The mystery revolves around NwAvGuy is still unknown when he was suddenly back on the scenes two years ago.

ODAC and O2 which is NwAvGuy design with 2 motherboard different but when put into production the company JDS Labs has created a shell capable of simultaneously contain 2 boards more compact products. However, users still have the ability to use its own amplifier ODAC and higher output, or use another amplifier O2 with 1 soundcard.
To test the ability to handle the ODAC, I tried it with 2 vegetarian plug headphones earbud high resistance is YUIN PK1 and Senheiser HD600, after it was composited with the deskamp Darkvoice SE336. The set up is extremely simple when ODAC is plug & play device, users do not need to install additional drivers as a DAC/AMP others.
First perceived soundstage (soundstage) is extremely spacious and airy, reconstructed 3D space very well, delamination instrument sounds extremely clear and spotlessly clean, no noise. It is capable of handling the “matchbox” makes his surprise when it showed all the sounds that are recorded in the song. There are some minor errors of their previous recordings can not get out, but when through ODAC has recreated completely, very specific and detailed.
When the pair ODAC with Darkvoice 336SE to pull a pretty discerning headphones: Sennheiser HD600, the result makes me feel completely satisfied. This combo could say seemed to be all the power and ability to re-create the HD600 sounds great. Compact bass strips, circles, power, hitting deep and ultra-fine speed control, smooth mid, treble detail tension also emerged. A point not to be missed is the impression of a spacious soundstage, imaging and clean background, no noise.
