This is where I would post my impressions of this DAC via USB on Windows 10... If I had it. Sadly, it was tendered to USPS from DHL 4 days ago and has not moved since.
So it turns out that DHL just sucks at tracking. Got my unit today and can confirm that there is at -least- a one second delay in audio over USB on Windows 10, if not two. Not the worst problem in the world as it can be ironed out by a proper driver, though admittedly we'll have to consider ourselves very lucky if that ever happens. For now, I'll break out the optical cable. That aside, this unit really does sound good and clean. I had to reduce the low side on my Foobar EQ because it made me realize how muddy my settings were. Bluetooth pairing was a piece of cake as well. Also sounds great. Volume control works on my iPhone, for what that's worth. The only real issue I've had was my own fault. I thought I had a defective unit because every time I turned it on, I would get blinking lights and no audio. Turns out I had the volume knob turned all the way up, and as a safety precaution it doesn't output audio when turned on at max volume for obvious reasons.
If your motherboard lacks SPDIF, I recommend an ASUS Xonar DGX sound card. It's PCIE x1 and can be had for $30.
