Dave's a great guy to deal with, though at times he does come across a bit "aggressively passionate" about audio. He makes a great piece of kit though, and while those plain black boxes aren't much to look at, they certainly make it easier to sneak in upgrades without your financial officer noticing ph34r.gif

Agreed, Dave is very kind and his customer service is great. I'm a happy owner of his DAC-WOW for almost a year now, been using it pretty much daily for many hours straight.

 

I'd highly recommend Hotaudio to anyone looking for simple and affordable, but truly out-of-proportion bang for your buck amps/dacs.

I bought two of this guy's DACs, they're AWESOME!!!   The performance is equivalent or better than commercial "brand" D/A converters costing $400 and $1200 and $2500.  For reference, my system and standards are pretty high end (e.g., $7000 MartinLogan Vantage speakers in my living room, and another system with KEF Reference speakers in a bedroom, both now powered by this guy's DACs).  Highly recommended.

NOPE.

 

I hate these kind of "mini-reviews" - no real info whatsoever, and nothing to judge the poster's veracity or ability to compare two pieces of audio gear properly.

 

Very Decent DACs for the price, but did not beat my $400 Pico DAC after a side by side comparison at a head-fi meet a few years back.  And what I see on eBay might be somewhat better than the old stuff, but to beat a $1200 or $2500 DAC?  Sorry. 

 

1st post?  Try again please.

I have one of the old DacDestroyers. Really great for the price, but it doesn't compete with my higher end gear. Currently at $40 on his website which is pretty good (prices fluctuate wildly though). Very warm sound, and decent amp section for headphones.
