In order to cater for those whose home audio system is on the way to being an almost entirely digital proposition, the Design DAC is rapidly becoming the centrepiece of many systems. If you fall into this category, then you need to source a seriously good USB DAC to place between the computer and your hi-fi system so that you can translate these digital files to beautiful music. Whilst there are an ever increasing number on the market these days, surely it is best to look to a reputable manufacturer with decades of experience in designing products capable of giving you the best result.

With its many features, YBA’s Design WD202 DAC has a multitude of connection options to satisfy the most demanding users.

Should you wish to use your Windows based PC as a source, a driver download is required. This supports up to Windows 8.  No download is necessary for a MAC but be aware that in the Mac OS X 'parameters/sound/' you will need to set-up the output to USB DAC. 

When this is completed and you connect your WD202 the Windows ‘Found new hardware’ bubble will appear. The description of the WD 202 will be ‘USB Audio Device’.

After a few seconds you will receive a message ‘Your new hardware is installed and ready to use’. Your PC’s previous audio output device should be temporarily disabled and the WD 202 will become the default audio device automatically. This can be checked in the Control Panel. Select Sounds and Audio Devices. In the volume tab check YBA Design WD 202.

If you wish to disconnect your WD 202 and return to your sound card, simply disconnect or switch off the power on the front panel. If for some reason your PC fails to disable the WD 202, you can manually do this in the hardware device manager .
