Just got a new DAC in the mail.
« on: 18 May 2014, 11:40 pm »
So, I was looking for USB DAC's and kinda had my mind set on what chip I wanted.  The Burr-Brown PCM by TI seemed like it would fit my tastes.

So DAC shopping I went.. Stumbled on a small cheap "dac destroyer" by HotAudio.  Man, I wasn't expecting the sound to improve much but it has.  I originally sold my main PC that had a pretty good turtle beach sound card in it. Since moving, I built a new rig and was using onboard sound, sure it was a step up from my laptop but now I know just how bad it was.  This DAC is much better then my IPOD or IPHONE. 

The guy hand solders them in Canada... I took it apart to admire his handwork, so clean and beautiful.  I have nothing bad to say about this product.

Best 29 bucks I ever spent.  Using the RCA interconnects provided by Seth, the one.3 sounds like it should.   :wink:

Probably consider getting a Raspberry Pi for serving up the MP3's and IP radio in the future.
