    Need to buy a DAC with amp

    Haha, no problem there. A long time ago I was a EEE student and I have designed PCB and sim the circuits. Not I can not remember a thing...   Audio-gd will ship my 5.32 tomorrow, yeah!

    Need to buy a DAC with amp

    Thanks everyone for the input, I have ordered from Audio-gd. Just that they do not have the 5.2 anymore, instead, they offered me the 5.32 for $10 more, they said the USB chip is better or something.   After all it was only USD 396 including delivery, which was a bit cheaper than I expected...

    Need to buy a DAC with amp

    Thanks for the long feedback. I am not completely sold to Asus, If the quality of sound are the same for both then I will go for Asus.

    Need to buy a DAC with amp

    The problem is I use my computer for most of the music. I have Xi-Fi sound card for speakers and MIC, MD11 is there for headphone, so USB is my only option for now I guess, or otherwise I will have to switch inputs and change config for the sound card every time.

    Need to buy a DAC with amp

    For example the musiland MD11 I currently have, the driver is close to useless, there is almost nothing you can modify. The normal sound card from ASUS or Creative will give you more options right? And the MD11 driver is not very stable for me. I thought it must because these companies are not...
