Lightning USB Digital to Analog Converternighthawk

Retail Price: $1,295

The Lightning DAC was designed to provide high-quality music reproduction from today’s digital sources. Whether from a computer, handheld music players, cable or satellite boxes, disc players, or streaming from cloud-based storage, digital data streams suffer from distortions caused by jitter (timing errors in processing the digital information) and the poor quality of built-in digital converters. An outboard digital to analog converter (DAC) is the solution to these problems.
