i was very tempted by this, but i've been waiting long enough to buy a DAC that i went upmarket and ordered the one i've had my on for more than a year... the PS Audio DLIII with Cullen L3 mods.

I am really excited to hear this DAC. I really want to go sort of mid DAC range without spending too much money. I have so badly wanted to try out the KECES 131 and now this has come along. I also want to try the beresford as a posible setup along side my HT setup.
Got just last week the Musical Fidelity V-DAC. 170 € here in Barcelona (some 200 $). Very, very pleased. I've been listening to it all week with a MF X-can V3 headphone amp and both AKGs K701 and Senn HD595, mainly from ape and flac file in my laptop. -also some CD. Sound is excellent. Depends of course of other components, but mine are all moderate-to-low price, at the end result is absolutely phantastic.
An added virtue: very very small size. If you can do this at the price and in this size, this makes me think.. mmm
1.- Listen mainly classical. In this very moment: Horowitz in Moscow (inspired live concert of the genius in 1986) . My buddy just revolved and couldnt resist to show interest - well this is the definitive test to me!
Also have revised Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother.. I'm still grinning.
2.- I'm not selling anything to anybody. Just sharing my (nice) surprise,
3.- The Senns were my buddy's favorites. I still definitely prefer the K701s.
4.- I looking forward to test the Corda I've ordered from Jan. I ordered the USB version.Will try them both with their built in USB DAC and through the V-DAC ....Shall keep you informed ;-))
5. Cannont compare to other DACs;this is my first. But I know it is difficcult to get good quality through USB, thereof my surprise.
