Great piece of kit

My new OC monster rig only had limited space due to water cooled video cards. OC fitted a Zonar half sized sound card and it sounded like crap. I wanted the Zonar DX2 but it would not fit. They suggested this USB DAC unit hooked up to my Logitech Z550. Never tried a DAC before so just removed cheapy sound card and plugged this puppy in. Man what a stonking piece of kit. Worked straight out of the box and comes with great software to tweak it.

I now effectively have a 2nd pre amp and it sounds fantastic. Quick effective no fuss way for great sound and lust plugs into a spare USB port.
