Got mine in today, no cable. There's space for the cable in the box as well, but it's not there :c.
Build quality overall seems good. Nicely rounded edges, nothing sharp, volume wheel turns with a consistent resistance.
Will do some testing later tonight as well.
//edit After a bit of fiddling around, I finally got the drivers working (Windows 10, if anyone was wondering). Make sure you plug the device in and let Windows find and install its own drivers. Then go and install CEntrance's drivers. Then set your sound device in Windows' sound control panel.
Funny thing was that when I first got it installed and selected the DACport Slim, I got some weird static/grumbly noise through my headphones. Music played came out as pure garbled static, as well as system sounds. Uninstalled, re-installed, and rebooted a couple times until it worked. Still haven't rebooted now that it's working, though. Not sure if it's just my computer as this is a custom built PC of mine. I'll try my laptop later this weekend. //edit 2: Turns out the device is a bit picky on which USB ports it uses.
First impressions: Definitely a small bump in bass. Device runs a bit toasty. Seems slightly crisper as well, but not sure if that's placebo or legit.
Keep in mind that I'm comparing this to a motherboard which costs basically the same amount as this device.

Could you provide some clarification as to what you mean by "a small bump in bass"? Is bass louder than it should be? Quieter? Distorted?

It still feels tight and control, but it definitely seems to be punchier. Punchier as in slightly more vibes on your ears when the wubs are going.
I only have one pair of decent headphones though, so your experience may differ depending on your set of cans.
