Hi guys,

I've recently been thinking about having a DIY DAC built, but the only one I know is the Alien USB DAC (or Guzzler's for that matter). What other DIY USB DACs are around? And secondly, how good is the Alien DAC? ;D

Cheers,

Nanoha

And a few others I am forgetting. ;)

As far as how good the Alien DAC is:

It's not something you would use to drive headphones directly but other then that it's pretty OK.
