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

Meier Audio Corda DACCORD ff

Meier Audio Corda DACCORD ff

“I use it alone with active studio monitors (Dynaudio) and in pair with Corda Classic ff with Ultrasone Pro900. I am not going to give you the same reading, so here is some impressions after update to ff.   Whatever I throw at it, from techno, heavy metal to live symphony recordings, I could clearly hear the difference which I would describe as more meat in the music. It hits hard but now...” --flyby

“Both EGD and EGA has been long rumored in their official website, I knew that they was a high performance DAC when I talked to their Engineer, the amp is quite a surprise because I have never expecting them, because to me they are a company that 100% devoted to make high price to performance DAC only, EGD and EGA proved me wrong, in fact, the Ruby that I just reviewed already had proven me...” --mrinspire

Metrum Acoustics Musette Non-oversampling Mini DAC with USB Analog-sounding! Black

Metrum Acoustics Musette Non-oversampling Mini DAC with USB Analog-sounding! Black

“Musette is a very musical DAC. With linear, neutral NOS presentation, that lies a bit towards to the dark side. Sounds very comfortable, fairly smooth, almost "analog like" and pure (add to its purity absolutely dark background of Violectric-simply perfect). Thus it isn't boring to listen at all, that provided by excellent sense of a rhythm and timing: notes appears and fades not fast, nor...” --Rockcoon

Meridian Explorer 2

Meridian Explorer 2

“Once again, many thanks to Todd at TTVJ Audio for setting up the loaner program.   Designing a portable device is study in trade-offs of size, weight, price, and performance. Given the performance of the USB-powered DAC's on the market that are about the size of a pack of gum, the Meridian Explorer 2 has a rather high bar to reach, since it's already bigger in three of those four...” --yage

Arcam irDAC Audiophile Grade Digital to Analog Converter

Arcam irDAC Audiophile Grade Digital to Analog Converter

“After spending some time auditioning and researching I've finally found that illusive nirvana, the perfect mix of price, design and sound for me.   I wanted a DAC minus the frills. As a HD800 owner I already have a high quality headphone amp, Burson Soloist SL, as well as a high quality tube preamp in my main system, so the usual suspects which have money spent on what would be unused...” --cub3

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
