The sound is clean and clear with absolutely no noise.

You could use the MUSE's digital outputs, bypassing its DAC, if you think your receiver's DAC is better.

Overall, it was a very good deal for me to upgrade my "PC audio" easily with very low cost.

I reviewed this Muse DAC with a Marantz receiver and Infinity Beta 40 floor standing speakers. I wasn't able to use it or compare it with my Parasound and Musical Fidelity V-DAC gear (sorry!) since I bought this DAC for my dad.

The DACs in receivers are just plain awful, so this Muse DAC is used for playing FLAC and to stream internet radio from a laptop. This DAC had been burned in for a couple of months before reviewing it and I only used FLAC files for the review. I used the on-board DAC only even though this unit also has a digital out feature so you can feed the digital signal to a receiver or other DAC that doesn't have a USB input

I know a lot of people are going to find this offensive, but the Muse DAC blows away the DAC in the Marantz. Seriously, it's not even close. The Muse is so much cleaner. Bass is surprisingly deep for not having a real power supply (it's powered via USB), the sound stage is better, treble and midrange are a lot cleaner, and the best part is the Muse reveals way more detail. It's also got a sound that's non-fatiguing, which means it's not crazy bright and unpleasant to listen to for a few hours.

My only complaint is that the Muse doesn't faithfully reproduce dynamics (there's not a HUGE volume difference between intentionally recorded loud and soft sounds), but still no where near as much as the Marantz CRUSHES dynamics so that ALL instruments and vocals sound as if they're recorded at the exact same volume. I suspect the reason for this is in the USB conversion chip as my Musical Fidelity V-DAC did the same thing until I bought an M2Tech USB to S/PDif converter. For some reason most USB converters reduce dynamics.

A guy at work has a very high end version of what I've got. I've paired the MUSE (actually made by glow-audio.com and re-branded) with the FiiO Monte Blanc headphone amp.

The amp I bought mainly to drive larger headphones, but it also provides a cleaner, fuller bottom end which I like.

After adding this DAC to the mix, I'm really surprised at the difference. The sound is much crisper and cleaner. The difference really comes out on the higher frequencies. A hi-hat sounds almost as if it's in front of you instead of off in the distance with a towel over it.

The enhancements are not dramatic. If you don't mind listening to music on your phone with some cheap earphones, you may not appreciate this. But if you are the type that focuses in on different instruments and appreciates the dynamic range of good music, just get this. You won't regret it, guaranteed. If you turn out to hate it, I'll buy you a slurpee.

Ordered this a couple of weeks ago for a cheap birthday present to myself. I have it paired with a Ocean Bravo headphone tube amp thru my dell computer with sennheiser 580 headphones. WOW. Only been using it a short time but I must say the openiness, detail, warmth and overall musicality of my setup is just amazing. Upbelievable upgrade for $30. do yourself a favor and purchase this baby.........................

It's hard in the audiophile world to cut through placebo and pompousness, left and right you'll see people with radically different recommendations while at the same time you'll see different DACs with radically different prices, and there isn't anything significant that's easy to glean from them that justifies the price. Studies into DACs have shown that as long as it's external, you're getting all the benefit you're going to get, and at $25 this DAC is well-built, looks great, has plenty of connectivity options and really improves audio over stock! Honestly, if you're looking for a good DAC, stop here, this is as much as you'll ever need to spend.

Here is unit that performs very well at an exceptional price. I use it to bypass the crappy sound card in my HP laptop.(BTW, all laptop sound cards are junk.) The Muse simply plugs into a USB port on your laptop with the supplied cable. You then plug the other end into the Muse USB input. Next, using a QUALITY set of RCA to RCA cables, you connect them to the RCA output jacks on the Muse then into any QUALITY pair of powered speaker's and you are good to go. No software or electrical power are needed. The only thing you need to do with you laptop is bring up the sound card properties and turn off the internal card. I am using the Muse Dac connected through a pair of Acoustic Research RCA cables,Acoustic Research PR131 Pro II Stereo RCA Audio Cable 6ft outputting to a pair of M-AUDIO powered speakersM-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Active Studio Monitor Speakers. I could not be happier with the sound I am getting. Streaming radio stations sound clean and clear with no more spitty, over the top treble. My CD's,i-tunes tracks and CDR's of my lp's played through my laptop sound fuller, with natural treble and better defined bass. The Burr Brown PCM-2704 conversion chip used in the Muse is a fine performer. They have done an excellent job with the implementation of this chip in the circuit. Plus they put it all in a solid metal bullet proof case. As a bonus, there is a headphone jack on the Muse that will drive most phones with decent, but not excellent sound. You might want to stick to low impedance headphones,though. For about $170.Read more ›
