What DAC do you guys use with your aTV?
What's your budget?
I like my Arcam rDAC
About £200 maximum. I was thinking about a Cambridge Audio DACmagic, but I have seen a few really cheep DAC's on Ebay and Amazon for under £30 and wondered how good they were?
Have a look at Beresford DAC's
superb service and best bang for the buck!
I'd be surprised (albeit pleasantly) if the £20 DACs on eBay are significantly better than what's in the aTV already.
I've also heard (well, read in online fora) good things about Beresford DACs but I've never used one.
These cheap DAC's will just be a waste of money. They should work fine, in and of itself, there's nothing "wrong" with them, but they won't do anything more than the existing DAC that the Apple TV already has... so they'll be redundant. Spend a bit more on a proper DAC and you should get an actual upgrade to your sound quality.
