anybody? how might this compare to other sub $200 dacs?
I bought the glow 1.3 used and got it home yesterday. It didn't blow me away, but I'm liking it more and more. A LOT better than the headphone jack on my laptop, but since I haven't tried any other DACs with my setup I can't do any such comparison. But I'd say its worth its price and more. Compared to the integrated soundcard it brings the whole song together while bringing out lots of nuances in the instruments, i.e. like a good DAC should. Only downside is it's sounds a little dark.
Strike that, I just noticed that my DAC is not the same as the box it came in. Mine is actually a muse mini USB dac. I paid 20 euros for it so it was dirt cheap. I think I saw it for around 50$ on amazon... Ok, hope my next posts won't be this bad.
