Just wondering, how can i know if a DAC is good or bad, is there a way to Benchmark?

I remember using some kind of software from Speaker Output to Line In to compare, but not sure it that was testing the DAC or something else.

Those results are pretty good, but keep in mind that if you are using the DAC to directly drive a pair of headphones (that is without an amp), performance will be worse when the actual load is hooked up. In that case, you would want to test by splitting the output between the line in and headphones to simulate normal use more directly.

If you're just using the device as a DAC (and have a separate amp or powered speakers), then you are basically done.
