New Emotiva Big Ego 32 BIT / 384K USB DIGITAL TO ANALOG CONVERTER DAC with SE Upgrade. The quality of modern digital audio files is really amazing – as long as you have the right equipment to play them through. Unfortunately, the hardware in most computers isn’t really optimized for audio playback, so it sets limits on your listening experience. Luckily, there’s an easy solution….

The Emotiva Big Ego USB DAC can turn the mediocre audio coming from your computer into something that actually sounds great. From ordinary streaming videos and MP3 files to high resolution audio downloads; everything sounds better when you have a Big Ego. High resolution downloads sound truly awesome, CD quality files sound great, and even lossy streaming audio will sound better than you ever imagined possible.

You know those hi-res digital downloads that everyone is talking about? You were probably thinking the hi-res digital audio snobs were full of it because you couldn’t tell a difference, even when you were using your fancy reference quality headphones. You asked yourself: “What do they have that I don’t? Magical Ears?” Turns out it was actually pretty simple. It was just a Big Ego. Literally.

No offense to your computer, but with just a simple headphone amp and a low-cost DAC jammed into the case with a bunch of digital circuitry, audio was an afterthought. The Big Ego’s precision USB interface, low jitter clocks, audiophile grade DAC, and direct-coupled audio path, paired with our high performance headphone amplifier, will make your hi-res audio files sound their best.

The Big Ego is so easy to use that you don’t need to be an audiophile know-it-all to set it up. Since your computer sees your Big Ego as a sound card, it can play anything you can play on your computer, from MP3 files and video sound tracks, up to the latest 32/384k hi-res music files. The Big Ego even offers three different selectable digital over-sampling filters, to fine tune the sound just the way you want it. There’s even a sophisticated headphone blend mode to make your headphones sound more like speakers in a normal room.

Feel like using your Big Ego to play your computer audio over your existing home audio or hi-fi system? No problem. The Big Ego will convert your computer audio into high quality digital or analog audio streams that are compatible with virtually any sound system.

With a Big Ego, you’re in Control.
