In USB, I noted a rise of high frequencies, with very dry bass, which gives a spectacular and detailed listening side, but lacks naturalness. Everything seems faster, more punchy, but lacks fluidity and flesh.
In optics I found the result much better, but basically the difference with a direct optical link without the interface is so tenuous that blind I do not think to make the difference.

For the rest the device seems well designed, practical to use, serious gear. Probably useful for connecting many sources to each other. It may be wise if we reclocke the DAC with a BNC cable, I could not test, my DAC not having this possibility.

So, I would say that the product is useful if we really need the USB and we need to "shake" a system deemed too soft. Otherwise, I do not recommend.

Sound of the hammer

02.04.2016
I use the part as a USB SPDIF interface between Macbook and DSP monitors. The clarity in the heights is sensational. I had never had so little digital cymbals. Spatial representation and transparency also exceptionally good. I would have considered such a clear effect against my Halide bridge with external power supply not possible. The USB port works by the way in both directions. Annoying: Upsampling is not possible via USB, you have to make the computer. At this price incomprehensible. Too bad that a switching power supply was installed, is just smaller and cheaper and for all countries to use, clearly, a high-quality power supply with transformer but probably had brought something more, there is. Also already contributions in the net. In any case, an external power supply with some skill is quite easy to connect, I will try it.
The price is - for a USB interface, if you only use it as such - of course high, for the quality but appropriate and presumably even unrivaled. The processing seems to be good. The ugly LowBudget look will frighten hifi freaks.
