Neko Audio D100 DAC

Neko Audio D100 DAC

“ DISCLOSURE: I received a loaner D100 as part of the Neko Audio D100 loaner program.  Wes Miaw, the man behind Neko Audio put together the loaner program.  All outgoing shipping was at my expense.  The loan was not contingent upon a positive review.  However, Mr. Miaw did ask if I would post my impressions (good or bad).   The D100 is an unassuming DAC.  A black box with a silver knob...” --The Monkey

JDS Labs ODAC

JDS Labs ODAC

“ The ODAC was engineered with a mind for science. Using science the designer created a completely transparent source that has absolutely no effect on the music. Thus, you hear only your headphones/speakers/ect, not your source.   If you don't want to color your music, It simply can't get better than this. As long as you only need a RCA out or 3.5mm out, and want a transparent source,...” --Xaborus

CEntrance DACport LX Ultra Low-noise, portable USB DAC

“   General Sound Impression: Got this for about $150 and have this laying around for at least 1 year and 6 month by now, and i only can say that these DAC do sound very nice, Paired this little guy with a HD650 and i can say that this DAC have some very clear mids, with a nice sound stage and good layering.

Musiland Monitor 01 US

Musiland Monitor 01 US

“ I purchased the Musiland Monitor 01 US from a USA re-seller on Ebay for around $80 shipped.  I have used the 01 US now for about a month and I thought that I would provide a brief review for those of you who are curious about a reasonable USB DAC that handles up to 24/192 audio.   The 01 US is a small portable DAC that is housed in an attractive curved gray metal...” --jmartindale55

ONKYO nd s1

ONKYO nd s1

“ It does what it says in the advert, you can put an iPod on it and get direct digital output into a DAC of your choosing. But there is no analogue output so you must have a DAC or an amp with a digital input, e.g. an AV amp like Onkyo (and most of these can be connected to give an onscreen display showing track info, etc.).   Okay an iPod isn't the ultimate hifi source but it is...” --Fatmangolf

SMSL SD-1955

SMSL SD-1955

“The SD-1955 is very impressive for the price; delivering transparency, and an overall very clean sound. It is a little cold and may be very analytical sounding if not paired right. Switch out the op amp for something like an OPA2132” --headphonatic

HRT Music Streamer II High Resolution USB D/A Converter

HRT Music Streamer II High Resolution USB D/A Converter

“ I'm not really a fan of computer DACs and prefer full sized CD players mostly. I previously had a Nuforce Icon Mobile DAC and it's ok. I believe it's the same thing as the uDAC, but I might be wrong. It seemed to be a good match for only specific headphones and I did prefer it to the E7 by far. It's very good for bass and treble happy headphones. It's especially good for the M50 and D2000....” --tdockweiler

Musiland Monitor 02 US

Musiland Monitor 02 US

“ If you are looking for for a cheap Async DAC that does a lot for $150 then look no further than the Musiland Monitor 02 US.    Unlike many DACs in the market this DAC focus on Computer Audio only (which is great for me since I don't need Toslink or Coax inputs).   Using Async USB the DAC delivers Hi-Fi sound performance, but I do have to question why Musiland have to use a lower-end...” --HyperDuel
