Micromega MyDAC Asynchronous USB Digital-to-Analog Converter (White)

Model: MICROMEGA MY DAC - WHITE   |    Mpn: 3760186790412   |    Ean: 3760186790412   |    PartNumber: 3760186790412   |   Asin: B009T9BS3G

Micromega MyDAC: A Miraculous New Digital Audio Solution Micromega's MyDac is a fantastic asynchronous 24/192 DAC at a price far less than its performance would suggest. Incredibly wide soundstaging, well-controlled bass, and crisp, articulate highs all flow forth from this little miracle. You won't believe how good your digital setup sounds after integrating the MyDac into your system. With both USB and TosLink inputs, virtually any digital source can be improved by the addition of the MyDac. "I dropped the MyDAC into my reference system and was shocked by how good it sounded for the price. The Micromega gives you some sonic attributes usually reserved for much more expensive DACs-qualities like air around instruments, a sense of three-dimensional space, and a laid-back sense of ease. Through the Micromega, instruments don't sound like flat cardboard cutouts; they are instead fully fleshed out three-dimensional images surrounded by a wonderful bloom. In these qualities, the Micromega's sound would not be out of place in a $2000 DAC. Timbres are remarkably smooth and free from grain. The bass is solid and tight, although the very lowest bass lacks ultimate authority." - Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound The MyDAC's USB input works in asynchronous mode up to 24bits/192kHz and accepts USB audio class 1.0 and USB audio class 2.0 modes without any driver implementation for Mac, and a custom Micromega driver for PC. The MyDAC also delivers measurably insignificant jitter in USB asynchronous mode thanks to two very low jitter master clocks (22.5792 MHz for multiple of 44.1kHz and 24.5760 MHz for multiple of 48kHz), with dedicated low noise power supplies, for the clearest, cleanest, smoothest sound imaginable from your digital files. The MyDAC uses no capacitors in either the audio signal path or the power supply path for an absolute minimum of electrical interference. The MyDAC is also the only DAC at this price point wit

HiFiMeDIY Sabre Tiny USB DAC Digital to Analog Audio Converter ES9023+PCM2706

Model: UAE TINY   |    Mpn: 1   |    Ean: 0028672061150   |    PartNumber: 1   |   Asin: B00CWVDPC0

The HiFimeDIY Sabre Tiny was developed by DIY (do it yourself} enthusiasts in the purpose of making a really good but cheap dac that could compete against regular commercial DAC's costing many times as much. It utilises a DAC chip from ESS Technology, whose DAC chips is highly regarded. The ES9023 chip is their simplest DAC chip which keeps many of the features of their bigger brothers at a minimal cost. We made this new familiy member even smaller and cheaper What is different from the slightly bigger brother? - It uses the PCM2706 USB receiver chip in place of Tenor TE7022, which limits it to max 48Khz/16bit inputs - 12Mhz osc instead of a crystal used in uae23. - No optical output - Might work on more devices (Android etc.) - Volume level can not be controlled by system volume/volume hotkeys What is the same? - Sabre ES9023 chip - 2.2Vrms output Which one should i get? The new Uae Tiny is almost as good at a lower price. If you don't mind paying the additional dollars, go for the uae23 version (Hifimediy Sabre DAC). If you want to save a few bucks and don't need 96/24 this newcomer should be a good option. Highlights about Sabre ES9023 dac chip: - The sound go straight out of the DAC chip and into your headphones or amplifier. It is not needed that the sound signal go through a capacitor to remove a DC voltage, there is no DC voltage to remove! This omits the need of a coloring cap which adds costs and reduces sound quality. - Jitter Eliminator! The ES9023 utilised patented HyperstreamTM architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator. - 112db DNR USB (receiver) PCM2706: - Accepts up to 48Khz/16bit Output levels: Open 2.2Vrms 4.7Kohm 2.1Vrms 1.8Kohm 1.9Vrms 510ohm 1.5Vrms 330ohm 1.3Vrms 30ohm 1Vrms Note: Normally amplifier inputs are from 10K to 100K ohm. Normal headphones are from 32 ohm to 250ohm.
