5.0 out of 5 stars Best buy this year in audio, 23 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Digital to Analog Audio Converter - 192kHz/24bit Optical and Coaxial DAC SPDIF - TOSlink / Coaxial to Stereo Left/Right RCA - FiiO D03K Taishan (Electronics)
Like others, I took a chance on this. In my system it converts a digital stream from an Airport Express into analogue audio and sends it via it's RCA phono sockets to a Arcam Delta amp and speakers in our study. This is the best that system has ever sounded and easily competes for clarity and precision with the Roksan Kandy / Dacmagic 100 combo in the main room. I have set it up with the Airport Express providing the power via its spare USB connection which saves a plug in a quite confined space so all the better. Two tiny leds indicate red for power on and blue for the lock to the digital signal.

It has mini usb, coaxial and toslink inputs. RCA phono outputs. A rocker switch selects coax or toslink. The mini usb takes the wall wart power input or as described takes power from your PC, usb hub or Airport Express.

At this price it is an astonishing buy, tiny - just big enough to accept the interconnects - and unobtrusive, superb sound and well built in a metal casing.

Curious. I thought the Airport Express had analogue out from the mini-jack socket? But if the sound quality is noticeably better this way - then I must give it a go!

:-)

Fiio is incredible quality anyway.

The Airport express (and I think Apple MacBooks) has a 3.5mm audio jack that functions as analogue line out and also optical out using a small adapter - I bought a StarTech TOSLink to mini TOSLink adapter for this purpose, only a few pounds.
