Not a good DAC Compared to My DAC-IT, The Dac is good for improving the overall sound of lower-end speakers, if i need to compare this dac to other low-end dacs i owned i would compare it to the Nuforce Icon, the Dacmagic 100 isn't amazing but you could hear the difference all tho that isn't something to brag about.
Songs used on with this DAC:
Brian Eno - An Ending
Olafur Arnalds - 3055
Phutureprimitive - Xotica
John Tavener - Funeral Canticle
Kings Of Leon - Closer
and some OST tracks from Various Projects and films...
the lows on this dac are really good in fact i think they are very boomy but that wasn't something i was looking for
the mids are good as well but the highs not so much. this Dac puts out a well balanced audio that doesn't sound flat, compared to others...
but if you are searching For that "WOW" effect, this isn't the DAC for you but if you are looking to improve the performance of your system this might do the trick.
however i still want to test the Benchmark Dac's but so far the Peachtree audio DAC-IT is the one that really has the audio i was looking for, but i'm curious to see how the benchmarks sounds... it could be interesting...
