  • The following is a review by one of our customers: The review::

    I was looking for a DAC with XLR output & an analog RCA line-in, the HDACC fits perfectly. Bought it by pure faith & it doesn't disappoint.

    My simple CD setup is Rega Saturn direct to a YBA integre amp. Amp headphone output to the Yamaha monitor speakers HS80M XLR input. Now with the HDACC, I can use true XLR I/O & believe me, it is a big step forward! This & the hi res DAC make my CDs sound so much more realistic & the presence of the music is simply breath taking! Musical & defined & refine.

    Next I plug it into my desktop using WireWorld Silver Starlight-6 USB. The HDACC comes with a small cd driver for win7/8. Its a breeze & after that, plug in my Audio Tech headphone ATH AD10. The music & songs have so much more "meat" & the bite of the percussion & strings are so much more richer & dynamic. The instrument positions & soundstage are uncanny. This improvement is in comparison to my current cheap Creative X-Fi surround 5.1 pro DAC.

    Tips to maximize the sound quality: Buy very good cables, they do make a difference! I use QED reference coax silver plated high purity OFC (DIY) with Canare RCA jacks & WireWorld silver plated hi purity OFC USB cable. Many experts out there claim it doesn't make a difference in the digital domain, however, most didn't know or realize for digital music & video or any other time sensitive data, besides the famous jitter error, there's also duty cycle distortion. The latter is less talked about but it is also a MAJOR killer in digital music & video.

    I have an Audioquest Vodka HDMI for my future HTPC setup. Will like to dwell into hi rez audio with SACD or DVD audio in the near future. If you use silver plated high purity OFC HDMI cable, the color depth, the blacks & the sheen is immediately noticeable. I've tested & confirmed the improvement.

    Btw, HDACC can also be used on the mac w/o drivers. Tried it on my Snow Leopard & no issues at all.
