This DAC looks good and is quite sturdy. It is a great pity that it does not come with a power supply and has to be powered from the USB socket. Unfortunately it only worked for 5 hours. I was listening to my CD player when I heard a click, then silence. Tried both optical and digital phono inputs, but no output - power was ok as led was alight.Had to take it to my local store for a refund.
Had the use of this item from a friend (away on hols) what a big difference to my cds transferred to the laptop. With the right speakers this is brilliant, much better than the price would suggest. Must get one as I have a good speaker set-up like the one I tried out. Streets ahead of the original sound and a very reasonable price too!
I do a lot of my listening with high quality headphones and was expecting this unbranded economy DAC to be a bit of a disappointment when it came to sound reproduction. I connected it to the"optical out" from my TV and use it with headphones only. What a surprise it was to hear such an excellent sound. I have to say that I agree with the majority of your reviewers and am more than satisfied. Definitely value for money.
To coin the phrase, does what it says on the tin. This handy box-of-tricks bridges the gap between the all-digital outputs of AV equipment and the phono inputs of not-very-old amplifiers. With obsolescence seemingly built-in to modern day electrical stuff, it's good to know that gizmos like this are available. Much cheaper than buying a new amp! I'd just echo the point made by another reviewer that the box does need a 5V DC power input (via USB) to work; fortunately this was helpfully pointed out to me by the sales assistant at the time of purchase.
Got one of these just to try it out as an alternative to my pc speakers. (Have a good pair of headphones plugged into it - Audio Technica ath ad 700 ) That was a year ago and I do most of my listening using these. Youtube and mp3s sound great . Highly recommended. Also connected my hifi into it as well so I can share the sound. Probably the best bit of pc kit I have bought yet. Do your ears a favour and get one
I wanted to connect an LED TV to my Hi-Fi but it does not have analogue out, just an optical out. This ingenious device converted optical to analogue without any fuss, I just plugged in an optical lead from the telly to the device then connected audio leads from the device to my hi-if, both leads have to be purchased separately. Also connected the USB lead supplied in the box to a power supply, I used a spare iPhone charger plug and it worked a dream.Saved me spending a lot more than I did as I was going to buy an optical speaker system.Top marks from me.
This device can be used to connect to either co-axial or optical SPDIF, but it does need to have USB connected. I am using it to power my personal inductive loop so I can listen to the TV clearly and it does not interfere with other people. This is a brilliant device and works really well. I would highly recommend this device for those who are hearing impaired as an interface between various devices.
I was thinking about spending silly money on a soundbar when I found this. Using the optical output (from the TV) is worlds apart from the 3.5mm socket when connected to a Hi Fi. Worth every penny!
Ideal for taking an optical audio signal from a TV and converting it to analogue audio suitable for connection to a hifi system. Happy with the product and good value at the price.
The usual fast service and excellent product. Works like a dream. At last proper sound from my TV and AppleTV :-)
