are you seriously comparing an LPTDAC device with Paula? c'mon man, this is not a dedicated DAC we are talking about, this is as simple as it gets - don't expect it to replace your soundblaster 🤣 🤣 🤣
Well, there's no reason why a DAC connected to an LPT can't sound as good a DAC on an SB, in theory.
And judging MobyGamer's capture, the Covox has a very high-quality DAC, as far as 8-bit DACs go. I always expect to hear some quantization noise with 8-bit samples, especially on more quiet passages, but the Covox sounds very VERY good there.
