A great DAC at a great price. One owner.
I pay the shipping and the paypal fees.
The PopPulse PCM1796 USB DAC has both the performance and credentials to become the new benchmark in the highly competitive affordable DAC market.
Keeping it simple, this unit forgoes any needless extra features such as being a preamplifier or doubling as a headphone amplifier.
Instead all effort has gone into making the PopPulse PCM1796 a superior quality Digital to Analogue Converter.
The two piece aluminium box chassis design serves to separate the high quality mains power transformer from the sensitive DAC conversion circuitry. In doing so, the signal to noise ratio is enhanced by interference being reduced.
As well as featuring optical toslink and coaxial digital SPDIF inputs, the PopPulse PCM1796 DAC features a very high quality USB 2 input.
Using the excellent CM-108 receiving chip, this USB 2 input directly converts and feeds the data stream into the high performance BB / TI PCM1796 DAC chip in the superior I2S format (avoiding any needless jitter inducing conversion into SPDIF).
The PopPulse PCM1796 DAC has both the resolution and finesse to take on and beat the competition.
