The new Micromega MyDAC is the perfect link between your computer and your hi-fi system. It’s an asynchronous 24/192 DAC that delivers a world-class performance/price ratio. It delivers a wide soundstage, well-controlled bass, and accurate high-frequencies. Your desktop or nearly any other digital system will sound demonstrably better with the MyDAC. With both USB and TosLink inputs, virtually any digital source can be improved by the addition of the MyDAC. A 4- position horizontal rotary switch with anodized aluminum wheel allows easy selection between STBY – USB – COAX – OPTO.
The MyDAC's USB input works in asynchronous mode up to 24-bits/192kHz and accepts USB audio class 1.0 and USB audio class 2.0 modes without any driver implementation for Mac, and a with a custom Micromega driver for PC. USB asynchronous mode means practically no jitter thanks to two very low jitter master clocks (22.5792 MHz for multiple of 44.1kHz and 24.5760 MHz for multiple of 48kHz), with dedicated low noise power supplies, for the optimum performance from your digital files.
This is the only DAC at this price with a low-noise, designed-for-audio power supply.In fact, there are two dedicated power supplies -- one for the digital section, and one for the audio section -- which deliver customized currents tailored to each section's needs. And the MyDAC uses no capacitors in either the audio signal path or the power supply path, so there is minimal electrical interference.

iFi iDSD Nano
There's just something about the MyDAC that stands out from that crowd. If you're thinking about the Peachtree unit, be sure to give this one a listen first. While the iFi unit really shines with DSD streams, the MyDAC wins with PCM.
Oh, and none of the clicking or popping reported by others appeared on this unit. Hooked to Mac via USB, it's flawless.
Removed one star for complete lack of customer support. The website says, "Contact your dealer".
I'd like this even more if it had more inputs and outputs, including balanced. (This is what was good about the Cambridge DAC Magic.)
THe unit has developed a very short, but loud static blip that sounds every time the unit picks up a new stream from one of its inputs. Not a disaster, but very unpleasant.
