What will be the best way to connect it to an iMac?
USB or mini-Toslink??
Arte there any reviews posted anywhere? Google comes up empty on the English searches...
USB or Toslink should both sound comparable. Toslink supposedly handles 24/192 while USB tops out at 24/96. Aside from that just pick whichever is more convenient.
There are no reviews yet. I just got the Quattro DAC a few days ago and I have much listening to do before I can review it. First impressions are that it is at least as good as my Yulong D100 in the sound department, perhaps a bit better. And the features, build quality, and appearance are all great.
I also have the matching Quattro balanced amp on the way, and should receive it this week. Now that's an exciting product - balanced design at under $400? Awesome. I got the matching adapter so I can use a balanced 4-pin XLR cable with it.
