Another USB DAC contender weighs in and flexes for the cameras, but the $750 John Kenney Ciunas doesn’t seem to be just Dapper-Dan all flash and no stash … in fact, it would seem just the opposite. Compact, simple, and – like every good little boxer – has a few unique punches to throw at you. In the case of the Ciunas, the low power-supply noise from the battery seems one of the keys to success … and one killer aspect of this is that the battery can be drip-charged from the power-line in the USB cable. The beauty of genius is in the elegance of its simplicity – and I daresay this qualifies.
