    Mini Dac TDA1543 X 4 NOS

    @Lumos.   You cannot connect your HP's directly to this DAC. The DAC must be connected to an amplifier,then your HP's plug into the amplifier.

    Mini Dac TDA1543 X 4 NOS

    @Virgo, I would'nt bother with the silmic II,I have both the original and the silmicII versions,I really like the original but the silmicII was a disappointment to me, it has a larger soundstage and a nice open sounding top end but the bass was a bit of a mess,soft and flabby sounding...

    Dacmagic question

    I agree with playbuoy,the dacmagic's usb input is dull and flat sounding, spdif and toslink input is far superior. if you intend to just use the usb input you should look elsewhere.

    Essence STX into dedicated AMP, two problems. ran out of options.

    I had a popping problem when i first got mine, turned out to be poor contact in the opamp sockets, Just pop out the 3 opamps clean the "legs" and be sure to check the sockets, I found a picture online (cant find it now),and the bottom corner of one of the sockets was actually rusty red...
