First post!

I recently bought a teensy 3.2 with the intention to build a modal synth. I'm pretty excited about it, but I'm unsure how to choose a suitable DAC/codec for the output. Most examples use the audio board, which is great and I might go that route. However, I only want a single line-level output, so I figure it would make more sense to just get a good 16-bit DAC/codec instead. When I try to research this I'm instantly overwhelmed and confused by the plethora of options. I'm not an audiophile, but I do want 16-bit instead of 12-bit.

So does anyone have any suggestions of a DAC or codec on a DIP IC? Presumably ones that works with the I2C library.
