It would be great to have this. I have converted to mostly computer playback and this will be a great upgrade from the headphone/RCA cable interface.

Dac's are coming out of the woodwork. It is not the chips that count. It is not the interface. It is the power supply, the grounding, and the output stages. That's my humble opinion. Having auditioned some very expensive DACs lately, I am still convinced that vinyl is better. I said "it's not the chips that count" but what I really mean is that none of the currently available chips succeed in being perfect at clocking and being immune to jitter and being able to recreate a sound wave perfectly. Inexpensive DACs like this designed by engineers that make compromises wisely might well be the way to go, because even the DACs that do everything right still sound digital. Felt compelled to express this, though my first instinct was to simply post "I'll gladly take it and give it a try".
