USB DAC for 15 Euro!

Bought myself a little Christmas present.

Want to see if I can get a little less noise when listening to music on my PC.

Ordered a little Bur Brown PCM2704 based DAC board on eBay (here). It’s actually amazing what you get for 15 Euro!

It has a precision clock based on a +-25 ppm 12 MHz crystal oscillator, and it even has a pulse trafo equiped S/PDIF output.





Looking forward to testing it :)

There is simply no way I could buy the components and PCB and make it myself for this price!

    Well, though very cheap, I’m not sure it is actually worth the money!
    It sounds quite good, but on the two computers I have tried it out, it is more noisy than the built in DAC :(
