It looks good and the USB option is really nice. And the sound is better than every internal Dac i use (XBOX-XBMC, Digital Broadcast and Computer).
So my PCI Sound Card is for recording from radio only.
First i thought to take a zhaolu but i don´t like the upgrade thing and compare diffrent chips and so on, so this is the best solution for the best price i think.
One Question, several times i read about ASIO driver for the DAC and so on.
I use ITunes and the first time i plugged in my MD-10 the computer installed some drivers, but i think C-Media device.
Is it better to use ASIO drivers?
Can i use this with iTunes?
Do i have to delete the C-Media driver? (because my PCI card use this)
But all in all, it looks and sounds very nice, so take a look on it if you need DAC.
I don't have an answer on the ASIO driver for ITunes (I too am looking for an answer on that one) but I installed the ASIO driver with the foobar media player in addition to my ITunes and all I can say is WOW
The difference is like comparing a cheap off the shelf CD players sound to a true audiophile player. Here's a fantastic link on how ASIO works and all the info to make it happen. Without it, I wouldn't have had a clue. THANKS EnOYin!! BIG TIME!!http://www.head-fi.org/forums/showth...highlight=ASIO
I'm still trying to figure out foobar to its fullest. I can't say it's my favorite media player, but the sound quality of the ASIO driver, makes it a true winner! You won't be disapointed. Also you shouldn't have to delete the C-Media driver in order to use it.
