I'm quite amazed at just how good this DAC is. I've been using it with a raspyfi setup and it sounds great! It's a very precise sound, which can sound a bit harsh depending on the system you are playing it through, but it's definitely a good match for me. I can also confirm that this beauty is quite happy to drive my UE 9000 headphones, making it a great travel DAC. I've also tried the DAC 2 with external PSU, which to my ears sounds identical, but seems more suited to my home audio system owing to its RCA output and build quality.
Pour l'instant je n'ai rien reçu . Cela fait presque un mois (24/05) et surtout aucune nouvelle par mail ... malgré les relances . Je pense que le livreur vient à velo ...
ADMIN REPLY: His package was lost by the post, we have sent him a replacement package.

Got mine today, connected to my piCorePlayer, woooww ........what a difference!!!! It's very very good DAC. I am very happy. I think I'll get another one. Thank you.
Very good DAC, isn't great for games because don't suport it's tecnologys like normal Sound Cards but is perfect for musics, eargasms everyware. lol
It needs a amplifier if you are using a hungry headphone by it drives well earphnes.
I don't regreat nothing :)
I've already written one review, this is just a note to any fellow Linux users. I am using Ubuntu, this method may also be true for Debian and other users.
The best I could do is enable 24 bit output in Pulseaudio by editing /etc/pulse/daemon.conf and changing default-sample-format = s24le
Using 96KHz seemed to be problematic, even with resampling - I suggest to stick with 44100 - 24 bit at least gives decent live mixing.
I use audacious as a player, which has the option to output 24 bit to pulseaudio and to resample all to 44100 with the best method via the resample plugin.
I think there is some problem with maintaining the data rate for 24/96 - you can check anytime what the device is actually doing by "cat /proc/asound/DAC/stream0"
It might be just my custom kernel that has a problem, if you can confirm 24/96 works ok for you either with ALSA or Pulseaudio, please let me know!
