Matrix Quattro Dac

Matrix Quattro Dac

“ Matrix Quattro Dac and Amp Impressions   If you just want to hear what I thought about the Matrix combo, jump down about five or six paragraphs! This first part may be a bit extraneous for many readers…   First off, major thanks to @project86  for  his generosity in lending out some gear for us Head-Fi’ers to try, but more importantly because this sort of program...” --shipsupt

Matrix Mini-I Pro

Matrix Mini-I Pro

“Greetings, this is a comparative review of the recently updated Matrix Mini-I and Mini-I Pro. Also compared will be the Matrix X-Sabre (DAC only duties) and Matrix M-Stage HPA-2 (headphone amp only duties). The X-Sabre and M-Stage are meant to test each function of the Mini-I independently, and then also as a combination unit. Introducing the new Mini-I and Mini-I Pro: Let's start off with...” --Maxvla

Emotiva Stealth DC-1 | Balanced 24/192 Fully Differential DAC

Emotiva Stealth DC-1 | Balanced 24/192 Fully Differential DAC

“I recently purchased the stealth dc-1 as an all around solution to my akg k702 annies and emotiva stealth 8 speakers after my desk was getting cluttered with equipment. This device has cleaned my desk up tremendously without sacrificing anything. My main concern when buying the dc-1 was how it would do with my k702s but it powers them perfectly. I came from the o2+odac and the only thing I...” --megawhacko

Firestone Audio Custom Cute

Firestone Audio Custom Cute

“ Recently I have looked into two of FireStone portable amps, but the company’s core business is really in their compact desktop rig. Here we have two more FireStone products waiting for assessment: The Custom Cute is a USB DAC that supports up to 24bit / 192kbps in resolution, priced around US$299. The Fubar HD is an all-in-one DAC + headphone amp that also supports up to 24/192 with S/PDIF...” --ClieOS

HRT - Music Streamer HD - Digital to Analog Converter

HRT - Music Streamer HD - Digital to Analog Converter

“I've been listening to a sample unit of HRT's new flagship DAC, the Music Streamer HD, for about a month now, and have been comparing it pretty extensively to the microStreamer. I began my demo by listening to the HD as soon as I got it, and I loved the sound right off the bat, but unfortunately I had a few things come up in my life and didn’t get to use the HD much in the following weeks due...” --Gilly87

iFi iDAC

iFi iDAC

“ iFi Audio iDAC reached Earmass! I must be lucky enough to stand a chance for reviewing iFi Audio products. Previously iCAN and not so long ago the iUSB, thanks Vince from iFi Audio sending me these goodies, I appreciated them. There are four products in iFi Audio product range currently, none of them have disappointed me in any way I can say. They all have...” --mrinspire

OPPO BDP-105 Universal Audiophile 3D Blu-ray Player

OPPO BDP-105 Universal Audiophile 3D Blu-ray Player

“I connected BDP 105 to Schiit Lry with Telefunken tubes-HE 5LE, and listened to Wagner Sigfrieds funeral march, Bach Mass B minor, and some vocals of Wagners. The first impression was fluidity and being spaciousness so that I stood in the concert room. I felt the 3 dimensional space of musical sources. It was not the case with Bifrost without Uber upgrade, which was once my savior of Mahler...” --Joong

Cocktail Audio X10

Cocktail Audio X10

“I have a large CD collection and no CD player (apart from the drives on my PCs) and as a result I haven't listened to some of my music for a long time. It's been sitting in boxes with me raiding to do the odd rip. Last time I looked at devices to integrate my CDs into my digital collection the prices were way beyond my means, so I was really surprised to see what looked like a capable piece of...” --dc-k

RME Babyface USB 2.0 High Speed Audio Interface 10 in, 12 out

“   Hello Head-fi, this is my first review. I saw the RME Babyface product listing in the sidebar with 'no review' under it. Since I highly appreciate it I thought I'd write a review. Please bare with my grammar and typo's as I am not a native English speaker.   A babyfaced German tank   The babyface is a small streamlined USB soundcard with a big 'multi' jog wheel knob...” --durkk

TEAC PD-H600 Reference 600 Series CD Player

TEAC PD-H600 Reference 600 Series CD Player

“ I didn't think of TEAC when I began searching for a dedicated CD player. My initial short list included Denon, Cambridge, Marantz, Onkyo. The Teac intrigued me, so I went for it. It is very solid, minimalist, super quiet.  I haven't gotten into SACDs, so that wasn't a need. However, the Teac plays some compressed formats, in case I want some long uninterrupted listening sessions. It has...” --gonkulator
