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

Schiit Modi 2 Uber

Schiit Modi 2 Uber

“Quick review of the Modi 2 Uber...   Sound Much improved from the original Modi. In particular, the midrange has much better overall tonality, and the new Modi really brings forth a more detailed presentation. It has an overall tilt towards details, which I believe to be in the upper midrange/lower treble region... it also does so without sounding overly crisp, or bright.   I...” --mikoss

OPPO BDP-95 Universal Blu-ray Player

OPPO BDP-95 Universal Blu-ray Player

“ Overall I am very happy with my Oppo 95.  We are not reviewing this stuff here on this site for the video performance so I will skip that.  My only complaint is that its audio output is bass shy.  I bought this to replace a Denon DVD-3930CI which I finally had to give up on.  After listening to the Oppo for awhile through Creek amp and HD600 cans I just couldn't accept it...” --King of Pangaea

Matrix Mini i DAC

Matrix Mini i DAC

“ I've had this DAC for a few months now and I think its pretty much broken in.  At first the sound is very open with a huge sound stage and a tad bit edgy but over time the edginess goes away completely, the soundstage settles in nicely and it becomes very smooth sounding.  This is a very analog sounding DAC with great looks, great variety of inputs and outputs top notch build...” --Dynobot

Audiolab M-DAC

Audiolab M-DAC

“ I've had this forever, but never thought about writing a review for it.   I came to the Mdac via the Young and the Weiss 202, both which i still had when the Mdac first landed. it saw the Young off with its pre-amp functionality, remote control, headphone out  and better treble. The Young sounded a touch coarse in the upper register compared to the Mdac. Similarly the Mdac a...” --sq225917

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

PS Audio - PerfectWave DAC

PS Audio - PerfectWave DAC

“ Full featured DAC that comes very close to the performance of cost no object DAC's at a fraction of the price.   If the Network Bridge meets the expectations this will be the DAC for Streaming your Audio from your own Network storage device (NAS, Computer etc.)   Great flexibility. Allows a degree of fine tuning with different SRC settings, or even going Native. Then there's the...” --Yikes

Emotiva Stealth DC-1 | Balanced 24/192 Fully Differential DAC

Emotiva Stealth DC-1 | Balanced 24/192 Fully Differential DAC

“I think there is absolutely no DAC Preamp out there that can touch this unit in this price range and even between the $500.00-$1,000.00 mark. From the built quality, sound, the ease of use, the features it provides and to the convenience of the remote. I just can't be more grateful to have all of it at such a great price. Everything I need is in it and I couldn't ask for more. I also increased...” --Audiobahn808

Audio-gd NFB 1.32

Audio-gd NFB 1.32

“After a long deliberation and searching, I opted for this DAC, in visual terms is not exceptional and are better, but its design and sound quality are at the highest level. I like DAC input through XLR cable to the headphone amplifier SPL Phonitor and Sennheiser HD650 headphones,  the sound is perfect and in fact is not reproduced, but heard quite directly, as concert, studio or club....” --Alahad

Metrum Acoustics Octave

Metrum Acoustics Octave

“   This DAC came to my attention when I found a long thread about it on Stereo.net.au. While, in principle I wasn't interested in a NOS (Non-oversampling) DAC, due to their reputation for rolled-off and distorted (if pleasant) sound, some aspects of the design caught my attention. It doesn't use the old Phillips or BB chips that popular designs use, but industrial-grade high-frequency...” --Currawong
