I have had my DAC 80 for about 8 months now. I use it in a classic, high end, speaker based system in a properly designed room. ( see original post well down this list).
I noticed this is back for another drop at an even cheaper price and am letting some other hifi friends know about this.
Reading through the comments below, it appears that many are unhappy with the remote (fully agree - it is junk), and unhappy with the power down (never noticed as I don't bother powering down). Not many recent comments on the sound though so I thought I should pipe in again.
This is a really good sounding DAC. Read this whole thread and you'll see that most (not all) informed posters agreed that the DAC 80 sounds really good.
For the 250.00 asking price, if you are most concerned with having good sound, this is worth considering.
