"Overall I think JDS kind of has it nailed here. I loved the build quality on my O2, and this product seems to have a nearly identical build, so no complaints here! As far as how to set this product up and getting it to work, it's as simple and basic as it gets, and it was incredibly easy to use. The similarity to the O2 makes it incredibly easy to stack, Overall I found definition very good, especially on the low end, where the sound was very detailed and punchy. I see this as being a good complement to the Objective 2. "

"Perfect size for a standlaone simple DAC, I really like the size and where the input's and outputs are. Plug and play, really wish more products were this easy. The clarity was instantly noticeable, I was actually really surprised at how detailed this little DAC is There are too few standalone DAC's that are this simple, and sound this good."
EL DAC REVIEW | Beta Member, Ostewart
The Objective Line began as an opensource amp design by blogger NwAvGuy. Through years of customer feedback, we've engineered several amps and DACs along the same technical philosophy and design spirit. OL DAC is fundamentally the best value brought to the series, and stacks with Objective2 and/or OL Switcher to form a versatile listening center.
OL DAC provides the basics. Its USB Audio Class 1 engine is plug-and-play with all operating systems, and optical input expands connectivity to home entertainment. Mode is easily selected by a front mounted slider switch.
Differential output of the AK4490EQ DAC is summed by an OPA2227, with DC coupling throughout. Drive any devices you wish, satisfactorily.
OL DAC is powered by the same circuitry developed for our flagship EL DAC, using an AC power adapter and 9 linear regulators to ensure consistent rail voltage and super low ripple. Never be bothered by USB hubs or OS power management configuration again!
