Head-Direct HiFiMan HM-101

Head-Direct HiFiMan HM-101

“This little soundcard is worth every penny you pay. It's a clean, well-designed, sturdy piece of equipment Sound-wise, it should be noted that this DAC is very warm. It takes airy, what some may consider "cold" sound of the typical built-in soundcard in most laptops and turns it into warm, smooth sound. Now, my personal setup is pretty warm on its own. My headphones/IEMs (Grado sr225i...” --Kojaku

Audinst HUD-mini

Audinst HUD-mini

“I am new to headfi and i apologise if review is not very helpful.   This entry level dac-amp is quiet a deal from audinst.   Disclaimer: I am currently building my rig and have only entry level models, Sennheiser HD448, Audio Technica WS55 to evaluate this amp. I will update this review after using much better cans with it (will probably start a thread as am confused).   As...” --vaibhavp

NuForce DAC-100

NuForce DAC-100

“       NuForce has an interesting history of success. On the one hand, they became famous on the strength of their relatively high end amps and preamps. They still sell plenty of models in their "reference" line, most of which cost at least several thousand dollars. In more recent times they seem to have focused on the opposite end of the market - the budget end - and...” --project86

Marantz SA8004 Super Audio CD/CD Player (Black)

Marantz SA8004 Super Audio CD/CD Player (Black)

“ Not much to say. This is firstly a high quality SACD player, with many aspects taken from Marantz's reference line. It's my only SACD player ever, but I am impressed by the detailed reproduction of the SACDs that I own. I highly recommend the Nine Inch Nails "The Downward Spiral Deluxe Edition" SACD layer, Bjork's "Medulla", and Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon" as a starting point...” --obzilla

Pure i20 iPod Dock

Pure i20 iPod Dock

“I think some of the reviews above have missed the real point of the i-20 for audiophiles, it provides an excellent spdif output from an iPod. Used with an external DAC the sound is excellent and having tried some of the alternatives (Wadia, Onkyo) I'm not convinced their digital outs are any better despite the much higher prices. In fact, once I ran the i-20 from a linear PSU it was better...” --Gruffnutz

Audio Technica AT-PL60 Fully Automatic Belt Driven Turntable

Audio Technica AT-PL60 Fully Automatic Belt Driven Turntable

“ I received this as a gift from my wife along with some old records. My only previous experience with turntables was when i was 6 listing to some kid tales on my parents old turntable .   But Im so in love of the sound of lps that I worry I found another expensive hobby (photography and headphones being other two)   If you are new to LPs and turntables as I am I really...” --Juantxo

Cambridge - Dac Magic - Digital to Analog Converter

Cambridge - Dac Magic - Digital to Analog Converter

“ I'll skip the Stereophile-style pre-review ramble and get straight into the thick of things. Review split into sections for clarity.   Build Quality: Solidly constructed, in a pleasing matte black finish; gold plating is used on inputs/outputs where applicable. There isn't really much to take umbrage at.   Features: A plethora of inputs and outputs - 2 sets of digital...” --Willakan

Grace Design m920

Grace Design m920

“After owning the PS Audio PWD II for six months, most recently running firmware version 2.4.6 (which is the best I tried), I wanted to move to a dac/preamp solution that would include analog inputs for my phono preamp as well as headphone outputs, and perhaps DSD capability.  My search led to the Grace m920, which I purchased through Paul Allen at Sweetwater.  My initial impressions,...” --boatheelmusic
