Any M12 users please chime in.
I don't believe in DACs with volume control they have never worked for me, but the M12 is supposed to be a "proper" active preamp.

How good is the M12 preamp functionality compared to a high-end standalone preamp unit that costs around 10k $, is it comparable in performance?

Or should I go for a M1SE and a standalone preamp?

I did not have a $10K pre-amp to compare with, but the M12 is a silent pre-amp, and does not add color, nor shape sound (other than the DAC filters). These are the qualities I want in a pre-amp. The M12 is easily as good a pre-amp as the Wyred4Sound STP-SE (fully upgraded) was in my system.

Functionality wise, the M12 has 2x SPDIF inputs, USB input, built in ethernet streaming, and both a single end, and balanced analog input. This is enough to allow me listen to streaming, both digital, and analog video, and balanced input from my phono pre.

If you want a euphonic pre-amp, or need more analog inputs, you will need to look elsewhere.
