I've had the MyDac for three days and about twelve or so hours in it. I use it in my computer rig which is a MBP with Audirvana Plus with a WireWorld Ultra Violet USB, and Kimber Hero interconnects to Audioengine A5+ speakers. It's a modest setup but fits well in the room I'm using it in. Previously I was using the Audioquest Dragonfly, and Audioengine D2 24/96 wireless DAC. The MyDac beats them both, hands down. Bass is deeper and tighter, vocals clear, highs are smoother, and the mids are much better defined. I was surprised how much different, and better the MyDac was. The body is ASB plastic which is fine with me because the build quality is good and the connectors are excellent quality. The input dial is very solid and the power saving position is very nice as it's an instant on once you move the dial to your chosen input. I do not have any experience with DAC's in the $600 and up range and I'm sure there's a difference as you climb the cost ladder. But at sub $400 I think you may be hard pressed to find something smoother and more listenable than the MyDac. At least for the time being.
