Furutech GT40a USB DAC
I was looking for a USB DAC to transfer my LP collection to hard drive and came across the GT40a at MCRU.
Although more expensive than DAC’s from the competition, the capabilities of the GT40a is moon and stars others at this price point.
The GT40a is an amazing combination of DAC, ADC, Phono Stage and Headphone Amp in one quite small sturdy box which also happens to look good as well. I was also amazed at the price which is outstanding considering what’s inside.
The quality of the LP recordings are superb at 24/96, and although I haven’t done many recordings at 24/192 yet, the few I have are equally as impressive.
Playback through both speakers and headphones is smooth and easy going with a sound stage that compares well with my rDAC.
The headphone amp also impressed, having enough weight to power my AKG Q701 that I have found some HPA’s unable to cope with.
Overall, this unit is a quality piece of kit, truly the swiss army knife of computer audio.
Would definitely recommend
Great do it all unit
I recently acquired some Meridian DSP5000 active speakers and so needed an ADC for my turntable to direct input into the speakers.The GT40 was ideal and having the phono stage and a headphone stage was a real bonus,All in all a very versatile value for money unit.I would have liked a Benchmark ADC but at £1500 a little steep for me currently so the GT40 is a bargain.
Great packaging for a great product with only a small gripe (just because I am in Italy)
Thanks for the quick shipping and great packaging, really courier proof! It could have been trown from the sixth floor without being damaged.
My only small gripe is the power supply that came with only the UK imperial adapter and that is of no use outside UK (the three pronged plug). I wish I had received something usable in Italy.
