The DacMagic Plus got some bad reviews for tonal distortion (my main objective is absolutely neutral audio reproduction), the Rega DAC seems overly complicated, and I'm suspicious of the VDAC II, given the low price point compared to It has a SPDIF output that can be connected to a reference quality DAC like the Arcam FMJ D33.
