Today is the last day for intro pricing
** April 7, 2009 Update **





Introducing the HeadAmp Pico Upsampling USB DAC - maybe not much of an introduction is needed, because it shares a lot in common with the HeadAmp Pico DAC/Amp. Except this unit is ONLY a USB DAC, with pure line outputs in RCA and mini, and no battery to charge. The result is an easy to use, great sounding USB DAC at an attractive price.

The Pico Upsampling USB DAC supports 16/44.1 and 16/48 bit/sample rates, and uses hardware upsampling to 24/96. It is not necessary to install any drivers or software and it is compatible with all versions of Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The DAC is a Wolfson WM8740 with a proper FET op-amp output stage. Each digital chip has its own voltage regulation, which removes any noise from the USB line. A 4-layer circuit board allows for a good layout with full ground planes on both the top and bottom of the board. The line outputs are RCA and mini and can be used simultaneously.

The dimensions are the same as the Pico Amp and Pico DAC/Amp - 2.74x0.86x2" (69.6x21.8x50.8mm)

The price will be $349, but I'd like to offer an intro price on Head-Fi of $299. This will be good for the first 100 units OR the first 30 days (April 7), whichever comes first. The expected shipping date is in 30 days (April 7), and they'll all be ready to ship at that time.

If you'd like to sign up, please post in this thread with your request and include the following information:

COLOR: Black or silver

USB Mini-B cables are available for $5 each, in lengths of 1, 3, or 6 feet

COUNTRY the Pico USB DAC will be shipping to. Shipping is $10 in the USA, $30 Canada and $35 rest of the world for USPS Global Express

No payment is needed now, but please be ready in 30 days (April 7) when the Pico USB DAC will be shipping

There is also a "bonus" feature of the Pico USB DAC. If you use an amp with standard board mount RCA jacks (14mm center to center spacing), such as the Gilmore Lite or GS-1, and hundreds of others, you can connect male-to-male RCA couplers between the Pico USB DAC and your headphone amp instead of any interconnect.
