For two channels for $2000, I would suggest a used Prism or the higher end
Lavry units. Weiss gear turns up used in that range as well.

What is your definition of *Best Sound?*.

If you say most accurate, then we at least have a fixed standard to judge
by.

If you say "what sounds good to me", you're expecting us all to become
mind-readers.

I'm biased - having worked with them.

I'll bet the Prism unit is the most *accurate*. A fine tradition of quality sound
engineering in that company ( not to denigrate the others of course ) based on Neve
experience of digital audio - the originators of the first digital desks - and you
don't get a much better grounding than that !

Warm, Accurate but a little inflated. Just to give you am example if you ever
used an Ensoniq Sampler
(ASR 10, ASR 88) but better. Hopes this helps you help me??

Thanks

Oh, they don't make converters that bad any more. Get a decent
converter and some other box to make it sould warm, inflated, and like
an Ensoniq sampler.

Based on my very limited experience having heard only the Workstation
item some years ago, I'm pointing my thumb up. Damn sure worth a
listen.
