I just got this email from a happy customer.
It pretty much sums it up!

Dear hotaudio40,

Just to let you know know that the Dac Destroyer is continuing to amaze me with its performance!
How can something so small produce results like that?
Any news on the Nos Dac Pures? I want to buy one as soon as possible.
All my friends are going to order dacs after listening to mine.
Thanks
Mxxx

The simple truth is that while most DACs sound good, they all seem to be missing something.

What they are missing is a 'warm', 'natural' sonic characteristic known as 'listenability'.

'Listenability' is defined as:

1) A measure of the ease or pleasure in listening to something, such as music.

2) Being such that listening is pleasurable.

3) Easy or pleasant to listen to.

I think this DAC would be rated very high on a 'listenability' scale.

I would rate it 4.8 out of 5.

How did I achieve this level of 'listenability' ?

Well this DAC has been evolving for several years. And throughout the years, it has undergone several changes and modifications.
In fact it is continuously updated as each one is built and soldered completely by hand. 

Here is a link to a series of videos showing how I make each one of these DACs.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tf0dMxuudTc

And after each DAC is built, I personally test and run them for several hours to assure quality and functionality.

My quality standards are very high as I personally listen to each DAC, and let me tell you, that is the part I enjoy the most!

You could buy another DAC that was mass produced on an assembly line by robots and machines.

But that DAC won't have a soul.

And it won't have that special 'magical' sonic quality that all my products have.

Get one and find out for yourself what you've been missing.

Use FOOBAR2000 to get the most out of this DAC.
http://www.foobar2000.org/

FOOBAR2000 reduces jitter so much when used with this DAC that it performs as good as ultra-high-end DACs selling for several times as much.

The results even blew me away.


Feedback from my customers:

"
this thing is awesome!!!!
 in every respect it improves across the board. My  stereo is now devastating . I have a seperate PC for video files connected to an av amp so that is next, and then there at least 2 setups in the house for laptops with half decent Cambridge Soundworks sub and satellite units that will also benefit from the same treatment .


I'll be in touch ,cheers!!
