Physical Unit (Part III - Back)
Lots of things happening at the back:
- AUX In/Out: Tried this jack in Aux in mode, and it works. Did not really listen to this critically, but already it’s heaps better than my laptop’s line in. Having an analog input will be in handy in the few rare situations when I need one for work. Don’t leave this plugged in unless you’re using Aux In though - you can hear noise on the USB input if AuxIn is connected. The headphone out volume also dips. Makes one wonder - is the relay click I hear doing anything at all?
- DEVICE: This is the USB input. This is a weird input to use as it means I cannot use “after-market” USB cables. One can only assume this is the best receptacle to use with mobile devices
- LINK: A recessed red LED that lits up when using the DEVICE link.
- CHARGE: Micro-USB jack for charging the DAC. There is another recessed LED (red) that will light up when charging. And if the DAC is on, the OLED display has a battery indicator showing the charge.
- DIGITAL IN: Yet to try this. But again will be handle when needed.
As you can see, a variety of options for a little over $200. It has all the inputs I need for my work, and it plays music.

hey, u still have this thing?
i think what happen is that the opamp chip needs change. Consider LME49720 if u dont fancy to do any soldering, or just buy the Burson V5i if u have budget, easier.
I crossed this text when i roll the opamp, and i think my opa1612 is bad, and got this text.

Yeah still have it. Using it mainly for work. Am considering a Burson V5i, will eventually buy one (waiting for a sitewide e-bay discount to pull the trigger).
