Hifimediy ES9023+TE7022 24/96 USB Dac
 
Seems quite good for $39 plus shipping :-)

HifiMeDiy Sabre USB DAC. 96khz/24bit - ES9023+TE7022

I made sure I bought one (from ebay) before spreading the word. Suspect there will be a few more of us ordering one very soon!

Ordered too :) strange thing is I get no confirmation, nothing. Have you?

Gets its power from the USB bus and it has a noisy reg....when you change that it could be a very good DAC but then it is not cheap anymore. You see only a few design choices can make a vast difference. ODAC is no comparison as it was designed with quality as the most important parameter (not cost).

I jumped on one of those a few days ago. Same receiver/DAC-combo as the ODAC. Don't expect it to be anywhere near, but would be fun to see what it can do.. ;)

I just received mine. Its amazingly small and good :D
Despite powered by usb, it seems to have more dynamics than my WM8741, 12V powered dac.
The best $39 I spent for a long time :D

Just ordered one for fun. :) Thanks for the heads-up.

He lists 1V (rms) maximum into 30R on the output, which would still be 10 times what I need for full loudness on my 32R 114dB/V AKG K550s. I'm guessing that he must be leaving off the 220R series-resistor low pass filters the ODAC has on the output lines to get that, for better or worse:

How long have you waited? I ordered mine on Sept 4th and no single electron of confirmation...

Ordered mine around the same time. Got confirmation yesterday that it was shipped. Got a Direct-DAC on the way in the same shipment. Can't wait to see how they stack up to the ODAC.

Arrived in 2 weeks to France (by swiss post).
You receive an email confirmation when order, and the tracking numbera few days later. Send a mail to mail@hifimediy.com if trouble. It's a small business, but they are quite responsive.
