@adifferentpaul and @rcf051. I previously had the SGCD in my system that I sold when I upgraded to the BHK preamp and DSD Sr. I enjoyed listening to it.
The one that TMR has on their site has a misaligned top and bottom chassis plate that I find visually disturbing.
You might also consider a $399 Schiit Jotunheim. It’s the same size as the Bifrost. Or you can add a USB only DAC card for $100-$200 USB. The Modius is also the same footprint and balanced out. Paired with the Jot you’re looking at less than $700 delivered. A bonus for the Jot and Bifrost is a 5 year warranty. Modius is 2.
Lucky young lady to have such a nice Dad!
Look into the Nuprime DAC-10 which is a comibination DAC and preamp in a half size chassis and is designed to work with their Class D amps. I ran the combination of the DAC-10 and the ST-10 for several years in a secondary system and enjoyed it with no quirks or issues. Contact Aamir at Summit HiFi, who is also the Eversolo distributor, and see if you can work out a better price. It just recently went up from $1499. SE and XLR outputs in addition to digital and two analog inputs.
