thanks venkat. I read the what hifi review. The cost was 169 pounds. It concluded by saying there are better dacs in the price class, without mentioning a single one.
now the obvious question that comes to my mind is...how does this compare to the Asus Xonar Essence STX?
I have more faith in what Stereophile says than what WhatHifi says. Beyond a certain basic technicalities, all these reviews become very subjective.
Even if the Xonar card is good, the smps power supply of the PC will corrupt the signal to some degree. You need a mobo with an independant power supply for audio circuits like this new one: ASUS Unveils New Motherboard Catering Specifically to HTPC Users | NordicHardware
Then again the proximity to other hi-speed data circuitry of the mobo might create subtle interference ...
P.S sometimes i wonder actually one of us should suggest to asus that they shoud try building a DAC on the linesof thier SC's
hey moser mail them na?hyeah:
Dont many DACs re-clock the signal?
Is it a good dac, and would it compare with CA and Beresford dacs commonly discussed here?
Any other DACs recommended in 15k INR range?
