You've listed some quality D/A, however I would be remiss in not mentioning the Genex GXD8; they seem to excel in every listening test I've been involved in. However, the best thing for you to do is take a listen to some D/A you plan to purchase.

Good luck!

Those are all good choices. I think the Lavry blue is the best of the three.  If you had a big bundle of cash burning a hole in your pocket, you should hear the Lavry gold DAC 924. WOW!

We have the Lavry blue and Benchmark at the studio and the Benchmark mainly gets used as the occasional headphone or maybe a loose A/B comparison DAC. It's very good, especially at the price point, but the Lavry is better. I'll probably end up selling the Benchmark because I just don't use it enough.
