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

“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

CEntrance DACport LX Ultra Low-noise, portable USB DAC

CEntrance DACport LX Ultra Low-noise, portable USB DAC

“      Centrance LX Dacport is being put to test with my O2 amp, and let me tell you they were made for each other. Music never sounded so good. Natural sounds, beautiful and precise instrument separation, the most important thing is balance nothing overwhelms neither the Bass or the treble, but the mids are really what I enjoy, along with the soundstage, not big but it is...” --turokrocks

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

NuPrime uDSD Hi-resolution USB-powered Portable DAC (PCM 384, DSD 256) & Headphone Amp

“I have had my uDSD for a month now and have used it every day with HD598s. The uDSD provides a great improvement when compared to my Dell laptops headphone output. I traded in an uDAC-2 and uDSD is great improvement. The build quality is also much better than the uDAC-2. Divers were easy to load and I was up and running within 5 minutes. Thanks Jason! ” --pennstateee1
