En teknisk artikkel om prosjektet som ligger bak AB-1.2. Det er også et bilde fra lab’en og en god forklaring på asynkron USB. Bildet viser et reelt debug-signal fra firmware i DAC’ens prosessor.

“I bruk er konverteren en fest.”

“Fantastisk lydkvalitet til en utrolig lav pris. Mer er det nesten ikke å si. Bortsett fra ‘løp og kjøp.”

“Den låter luftig, detaljert og dynamisk. Det er lett å plassere instrumenter i lydbildet, og det hele låter rett og slett veldig naturlig, åpent og avslappet. Utvilsomt et meget godt kjøp!”

“Tett, veldefinert bass, nøytral klangkarakter, veloppløst og detaljert uten tegn til skarphet. Kjapp, dynamisk spillestil.”
