SMSL SD-1955

SMSL SD-1955

“The SD-1955 delivers very low distortion for the price, and a clean, clear all-encompassing sound to match. Exchanging stock op amps is recommended.” --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

Matrix X-Sabre DAC

Matrix X-Sabre DAC

“ DSD is all the rage these days. Despite there not being a whole lot of music available in the format (SACDs aside), DAC makers are jumping on the feature as fast as they can. And I can't blame them - aside from our "regular" music, we all love a little ear candy to show off the capabilities of our system.    Another thing that's quite popular? The ESS Sabre DACs. These Sabre...” --project86

Resonessence Labs Concero

Resonessence Labs Concero

“     Not to pat myself on the back too much, but I was one of the very first people to review the Invicta DAC from Resonessence Labs ($3999). I found it to be exceptionally good - competing with and even surpassing several of my other DACs which cost significantly more. The Invicta system went on to become a very successful product, well reviewed by numerous other...” --project86

Logitech Squeezebox Wi-Fi Internet Radio and Wireless Music Player

Logitech Squeezebox Wi-Fi Internet Radio and Wireless Music Player

“ First I tried the newer Squeezebox Duet which has a display on the remote control but I prefer the Classic because the display is much bigger then the display of the newer remote control.   I have never enjoyed music so much with this device, just scan your music and it imports all your iTunes playlists or your music folders if you don't use iTunes (in my case I don't) and use...” --alexdemaet

Anedio D1 DAC

Anedio D1 DAC

“ http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/528473/review-anedio-d1-dac-my-new-reference-dac   That's a link to my detailed review. In summary:   The best DAC I've ever heard. The only thing that matched it was the MBL 1511E which is a $9000 DAC. The Anedio is identical in sound, at a much lower price, thus by far a better DAC. Please read my review for further info.” --project86

Linn Sondek LP12

Linn Sondek LP12

“I bought my LP12 around 1994. Over the next six year I did every available upgrade to it. And then for the next thirteen years I just enjoyed it. Last year I took it in for a new cartridge and tune up. They brought it completely up to date and made it better than ever.  The LP12 is a very well balanced design. Other 'tables might exceed it in rhythm and timing, extension, or...” --Sam Edwards

Eastern Electric MiniMax Dac

Eastern Electric MiniMax Dac

“ There's really no point in me writing a review, as I concur with the more professional reviews written below. A huge range of people have spent hundreds of hours combined with this dac, and found it to best significantly more expensive items like the Anedio and Metric Halo.  Obviously, your mileage may vary, but the knockdown giant-killer feature of this dac is, for me, the...” --AVU

“ Huge improvement of my music collection run trough my laptop. The DAC is linked via USB cable to the the laptop and at the end is linked to an amp (Rega ear) which drives my HD 5000. Small in size but very big in sound quality. ” --Elfenau
