    "Mini"-Monitors for a space challenged desk

    Quote: While I am no fan of Bose, I will not tar and feather you.  But, as these are about the same size as the A2's and the TASCAM's, I would probably opt for either of them first.  Thanks again for the suggestions.   --Ken

    Quote: I have no problem with you not liking the uDAC-2, but I am curious as to what better alternatives in this price range you are referring to?  I was not able to find any USB DAC's with RCA outs at any price close to the uDAC-2.  Could you share some of your preferred alternatives...

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS: NEW Nuforce uDAC-2 with 24/96 - USB DAC AMP with line out and S/PDIF out

    Quote: I think that somebody with more technical expertise will need to answer this question.  I believe that the RCA line-outs put out 2 Volts RMS, but as I mentioned previously,  they are tied to the volume pot.  Obviously, the headphone out does not put out that strong of a signal, but...
