In the past few months, I have become increasingly interested in high quality sound equipment that could be hooked up to my PC to enhance sound quality. Most of my searching took me to expensive headphones, amplifiers, and DACs. After listening to the audio setup of the Sennheiser booth at CES, I became even more interested. I stumbled upon the Objective2 headphone amplifier created by NwAvGuy and shortly after that found that he was hard at work on the Objective DAC. The design for the ODAC was finished last month, and according to retailer JDS Labs, it should be available sometime this month. The blog post features extensive testing information that compares the O2 and ODAC to units that cost several times as much, and the performance of the cheaper devices is extremely close to the more expensive alternatives. JDS Labs is only one retailer that will carry the device, and it will have three options of ODAC available for purchase, an assembled PCB board, a standalone DAC, and a O2 and ODAC combo.
