The Dr. DAC nano from ESI is a 2 channel digital to analog (DAC) converter that connects to the USB port of a computer. The DAC is perfect for Windows and Mac OS X users who want better sound output over what their computer's internal converter offers.

The digital source can have up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution, while the output of the unit can be either analog line level, or optical S/PDIF via a mini plug optical transmitter. The analog output can also power most consumer headphones.
