    Default FS: Yulong "Sabre" DA8 DAC & headphone amp

    VGC and PWO.

    Can be run as a 'pure' DAC, or as a DAC plus headphone amp (just depress the volume button to switch between modes).

    RCA and XLR stereo outputs.

    Very nice indeed!

    See very extensive review here -- https://www.head-fi.org/threads/revi...ce-dac.673033/
    The Conclusion of which reads ....
    "CONCLUSION
    What else can I possibly say? This review has gone on way too long already. The Yulong DA8 is supremely capable, among the absolute best DACs I've yet heard, pricing be damned. The headphone amp is good enough to be a serious tool rather than a mere bonus feature, and all the other features add up to make it quite the compelling device. But don't be fooled - the heart of the DA8 is excellent sound quality, and all the features are just a bonus. It would stand on its own, and justify the price, even as a pure DAC with no extras. I'd happily put the DA8 up against any sanely priced DAC and expect it to have a good chance of coming out on top. Once again Yulong comes highly recommended. "
