The GT40 Harmonizes Computer Files and Analog Inputs


Playback Magazine Review 

Furutech Introduces the 24/96 GT40 USB DAC with Phono Stage
The GT40 is finally here, built for enthusiasts with growing music collections on their computer hard drives. It’s a high performance 24-bits/96kHz USB DAC that’s amazingly affordable at only $480 in the USA. Looking to convert your LPs or other analog sources to digital? The GT40 will take you to the podium with every album you archive.
The seriously-shielded audiophile-grade GT40 features a low-latency USB 2.0 audio driver that plays and records at 96 kHz. A likely first for this category, the GT40 includes a built-in low-noise MM / MC phono preamp! Record your favorite vinyl to hard disk via the USB output.
The ADL GT40 features L/R analog outputs, and switchable line or phono inputs with a vivid, captivating sound that is simply unheard of in this category.
The ADL GT40 (wired with Furutech’s GT2 USB cable of course!) brings Furutech’s signature sound -- smooth, detailed clarity -- to desktop systems, especially with high resolution 24-bits/96kHz files, but even 16-bit/44.1kHz files sound impeccable and very musical.

The picture you posted indicates Coax/Toslink input and output. But the picture shown here doesn't have such: http://www.audioholics.com/news/press-releases/adl-gt40-usb-dac-furutech/image_view_fullscreen

Picture has been revised. Looks like Japan forgot to tell the US distributor about the picture change:(

Ya I've read some of those but what about on Head-fi.  Are there any people that have tested this dac out?  I've used the search and most of what I found are people asking about the dac rather than talking about how it performs.
