your eyes you would not imagine that they are in your listening room. It still sounds fine but your cognizant that its a recording. Is there a DAC that can bring that realism for male vocals? Another limitation is that my budget is only up to 80K.
