A fancy PCIe sound card for those who are interested in such things, and I fully accept that not everyone is but this does get a fair number of extremely enthusiastic reviews so I've ordered one. Pricing seems very volatile so I wouldn't wait too long and it has only reached this price once before.
'As far as I'm concerned, in terms of sound output quality, the EVGA NU Audio is a true hi-fi product. Many audiophiles won't be all too eager to accept that given its PCIe-card form factor, but that doesn't change the fact that it performs better than many established and well-liked external DAC/amps.'
