“   Some years ago I upgraded the clock in a fairly inexpensive DAC experimentally and realised the importance of the quality of the digital input to the quality of the sound output. It wasn't long after that a number of companies came out with digital converters, especially USB ones, since the quality of USB inputs in DACs at the time was generally poor. They also allowed older DACs...” --Currawong

Musiland Digital Times 24/192 PCI card

Musiland Digital Times 24/192 PCI card

“ So it works, under Windows XP 32bit, with Foobar2000 and ASIO plugin. Just for fun, I've tested it with XMPlay + ASIO plugin, it works too.   Since may 2011, driver is unified and works with the Moli model too ("Device Driver for MUSILAND Monitor Series(Legacy)" in the MlVTMon.inf file). Drivers are a bit of concern for me, doesn't seem that Musiland are renowned for that. But today...” --AiZ0

Esi Juli@ Audio Interface

“Edited to reflect observations after extended listening. I just installed this sound card and was pleasantly surprised at the sound quality. The reason I bought this card is because its unbalanced analog outputs were praised by The Absolute Sound and that is how I use the card. Their praise was well deserved. It normally sells around $200, I picked up one lightly used (still in new box) for...” --MRC001

Creative Labs Sound Blaster Wireless Audio Transmitter and Receiver Bundle

Creative Labs Sound Blaster Wireless Audio Transmitter and Receiver Bundle

“ I bought one of these b/c I recently discovered Spotify and didn't want to be tethered to my 2.1 system or my rack stereo while I was working at home on my laptop. Ordered it, received it, opened the box, skipped the manual (naturally), plugged it in, and -- BANG!! -- music playing over my sound system. I didn't even have to install the software. It took me longer to open the box and...” --Schnazola

Roland Quad Capture

Roland Quad Capture

“ The Roland Quad Capture 2X2 comes from the world of pro audio but is a viable option when used as a USB DAC with a laptop or desktop. The Roland uses regenerated USB power, which effectively isolates the signal path from stray noise, a serious issue when DACs are used with computers. The unit is 100% USB bus powered.   The Quad Capture is usable without drivers, plug it in and it shows...” --imagic

Muse Audio X5 Mini PCM2704 USB Sound Card

Muse Audio X5 Mini PCM2704 USB Sound Card

“This little DAC is a definite upgrade over the on-board sound card on my laptop. When listening to my Westone 3s on it, the soundstage is wider and deeper, there is greater resolution in the higher frequencies, and the bass has more impact. Thing's built very nicely too, with an all-aluminum housing. There can be a bit of background hiss on more sensitive...” --PeterPangea
