    When I listen to music on my computer, I use headphones and my O2 amp.

    I´ve been having more and more trouble with one channel cutting out and a bad hum; so I decided to splurge and ordered a Speedlink Vigo USB DAC off ebay for €6 :) Other than the hum and channel cutting out, I am perfectly happy with the quality of the on board sound. As long as this thing sounds that good, I´ll be happy.

    I let you know what I think about it when it gets here :)

    Well, my new €6 DAC has arrived and it sounds fine. I haven´t and won´t be doing any AB testing ( :) ), but for listening with headphones on my computer, it´s fine.

    I wasn´t expecting it to sound any worse than my cell or the onboard sound from my computer, and it doesn´t :)

    I think I´ll buy another one, in case this one stops working.

    Well, the headphone jack broke already.

    Looks like you do have to spend more than €6 for a DAC ;)
