Pulled the trigger on the ERC3 from Emotiva. If I am not totally impressed, then back it goes.

Be interested to hear your thoughts on it.

I had the XDA-1 a couple years back, and it was actually pretty good.

Kobee,

 To do over again, I would be tempted to just get the dac, as it has inputs that can be used with computers. Swing and a miss. I am still anxious to get this thing. And I have even considered using my old CD players dac for just such a purpose. I have always really liked the sound that comes from it's analog output.

Got the Emotiva ERC3 player today. Haven't much listening yet. What I have noticed right away is that I am hearing a separation of background details that were previously all mixed up. I can pick out small details in the background that make the music even more interesting. More to follow.

That's good to hear!

I'm not surprised to hear it sounds good. I believe it uses the same DAC chip as the 2000 dollar Cambridge Audio 840C, which is no slouch.

One thing that is easy to appreciate right off is the build quality. Even the remote is solid aluminum, and makes easy sense to use. If it turns out to sound as good as it's built, then it is a winner for sure.
