I've been shopping for a new desktop DAC lately and came across this one on the Music Direct site which looked intriguing. Here's a brief overlay of chief characteristics-
" USB Input working in asynchronous mode up to 24bits/192kHz and accepting USB audio class 1.0 and USB audio class 2.0 modes without any driver implementation for Mac and a custom Micromega driver for PC.
Insignificant jitter in USB asynchronous mode thanks to two very low jitter master clocks ( 22.5792 MHz for multiple of 44.1kHz and 24.5760 MHz for multiple of 48kHz), with dedicated low noise power supplies."
So I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with this DAC? I didn't see any reviews or impressions of it on here which makes me somewhat suspicious. I'm also not familiar with the DAC chip, so I'm guessing it's an older one. Another question I have is whether it's an upsampling DAC not, the website and reviews make no mention of that.
Any info you guys could share on this DAC would be greatly appreciated. Other DACs I'm looking at in this price range include Audio-gd 11.32, Schiit Bifrost, and a couple other DACs that do 24/192 over USB. Must be async and non-upsampling.
Thanks in advance for the info
