Yulong D100 MKII Reviews


Ultimate performer for a moderate price tag


Pros: Smooth, natural, deep punchy bass, superb sound for its price, design, lots inputs, display

Cons: Volume knob (stepped volume control), on/off switch in rear

Let me first say that this is my first Yulong product. And while I've used many Chinese products before, Yulong stands out in its own way.                             The DAC section is wonderful, it just hits exactly where I want it - at least for now, considering my listening preferences (which have a tendency to change). It hits the right notes for me. Going from a warmish DAC like the Audio-gd NFB gave me more joy in the treble department when using the D100.

Best DAC I've heard


Pros: Smooth, powerful, great soundstage, reliable, great connections, USB rocks!

I have heard a better sound from one machine but it was a slight improvement and it was twice the price! (M-DAC)
