Yeah it is a decent DAC. The price is right and I think it does well overall. The description used on PV website is pretty accurate.

EDIT: one more question - does it support true ASIO 2.0 output via USB? In other words, would it be better to run it direct via USB with its ASIO drivers, or would it be better to run it via optical out from my Edirol UA-1EX which support and has its own ASIO drivers.
Thanks for the info. Essentially what I mean to ask is if it has its own ASIO drivers and can be run with proper ASIO in a program like foobar, and not something like ASIO4ALL (which I have read is inferior) or some faux ASIO which uses something like kernel streaming behind the scenes
The Edirol unfortunately only has optical digital out, via mini jack. I would thus need either a mini-Toslink adapter or a cable with mini-jack one side and Toslink on the other. If the ASIO driver works very well via USB on the Musiland I'd rather go for that in order to minimize the links in the chain. Only if the USB input is inherently bad for some reason or another would I prefer to keep the Edirol "in the loop".
