ACCORDING to a test on head-fi this $500 gadget delivers high quality audio from your USB port. The CEntrance DACport plugs into a USB port and is recognized as USB audiocard. It delivers analog audio to a standard headphone jack.
CEntrance describes itself as “founded in 2000, CEntrance develops, licenses and distributes cutting-edge audio products worldwide. CEntrance is known for its co-development work with audio industry leaders such as Waves, Benchmark, Lavry, and Mackie.”. Never heard of them before.
I am going to put this on my gadget wishlist. Maybe something to pickup from ebay next year.
