That's pretty much the price I paid. However I found (AFTER I placed my order...) that someone paid only $500 not to long ago.
Price inclusive of freight was round $500 and with added Swedish Import VAT it became $600 but still a very OK price.
It works like charm with Korgs own Audiogate player for me both in XP and Windows 7. JRiver is also working but a bit more tricky in Win 7, but that's me.
Foobar is so far no success, but eventually I think it will work also for me.
Qualitywise I think it is very good value for the money. I have the Behringer DCX2496 in combination with SRC2496 to compare PCM-performance up to 24/96 and I think that the Ds-Dac-10 is if anything perhaps better than the Behringers. The people at dsdfile.com offer a strong recommendation for the Korg and they have Meitner MA-1 to compare with regarding DSD playing.
