Got a new toy and well.....
...... if you are looking for a new soundcard.
...... if you are someone looking for something small, extremely portable, very competively priced. Something that will work with PC, Mac and some JellyBean devices.
Then you want the UD100 USB.
Employing the ESS Sabre ES9023 DAC the UD100 is a fantastic little bit of kit.

UD100 for sale - http://forum.lowyat....pic/2449848/all
Cost $59USD + $3USD shipping worldwide.
Ordered 2 UD100s on the 16th of December and even with all the christmas postage it still turned up on the 27th of December. Making shipping times from Malaysia more than acceptable. The two DACs turned up in perfect working order.
Will be trying it on my SGSII with it JB rom and hopefully I can get it going. With it giving my Audioengine D1 USB DAC more than a run for its money this is amazing. There is some very minimal background noise which I noticed when the output was maxed and I was using my 16ohm 118db Audiofly AF56m canalphones. They're stupidly sensitive and the background noise is the exact same level as that of my D1. Something i didn't know my D1 had while I was using my AKG Q701s apparently 105dB wasn't quite sensitive enough to pick it up haha.
Either way for $62 shipped to your door this tiny little dac is fantastic and the 2v rms line out makes it perfect for analougue amplification. Either too a headphone amp or speakers. At the moment though it is more than acceptibly driving un amped my AKG Q701s and my AF56ms
Cannot stop listening to this in fact dad has yelled at me about 3 times already
