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

PRO-JECT - DAC BOX S FL (SILVER)

PRO-JECT - DAC BOX S FL (SILVER)

“Sometimes you need to try something completely different, and the Pro-Ject DAC Box S FL is just for that situation.   What is a DAC Box S FL?   The Box S FL is a NOS (Non-oversampling) DAC that uses four TDA 1543T chips in parallel Dual Differential Mode to convert your digital signal into analog. These are classic IC's dating back to the 90's, and apparently the theory is that...” --johnnyb

Soundaware D100Pro Deluxe 32bit 192 Khz, DSD/PCM Digital Streaming Audio Transport System

“Danny from Dita Audio tipped me off that I should check out Soundaware and that they had some pretty clever technology. And so it was that Mary from Soundaware contacted me about sending me both  the M1 Esther DAP and the D100Pro music server for review.   Opening up the box revealed a fairly standard, but attractive aluminium device, unusually with three pointed aluminium feet...” --Currawong

Matrix Quattro II DAC

Matrix Quattro II DAC

“Firstly I would like to thank Matrix for sending me this review sample, it was arranged through their distributor. I always try to write honest reviews, these are my subjective findings. This DAC has been burnt in, to be honest with solid state devices I do not tend to hear big variations after burn-in, this was no different.   Gear Used: Dell XPS 15 > USB > Matrix Quattro II >...” --ostewart

Stoner Acoustics EGD

Stoner Acoustics EGD

“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

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
