I might look at the ODAC, and yea I know [don't use the amp function] and I also looked at the 

Audinst HUD-mx1 Hi-Fi USB Audio DAC

 

No it doesn't. Transient is like a loud and sudden peak in the audio. I think the word your looking for is "transparent." In that case, personally I would avoid potentially sketchy brands such as Nuforce, Audinst, etc...

 

As I always say, don't count out pro audio interfaces either, though it probably doesn't make a difference as there isn't really any price difference.

I remember the days when I used to spend time 'researching' what audio devices I wanted to buy. Now I'm tired and don't really care anymore, hahaha.

Difference in SQ I hear in different gear throughout my audio journey:

None -> A LOT -> a bit.

LOL

When I first listened to hi-res files I was all like "holy cow, I can hear the purer more analog-like sound waves, so much more realistic! (◐ o ◑ )" And I remember getting into an argument with someone in the sound science forums because I claimed that the difference between redbook and 24/96 was "night and day." I got mad because people were telling me otherwise and asking if I did an ABX (it was an ABX thread) and I was all like "What's that? I don't need no ABX or whatever, I can clearly hear the difference!"

Closest I could find to what I sort of want in the volume knob and case feet section.

Looks rather tall though...

30mm x 30mm IS rather tall, but I don't mind.

 

Now we need to think of how to position the PCBs inside the case:

O2: 80mm x 100mm

DAC: 87mm x 100mm

Controller: 76mm x 90mm

Volume mounting: 25mm x 25mm

 

ideas?

Why are all the well-proportioned knobs black? Haha.
