Is there any DAC/Jitter-reduction solution out there for under or around $1K that is the considered the best bang-for-the-buck audiophile sound? I'm definitely one of those guys who can hear differences between transports and resolution-upconversion settings on the DTI PRO, so you don't need to convince me about the subtleties of audiophile sound.

thanks!

David,

If you want ti absolutely minimize jitter, consider something like the Benchmark USB DAC, it will cut jitter to almost non existent.
