I just ordered one of these 60 bucks from ebay delivered. I figured the design principles were not far removed from the Vdac principle of minimalism. I'm going to carry a shootout with my Dacmagic and report back on how it fares. For 60 bucks, there isn't much to lose. My way to test the waters with a R2R and NOS before forking out for the hi-end units. It looks very modible as well. If it fares well with the Dacmagic, I'll sell the dacmagic and purchase the single chip version and the PCM1793 delta sigma version. Giving me 3 flavours for the price of 1 Dacmagic...that is the plan.
