  • I said before, whenever a manufacturer give you an upgrade to your equipment, go for it.

    Before, my DAC could only do a max of 384K sampling only.

    DAC opened up for the modification.

    Close-up of old USB board, upon removal.

    Close-up of new fitted USB2 board.

    Now DAC can do 768K sampling.

    I am very happy with the results!

  • I read this Usb2 come with low latency XMOS2 chipset, is a good hardware upgrade for better SQ. The upsample data also go straight to the DAC bypassing the filter. The benefits of PGGB file will become even more obvious.
