Hi guys, I just picked up one of these DACs today used for a couple bucks. This thread is one of the deciding factors to me dropping the cash for it.
Upon the first few listens, I do like the sound. I had two previous 'main' analog audio sources... A marantz cd5003 and an maudio audiophile192 pci card in a tiny passive computer case. I'm using the SPDIF output from the audiophile192 to run the DAC. (FLAC on a NAS + foobar2000 + ASIO plugin + maudio spdif out)
My initial impression is that I like the adcom better than the onboard AKM dac on the audiophile192, which I liked better than the Cirrus Logic set in the marantz.
But, I can tell that this is a little conjested (much like the sound blaster Xfi before opamp and power cap swaps)
I'm going to be picking up these BurrBrown ops and the caps. Gotta say that I'm excited to get working on it.
