FIRST IMPRESSIONS: NEW Nuforce uDAC-2 with 24/96 - USB DAC AMP with line out and S/PDIF out - Page 59

post #871 of 874

Can someone give me a rundown of all the different versions and fixes to the uDac2 line?  With all the drama and versions I'm having a hard time figuring whats fixed, whats not and whats added and in which versions.

 

Did any revision address the spike in distortion when the input level neared 0dbFS?

So the uDac-2 has been around now for over 3 years.  I'm listening to one now, it's great.  But time marches on and I wonder how it stands up against newer asynchronous devices like the Dragonfly and HRT Microstreamer.  Has anyone made the jump?  What do you think?

Well I just picked up a uDac-2 for $60 brand new......couldn't pass that up and I needed a decent DAC anyway.

 

I'm using it with my desktop mainly (Lenovo Horizon 27"). Lenovo --> uDac-2 --> Bravo Audio Ocean (Tube Amp) --> Beyerdynamic DT 990 Premium 250.

 

VERY happy with this set up. I also tried the uDac-2 without the Bravo and I though it worked quite well on its own. I also like that I can take it and plug it in to my Surface 2 and use it as a stand alone DAC/AMP.

Yeah, my son still prefers the uDAC-2 sound quality over his Schiit Audio Modi, but it doesn't work with an iPad and CCK like the Modi.
