DAC + KH amplifier Korg convincing

Albert3631, 07.09.2014
The Korg DS-DAC-100 m is my second DAC + KH amplifier and a clear improvement.

The positive:

- The sound, fine resolution, correct pressure in the bass range, good gradation in the volume setting, drive also of 250 Ohm KH problem-free, 600 Ohm not yet tested, should not be a problem (too quiet).
- The recommended software to play (Audiogate) a bit habituftigig (use otherwise foobar), but good to handle.
- Drivers and software run also on xp-computer (with a error message, which has no visible effects)

Small Restrictions:

- The +/- buttons are very small, and a dirt edge of sweat and dust will soon form around the buttons
- The LEDs light up slightly, making the reading difficult
- Downloading the drivers and software very time-intensive and on the Korg HP is not easy to find;
- With a WIN 7 computer the installation does not work (surely no WIN problem - rather an error during the installation); In XP or another WIN 7 computer no longer a problem - but remain with the XP computer for the music.
- To strictly follow the sequence of the steps from the inst. Instruction (first driver then hardware ...).

I would buy again.

Superb sound quality.

I use this DAC on my PC and connected to Eltax Monitor III BT speakers. It replaces an external Creative XFi card.
The quality of manufacture is superb and the power supply by USB dispenses of one more wire as well as an electrical outlet mobilized for him.
The sound is spectacular. The sound scene is well ventilated and very detailed without excess or shine.
I had considered other models recognized for their performance, but what has most prevailed my choice is the fact that the Korg comes with its software Audiogate which allows the reading in ASIO mode PCM and DSD files without complex parameterization.
I am fully satisfied with my choice.

DAC Korg.
Advantages :
- beautiful metal fabrication
- small discreet size
- exceptional sound reproduction especially in DSD 64 and 128

Minor disadvantages:
- leds a little too powerful
- does not turn off when the PC is turned off (the previous card did). The PC must be switched off.

Advantages :
- comes free with the DAC
- no complex parameterization (we are far from foobar2000)
- seamlessly reads all PCM and DSD formats (up to 5.6 MHz).
- allows the export in DSD
- no need for anything else!

- it is necessary to uninstall previously the previous ASIO drivers such as ASIO4ALL or Creative which would block the operation of the Korg ASIO driver and prevent reading.
