ocswing the USB isn't that bad. But in comparison to my DACport LX it does leave a lot to be desired. That is setting a high standard as is since the DACport goes for over $300.00 and is just a DAC. What I am saying though is the Optical and Coaxial implementation is better on the UHA6MKII and you will get better sound from the DAC using those 2 options over the USB input. The product is still very much worth its price IMO.
Thanks guys! I just wanted to make sure I was covering all possibilities. This will be a decent step up in quality for me and I don't want to skimp if possible. My plan is to use the optical when I'm at home, the usb with my laptop on the road (it doesn't have optical), and I'll run a LOD out of my iPod Touch on the go. I'll be placing an order for one in the next couple weeks!
