I don't like cardboard in the house, so I unboxed outside.
The outer pack was recycled, the inner is very USA, in printing, and smell.
I read the label, and did not think "China"... and I get a least one China Post package a month.

FWIW, my last prescription, filled at Walmart, was "list price" $4107, but I paid $73 with a GoodRx coupon !
Insurance offered to cover 1/15th of it !
Why am I off on this tangent?
The drug was made in China ...

The SDAC-B sounds like my Benchmark, super clean and clear as a mountain sky on a perfect day.
It's almost unnerving to not hear mid-bass thickening like my normal set up has.
Not like taking off sunglasses, but feels more like that little bit of haze has lifted.
More listening to do !

I know this thread is about the SDAC-B, but I just received my 02+SDAC and am using it to feed my HD650s. 

WOW.  The 650s need the extra gain switch engaged to play loudly, but once that's done, DAMN this is a sweet-sounding combo.  Absolutely effortless sound.

I just bought a SMSL SA100 amp.  It's a perfect match for the original SDAC (rca).  I have them both pushing a pair of JBL Control 1x speakers.  My new office rig.  Very happy.    :D
