This is a 8x over-sampling class DAC, it can convert any USB input format to 32bit 384Khz resolution , combine the pure tube rectifer and big output tube section, easily convert the digital sound into analoge sound with high-end vinyl playback quality. This might be the only and the best sounding 32bit USB DAC which can work with the wonderful sound Mullard EL32 and those other big power tubes like KT66 or 6550, it can effortlessly surpass the sonic performance of any small (6922, 12AX7...etc) / medium (6SL7, 6SN7...etc) size tube DAC and any solid-state DAC in the industry.

USB input capability let you easily hook up your computer (MAC / PC compatible) and transform it into a music server, which can play all ripped/downloaded music files or regular CD /DVD

Super enhanced power transformer for "Hanging-in-the-air" 3D imaging, and good enough to power up one pair of the power hungry KT120 output tubes.

SPDIF coaxial digital output to hook up other DAC which has no USB input capabilities.

Advance microprocessor controlled tube soft-warm-up design, greatly extend lifespan of those tubes and prevent start up surge noise.

Feedback from Ralph:

 Al, your DSD 32 bit DAC is fantastic.  No, make that Superbly Fantastic.  Never heard any dac sound this good, and I've heard some so-called high end and expensive ones here in California.  I'm running it from a MacBook Pro with Amarra.

I thought I'd never say it, but this is as good as my analog and Lp gear.. different, but still just as good.  Better in some cases.  Now my little system sounds like my 'big system!'   I'm going to put this thing in the big system as soon as I fix a bios problem with my Windows box.. cheap Accer pc.. paper thin motherboards.. lol!
