I am looking for an affordable USB DAC/headphone amp for my desktop set up.
I am currently using a Hotaudio DAC Destroyer which feeds both a T-amp and a CMOY but the output jack is past it's usefull life. (and I fancy trying something different).
Did anyone ever consider this one?:
On paper it seems very decent but I have so far been unable to find any kind of feedback on this unit.
This is why it's on my short list:
- Integrated power supply (as opposed to an adapter or powered by USB)
- Cirrus CS4398 DAC chip
- Rollable Opamps (and I allready have a few for my CMOY)
- Line out for my T-amp
This is why I have doubts:
- The name "Fire Phoenix" sounds like a Chuck Norris movie which went straight to video.
- Good core components are not a guarantee for a good product.
Does anyone want to share their experience or view on this one?
