Audinst HUD-mini

Audinst HUD-mini

“ Me: I am a 21 year old Engineering student living in a small town in India. I would like to call myself a music enthusiast, rather than an audiophile. I was inspired by music since childhood, and as the time passed, the passion of music grew in me, and that subsequently led me to join Head-Fi. Eventually, I found the pleasure of listening to music mainly by the HD600 and recently, by the...” --YoYo JoKeR

Chord DAVE

“ When I was a child in the '80s, one of my neighbour's kids, a gloriously goofy-looking guy of the era, was always out on his driveway fixing his motorbikes, then later, his car, a vintage Ford V8. Amongst the memories of grease, gears and the like was his response to questions of how to fix any problem. "Use a bigger hammer" he'd say, jokingly, something anyone of that era who did their own...” --Currawong

HRT - Music Streamer HD - Digital to Analog Converter

HRT - Music Streamer HD - Digital to Analog Converter

“ This particular DAC is to me unique, to my experience this DAC sounds more like vacuum tubes, specifically the British Orange Globes or Mullards and the American RCA tubes. A combination of both, being that it has this sweet, sweet midrange, very smooth, liquid and luscious sound like a British tube, as well as this clean, clear, powerful bass and very detailed like the American RCA....” --Audiobahn808

Peachtree Audio DAC-iT Digital Input

Peachtree Audio DAC-iT Digital Input

“Quick Story and IntroThe reason I'm writing this review is not because this is a cool new up and coming product. In fact, its quite the opposite. Peachtree released their second version of the DAC iT, the DAC iTx, in 2013. I've heard only great and positive things about Peachtree in the time I've been here with the Head-Fi community, so naturally, when I was looking for an affordable desktop...” --Cotnijoe

Musical Fidelity V-DAC II Upsampling Digital-to-Analog Converter with Asynchronous USB Input

Musical Fidelity V-DAC II Upsampling Digital-to-Analog Converter with Asynchronous USB Input

“ 1. Introduction Let me get straight to the point of why I'm writing my first and possibly only review of an item in the world of amps and dacs. This does not dissapoint in any way at all. That's unique.   In all the 20 amps or/and dacs there always is a bug somewhere. It's either a physical fault like it overheats, looses connection, comes with badly built ports, dodgy...” --CantScareMe

Violectric DAC V800

“I was sent the V800, V181, and V200 to demonstrate at the Austin Head-fi meet last weekend so I thought I would put up a short-ish review of these items. I've already finished the comparison of the V181 and V200. Please search for those reviews if you are interested. This review will only be posted on the V800 but it will be a comparison of the V800, the Matrix X-Sabre, and the Matrix M-Stage...” --Maxvla

HiFime SPDIF Optical 9018 DAC

HiFime SPDIF Optical 9018 DAC

“         Preamble: At HiFime, all started with the production of the Tripath TK2050 speaker amplification chip. Nowadays they are mostly known for their portable DACs that use valuable electronics but remain a good price-performance ratio. I would definitely say for myself that I really like ESS Technology’s SABRE audio chips – in some applications, their sound is...” --HiFiChris
