Can anyone recommend a good DAC or sound card? I just bought some Rokit 6s, and they're picking up a lot of digital distortion from the Mobo. I was thinking of getting pic related. Any thoughts?

Lurking for interest.
My marantz PM94 almost has its last part to complete the restore, so no more optical input.
I'd prefer both optical and RCA inputs for versatility.

it's a waste of money

same as FLAC is a waste of disk space

I'm using that DAC right now and I would recommend it. Sounds nice.

i've loved the shit out of this since release but the usb cable has gotten fiddly.

I have that one OP. It's pretty good but there's a couple design issues:

The light is fucking bright and you cant disable it
The USB port is shallow so the plug only fits about halfway, which makes it easy to disconnect by accident

The main selling point of the FiiO is the headphone amplifier, which is something I don't think you need.

UCA202 is fine and is around $30 I believe.

actually when you have a decent sound system you can hear the difference between the youtube audio quality and flacs.

regular speakers won't let you hear tho.

but it's not even expensive if you know where to and what to look.

>>51484348
get yourself an audio interface, focusrite scarlett 2i2, or a steinberg ur22
>>
>>51484348
I bought an o2 and I couldn't tell the difference between that and my 120€ soundcard.

Sent it back immediately.
>>
>>51484610
I've always loved the design of this particular O2, its just the fact that the fucking AC port is on the front.. why?
>>
>>51485468
Also using this one. Have it for 3 months now. Needed one to connect my AT2020 with, and being able to connect my AKG k550 was pretty sweet.

I have a Steinberg UR22.

>>51486041
It is a pretty good all-rounder audio interface indeed.

>>51484348
There aren't anymore good DACs, the last one is kill. You could ask Luke what happened to him, but he doesn't like to talk about it. :^)
>>
This for a standalone DAC. You can't get better for the money.
