"The DAC8 Pro is superbly engineered and delivers on objective measurements like there is no tomorrow."
"This one throws a gigantic sound stage. A friend remarked, I needed a bigger room to do justice to the stage. This thing is black. The dynamic range is huge. Just for giggles, I brought down the volume -60 dB and I could still hear the song well. The sound is a little laid back, very musical, and analog. The notes are crystal clear, very resolving."
Dinesh, dac8 tour participant
"Sound quality is a significant upgrade from the Asus Essence STX 7.1 soundcard I have been using up till now. Most appreciated is that it’s engaging even at fairly low amplitudes and it helps making music more interesting."
