Default China's "No Name" DAC?

Hi, new guy here....

Got a Korg DS-DAC-100m in february at a nice price(ca $70) on sale, running it on Win10, with fb2k-cofigured to play PCM 24/192, DSD128 - native. Best sound i had!

For my second PC i am looking for a cheap "USB" device, it is a very "weak" PC: Intel Atom 1.66 GHz, 1GB RAM... so, minimum CPU "load...

At the high end of my budget, this seems interesting:

1pc DAC 384KHZ/32bit Module XMOS Decoder Board PCM5102 TDA1308 USB Decoding | eBay

Anybody have/had it? Knows anything about BQ, SQ?

At the low end of my budget:

PCM2704 USB DAC to S/PDIF Sound Card Decoder Board 3.5mm Analog Output F/PC K9 | eBay

Both have spdf out, so i can run it through my old, but nice, LiTe DAC-AH (modified: DAC chip --> line out, bypassing OP amps). But the "expensive" one is a DAC in it's own, maybe way better than LiTe?

Any input is welcome, or some reference to earlier posts or links.


Well... I used the search engine... and found a whole thread about the XMOS board, and how to tweak it.... maybe i should have done that first, sorry - learning...

Ordered a "AS9227 + PCM5102A USB DAC" board without case from china, for $27 US, i can live with a "mistake", but hopefully it's going to sound OK, even nice....

Delivery between 5'th July - 8'th of august(!)... they do give a "precise" delivery, lol!

So, that's going to be my second USB-DAC, for my "secondary" PC, PCM only - that's OK, since that PC "strugles" trying to play back native DSD.

Gonna search the web for info/tweaks on that board....
