The Micca OriGen G2 USB DAC is an external digital to analog converter - very similar to a sound card in function, but removed from the noisy electrical environment inside a computer. It connects to a computer via USB and provides 1/8- and 1/4-inch audio outputs, along with an adapter cable for left and right RCA plugs. Switches next to the outputs allow for headphone or line-level output, along with an optional 10dB gain.

A volume knob is present on top of the OriGen G2, and it is ideal to set the volume in your OS to maximum and utilize the physical control for the best quality. There are also LED status indicators above the knob, and the USB and power inputs are located on the back.

Micca lists this DAC as having ASIO and WASAPI Push/Event support, which is important for audio recording.

Micca's made a nice, affordable USB DAC in the OriGen G2. It draws power from the USB port so installation is as easy as just plugging it in to your PC. Output is selectable via switch between the front headphone outputs and the rear line-out. The line-out is also affected by the volume control, but do be aware that it is not amplified--you will need to connect to either a separate amplified or powered speakers. The headphone output sounds very good and has pretty decent power. There is a high/low gain switch that should cover most needs, but if your headphones are particularly difficult to drive it may be worth looking into a more powerful amplifier unit with dedicated power input.

Note: Comes with 3.5mm to RCA cable, micro USB cable, and quick start guide.
