The Micro DAC from M-Audio is a USB digital-to-analog (DAC) converter with two outputs�one analog and one digital. Taking the form of a slim USB stick, the Micro DAC plugs right into your computer or laptop, and, once there, transforms your digital signal into audio of a higher quality than a typical headphone jack. With the Micro DAC, you plug your headphones into the port on the side; for high-impedance headphones, you can flip a gain switch to boost the analog signal, thereby driving the volume to higher levels. An optical output can transfer pure digital signal from the Micro DAC to other digital sources.

All of the outputs have an individual level control, as well as input selector switches, a mono switch, and signal and overload LED indicators. A set of 4 TRS foldback outputs allow you to daisy-chain multiple units.
