Matrix Mini-I (2014)

“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

Stoner Acoustics UD110 V2

Stoner Acoustics UD110 V2

“    The ud110 was recommended in a few different serious threads in the audio community, and I was intrigued to say the least, myself looking for more affordable options with out sacrificing too much and getting nice audio quality. I have tried a handful of DACs that some would consider the best value for your money in the 100-300$ price range. I know everyone has a preference as far...” --WhiskeyJacks

Audio Poutine CDAC+

Audio Poutine CDAC+

“    I currently had done a review for the Fostex HP-A3 DAC/amp unit, which is a couple years old, but none the less one of the best units in the price range from experience and reading material from people and enthusiasts with much more knowledge than I. So, after I had first listened and used for a while with the Fostex. I was able to write a review about the unit, and also a brief...” --WhiskeyJacks

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

Breeze Audio PD05 XMOS + PCM5102 DAC

Breeze Audio PD05 XMOS + PCM5102 DAC

“Sorry for poor English, I'm Japanese. I bought it at Aliexpress, and it worked fine.   After removing the contents by removing the front cover, PCM5102A there was certainly on the mother board. And condensers are made by Sanyo. It is an amateur's impression, but looks like it does not use the bad parts.   Even amateur ear, I felt the sound was better than cheap China DAC(VIA...” --KEMMA

Bel Canto C5i DAC Integrated Amplifier

Bel Canto C5i DAC Integrated Amplifier

“ The c5i will connect to nearly anything and reveal detail. My old system - not only old enough to drink but old enough to suffer for it - was in comparison sludgy, fat and slow. I got rid of 70 lb of analog kit and replaced it with a 13 lb c5i and a Vortexbox on a fit-pc2. The S/PDIF connection sounds the best: the USB connection seems to suffer from power supply noise coming from the...” --jetsilver

Fostex HP-A3

Fostex HP-A3

“ So, where to I begin... I am newer to owning and reviewing audio equipment of above the normal consumer caliber. I have come from a AMB Gamma 1 lite for desktop us, an Fiio E7 for portable, with a couple a of different sub 100$ portable amps. So I am limited when it comes to multi hundred dollar DACs and headphone amplifiers and I just want people, in this community, to keep that in their...” --WhiskeyJacks

HeadRoom Micro DAC

HeadRoom Micro DAC

“This is a really tough review because to my ears this DAC doesn't really have it's own signature. So the best I can do is compare it to my old ODAC and Modi, but all based on memory.   First off, Headroom had stopped selling their own brand of gear so I just HAD to buy this. Headroom should reconsider and hire a marketing guru. The small size and plain design doesn't help much. They're...” --tdockweiler
