    I currently have the Lynx L22 which has great converters compared to your standard audio interface card (at least the ones I've heard). I am looking to get an external DA converter though. My question is, would the Lucid DA9624 be a viable upgrade from the lynx converters or would it be a waste of money considering the the lynx converters are decent? Should I hold out for something that will make a larger difference? I know that I should try and listen for myself but any experiences on this would be helpful.

    I personally would hold out, but you can always try some out and see if it makes enough of a difference to justify it. When I 'm considering buying a new piece of gear, I never under buy. I over buy knowing that i'm going to grow into it eventually. This way you don't out grow the piece of gear too soon. In the long run, it's cheaper to buy 1 great piece then it is to buy 1 ok piece and then buy 1 better piece, and then one great piece.
