Pros: compact and surprisingly good

Cons: some hiccups as a dac

an amazing product, as a dac it sometimes stutters when you work your computer hard.

Nice detailed review, based on how much info i got from the review , will definitely buy one :P
This is the first time I've read about the stutter, but I've experienced it many times. Glad to know it's not just me.
That 'stutter' isn't caused by the dac, but by your computer. It's called latency, you probably are using it on your laptop? If so, try turning of your internal wifi adapter, this is usually the cause of the latency. It has something to do with drivers taking too much bandwith/memory (I really don't know) of your usb ports, causing the latency in your music. You can download a latency monitoring program like dpc latency monitor. Than you can literally see the latency, and you can turn off devices one by one to check if the latency is gone.
