Audio-Technica is known for producing high-end USB turntables. In February they'll be releasing the Audio-Technica ATH-D900USB USB ($385) headphones. What makes these headphones unique is that they come with a built-in 24-bit DAC. The DAC sits in the left ear cup and utilizes a Burr-Brown PCM1791 op-amp.

Not to worry if you don't have a need for USB headphones, these also come with a 3.5mm jack so you can plug them into any of your audio devices.

If you're still broken-hearted over the demise of the Land Rover Defender, then we might have a replacement for you. The Russian brand UAZ looks to fill that hole with the release of their UAZ Hunter ($CALL). The Hunter features two engine options, a 2.6-liter gas engine that puts our 128 horses and 209 Nm and a 2.2-liter diesel engine, that puts out 83 horses and 270 Nm.
