Wonderful DAC with beautiful sound. I have upgraded to a much more expensive DAC with the NFB-1.32 holding it's own against the upgrade.
Dac utilizes the Sabre32 chipset and has upgrades offered by Audio-GD.
USB driver available at Audio-GD website.
Price includes paypal and UPS ground shipping to lower 48 in original factory box.
