CYP AU-D150 DAC and USB Converter


The CYP AU-D150 looks like an interesting little DAC.  It offers only mini-USB and optical inputs, but outputs can do simultaneous analogue (RCA) and digital (optical).  It’s both a USB-optical converter and a DAC!  A neat trick.

There is currently no Australian distributor but the UK RRP is GBP95.
