An excellent device at a very fair price
on 16 December 2014
This is a really excellent product that does exactly what it was purchased to do; plugs in to various of my devices (Sherwood audio amp, Beosound Century, JVC boomboxes, etc.) and has been in use more or less constantly since I received it.
Sound quality is good, even through my B&O Century - which can be intolerant of digital source material. Dynamic range impressed me as I simply hadn't expected the device to be as good and it's well enough built for the price with a pleasant piano black top surface and four non-slip rubber feet on the underside that prevent it from shuffling around in use.
If I were asked to mention any slight disadvantages of this device, I should think that the lack of an internal battery may be an issue for some, but I did buy it knowing that it needed an external supply and as such, it's perfect for me.
It comes with a 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo output socket and a lead that connects from that socket to a pair of RCA input sockets on devices so equipped, I've also tried it with DIN-standard equipment and the B&O-specific connection on the Century. In all cases the device provides crystal clear audio that has a good stereo image and turns in a performance indistinguishable from that provided when connecting the same devices to my HOX or the laptop by cable.
