Specifically labeled as S/PDIF DAC is because this DAC only accepts S/PDIF signal in either TOSLINK Optical or 75Ω Digital Coaxial inputs. This type of DAC is fun and affordable; they are seldom expensive. Normal usage of such DAC is for converting digital-only audio outputs of some TVs or AppleTV to analog, in order to feed it to amps. But we mentioned something about CD in front. Because what makes this little DAC fantastic is its capability of outputing some beautiful notes from any regular DVD or Bluray player as long as they sport a S/PDIF out! This DAC makes them become reasonably awesome CD transports by by-passing those inferior D-A conversion circuits normally present in consumer players, and going through a higher quality of D-A conversion within it. The results? Deeper bass, better separation, sweeter vocals; CD music can hardly sounds more musical, with just a regular player! This DAC uses a MS8416 chip for S/PDIF receiver and MS4344 DAC chip for the D-A conversion. They are alternatives to Cirrus Logic chips that are similar in model numbers. Like a CS8416 from Cirrus Logic, MS8416 suuports audio sampling rates up to 192 kHz. 88.2kHz and 176.4kHz are also supported in this DAC. And similarly, as an alternative to the CS4344 applications in such similar DAC, MS4344 operates at 3.3V and 5V with a clean and transparent sound signature. AMS1117 is used as a voltage regulator, allowing smooth consistent power to drive the DAC. After various in-house prototyping and selection, QA specifically chooses and finalises on the use of Nichicon MUSE Audio capacitor in this DAC appplication to push the level of sound performance this DAC is capable of. MUSE is the highest grade in Nichicon line of capacitors in audio application, and in this instance, it definitely shows! A USB-DC cable is included to power the DAC. Plug it to any nearby spare USB port of DVD/Bluray player, if any, and save the space and electricity of powering it with another power adapter.It is that easy, simple and efficient to drive it. Get one and have fun. We are very sure you will not be disappointed and guaranteed you a great sound, if not we offer 100% refund without question. *We recommend connection through digital coaxial with good quality cable.
