    And without taking up a ton of space like some nos. You can see it's size next to the vacuum tubes.

    GOOD DAC for money for sure. I am using it daily and like it a lot. I am powering it from USB so it is not optimal set up but keen to hook it up with LPS to further improve its sound. GLWS :)

    I wouldn't think a lps would help; it's powered by it's internal batteries.

    Great to know. I never unplug my USB cable and was thinking to power with dedicated LPS but might stick to current power source (USB). USB is only to power the unit and connection between my iMac and DAC 3 is via Optical cable. Not because I hate USB but I could not make it work USB connection because latest Mac OS does not support the Dac. Windows are fine when I tried them.

    But, it sounds good and never get ear fatigue...

    Seriously, it is very good dac for the money and highly recommend to try it and the asking price here is great deal... :)

    Bump, lowered price by 33%, or $50, to $100.
    I don't want this sitting around. I want to buy those massdrop koss estats.

    Sadly I don't even have $100, but if I did well, you know the rest. GLWTS. A little surprised you still have it, tbh. I've still never heard an nos dac. I'm askeered.

    It seems not too many people know about this dac, and it is pretty entry level, so many people have better dacs.

    Though still a great entry into nos land without breaking the bank, and remaining compact.
