$250 for a "HiFi" stereo soundcard which has pretty much the same functionalities as an external DAC/amp? That's a pretty hefty price-tag for a product that can only used with PC, and it doesn't even have any Dolby/DTS licensing (although who cares about that when HDMI is already making them obsolete).
At least the output impedance and power delivery is good for headphones (if the given info is correct about the output impedance being a fraction of an ohm).
But there are massive amounts of HiFi competitors in the same price-bracket, like Massdrop O2+SDAC, Aune X1s, Schiit Stack, Topping DX3 Pro, Burson Play, etc.
And every one of the competitors would most likely be a superior option compared to the NU soundcard.
Oh lord, it even requires a SATA connector for power.
At that point I would just buy a Burson Play for $250 as it has exactly the same features as the NU, but it can also be used either as an internal (in the drive bay of the PC-case) or external solution.
