Default Bang for the Buck USB DAC - Fubar ??

Read as many threads as a could find on DACs here and also some over at the asylum. I'm looking to improve CD playback and don't have a boatload of money. All I have now is a $89 DVD/CD player.

I thought maybe a USB DAC for use with my laptop would be the ticket. I don't want to spend more than maybe $150.

Reading a bunch, it seems like the Fubar II USB DAC might be a good pricepoint.

Can anyone confirm that this will indeed be better than my cheap CD/DVD player?

Would there be any others in that price range I should consider?

Although I wouldn't be adverse to a kit, I haven't found one in that price range either except maybe that Chinese stuff where I can't even figure out the models on the website.

I should have kits ready for my USB DAC pretty soon and it should be in your price range. It does what you want and more, check out the thread on head-fi. You can also use it as a DAC for your cd player if it has a digital output...
