    It's a DAC, as you said. Connect digital source via RCA, XLR, or optical in, get analogue out via RCA or XLR. That goes to a pre-amp or integrated.

    Not much info about it but seems it has 4 K-grade Burr Brown PCM63 D/A + Ultra Analog SPDIF receiver inside, good find!

    I remember that DAC it was the little brother to the one they made that was actually pyramid shaped.

    I doubt that this is an EAD (Enlightened Audio Designs) unit? I owned an EAD Ovation 5.1 preamp, and it looks nothing like the one you show. They also had an Encore model along with the Signature model.
