    Korg MR2
    Tascam DA-3000
    Tascam DV-RA1000HD
    IZ Technology Radar 6
    Sound Devices
    Genex AD8 and GX9000/9024
    Bruce,
    After I purchased Lampi dsd dac I tought about Korg MR2 as relatively inexpensvie solution for ripping my vinyls to dsd.
    Which of converters you mentionned has the best P/SQ ratio in your opinion?
    Aurender W20->Audio Aero La Fontaine/ Lampizator Big 7 -> Ayon Crossfire III -> Avantgarde Acoustic Duo Mezzo XD
    Analog : Transrotor Fat Bob S with SME 5 , Shelter Harmony , Groove +SRX mk2

    Forget the Korg MR2 and get the Tascam DA-3000. It's a great converter that records to SD cards up to DSD128fs. The best part about it is that it has digital in/out, so that if you want in the future, you can purchase a high-end A/D converter. But I doubt you would want to after you hear what the Tascam can do on its own. The DAC section leaves a lot to be desired, but you have the Lampi to take care of that end. All for <$1k USD. It's a steal.....
