The design is great & if the specs sound as good as they look, this must be a great product. But the connectors are RJ12 (I dun know what that is) but from the photo it looks something like a normal phone jack. THe problem is, with this soundcard, it looks like you're stuck with Linn's DAC only. Perhaps if you're buying it as a whole package this is ok but if you need to interface with other equipments the non standard interface might pose a problem.

As such, I think the CardDeluxe is a better deal. Industrial standard connectors, balanced output & cheaper too. Stereophile reviewed. ;-)

BTW, I dun own either of these products, so take it with lots of salt.
