Thanks for your informative insight. How could so many people have got it so wrong?

That really is a great mystery to me, I'm very happy to have sold it for $200+ though. It held it's value well.

But what is the alternative?

Sorry, can't help you there. I'm on a totally different setup (speaker) now (very expensive one, still shopping for a new DAC)

 

All I know was, an OEM Android phone on battery + el cheapo headphone sounded VERY GOOD to my ears....

I have one ODAC in my home speakers setup and one ODAC+O2 in my office workplace to drive many headphones 8, 16, 60, 100, 250 ohms. And I don't know an alternative.

However, only ODAC module costs 100$ assembled. O2 costs only 30$ as DIY parts. And 2..3 hours of soldering.

That is exactly why people are buying them for. If they don't have a soul in the first place, then the audio devil's sweet-talk won't work. ;)

If you don't recommend the ODAC, what DAC ($200-300) would you recommend to use with a speaker setup?

Short question...

 

Has the USB Port of the Microsoft Surface 2 (RT Version, if matters) enough power to "drive" the ODAC (don't want a powered usb hub)?

 

Thanks!
