If you are a fan of listening to your digital tracks, but you prefer the analog sound from the old days for your tunes, and you like your gadgets blinged out, there’s a new digital audio converter for you. The converter is called the uDAC-2 Signature Gold Edition (or SGE.)
The 24-bit/96kHZ uDAC-2 converter is covered in 24K gold, and has a Swarovski crystal on the volume knob. The front and back panels of the device are stainless steel, rounding out its luxurious styling. The converter has a USB port for power and connectivity to your computer. Sound from your computer is then converted into analog signals and sent to your headphones.
The device has an audiophile grade USB connector for input. Outputs include analog RCA, coaxial RCA digital output, and a 3.5mm headphone port. The uDAC-2 SGE has a double jitter reduction mechanism and an oversampling filter. You can buy the SGE version of the converter right now for $399 (USD).
