Now that I finally have this thing in my hands and have listened extensively to it, all I can say is I can't believe this thing is only $75. The headphone output is considerably stronger than the UCA202's, with absolutely no noise. Everything is clean, flat, and accurate sounding on my Ultrasone Pro 550s. The build quality is great, everything is metal except the two toggle switches. It comes with four little rubber feet you can attach to the bottom so it doesn't move around on your desk. Two more great features are the bass and gain switches. The bass boost is tasteful - not boomy but definitely present. It really fills out certain music or games if your headphones aren't naturally bassy. I find myself using it more than I thought I would. And the gain switch is great, allowing for a much wider range on the amp. I only have lower impedance headphones at the moment so it's set to Low, but I bet the High setting will come in handy whenever I get something like HD650s.
When you consider most other quality DAC/Amp desktop combos are in the $150 and up range, you realize what a value this little guy is. But don't let its diminutive size fool you - this thing packs a punch and will make a big improvement over generic computer audio or entry level stuff like the UCA202. A great purchase and highly recommended.
When I found out the E10K was available, I immediately bought it, and I have no regrets.
It goes miles ahead of my on-board DAC from my motherboard, which had RealTek ALC898 chipset, which is regarded as one of the better on-board motherboard DAC's. Sound is A LOT more crisp, you can finally distinguish the mids and all the different instruments playing, and the bass is slightly accentuated with the +3 db bass boost switch (I use it, and I prefer it over no bass-boost). It brings my ATH-M50's back to life!
I would agree with other reviewers here that the E10K that the sound is warm overall, yet crisp.
It comes in a very small package, and it is rather light weight. However the build quality on this little thing is amazing! It feels super sturdy, and the volume knob has the right amount of resistance to it, and feels solid.
One slight problem that I have with it is that the included micro-usb cable is too short for my use (desktop PC), so I have to buy a longer micro-usb for decent cable management. But it still doesn't take away from the fact that this is the best bang-for-your-buck DAC/Amp combo.
For the price I am extremely happy with my purchase and would do it again.
