    Schitt's flagship DAC uses a not-for-audio DAC chip.

    Just read that review - yes, ticks the boxes. The following nails the key aspect,

    Quote:
    When listening to this recording I feel like I'm submerged in an ocean of sound where I'm weightlessly drifting through an immense space enveloped by sound coming at me from many directions. Quite a remarkable feat, given I was listening to speakers, rather than headphones.
    This is all about having the low level detail make sense, the brain integrates, successfully, all the aural information being fed to it - and you enter a magic world, .

    Remarkably, even rough as guts recordings can do this - simply because the consistency of the sound information is good enough for the ear/brain to unravel it all ...

    AKM's new "VERITA" AK4490EQ 120dB 768kHz/32-bit 2ch New Generation Premium DAC

    The real point is whether this DAC overcomes to a larger degree a common problem of S-D chips, that of loss of low level detail and treble quality unless they are heavily conditioned, exercised before doing serious listening.

    It seems to have a variation on the switched capacitor filtering circuitry at the output, which may be a key factor in perceived improvement - rather than anything to do with nominal number of bits.

    AKM's new "VERITA" AK4490EQ 120dB 768kHz/32-bit 2ch New Generation Premium DAC

    I stay with my TDA1540 (Revox B225), Human hearing only capable of 18 bit. Technically and matematichly most 24 bit dacs deliver 18-20 bit in a lab. So dont see much of the advantage to change. but nice to see such a new tech DAC.

    Onkyo SE-300PCIe sound card review part I.

    The latest drivers are here but as of this writing they are the same as the ones on the CD-ROM that ship with the card. DS51P102302A is just a setting tweak to the Creative Alchemy library.

    The card has been discontinued. Windows 8 is supported with the current drivers. There is no implicit support for Windows 8.1, but typically new drivers are not needed with the updated OS.
