REVIEW (more to come) - CEntrance DACport 24/96 USB DAC Amp - Page 32

post #466 of 472

Wow, less than 1 year and my Dacport is dead. No nothing came after plugged in the cable. White LED does not turn on either. Wonder if you guys has/had same situation as me? Going to warranty it.

Have you made sure to check that it's not just the cable that is acting up?

Tried different USB cable/laptop. Not working. :(

 

Remembered that last time I left it running with my Macbook lid close (not sure Dacport is running or not), when I came back try to touch the unit feels like you touching faulty IC(integrated circuit). I mean really hot.

 

Works well until I shutdown my Macbook and to switch on a day after.

I have the DacPort running into my Fostex TH600 headphones.  I am in awe.  DacPort was very responsive to my questions, and you can now buy the DacPort

for $250 directly from DacPort.  And for the record, I have no affiliation with them.  I use apple lossless and FLAC files, and the sound is just amazing.  Very musical

and I am now convinced that the DacPort with it's DAC and Class A amp built in, sounds so smooth that you would believe you are running a tube amp.

 

I considered a tube amp, however I took the chance and bought the DacPort due to the splendid reviews, and the advantage of having something that is, indeed,

very portable.  If I travel with my computer, I am assured of great sound.  For your reference, my other equipment at home is a MacIntosh amp and the new Magnaplanar

1.7 speakers with Velodyne sub woofer.  I like an open sound, not a box,  The DacPort allows the Fostex TH600 sound wide open.

Now I wonder if they can improve the amp section of the Dacport so that its resolution matches that of the LX - in other words, get closer to the DAC's potential.  Perhaps a Dacport II.

DACport II?

 

I think they did that with the HiFi-M8 already :tongue_smile:

I jumped on a great deal for the LX.  However I saw that it ouputs a 1/4 in TRS jack.  If I want to connect it to an amp could I just use a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter on my 1/8 to RCA cable, or do I really need a 1/4 to RCA cable?

You can use the 1/4" adapter with your existing 1/8" cable, unless you're a perfectionist like me, then you have ALO audio or Moon-Audio build you a 1/4" to RCA interconnect. Probably very little benefit if your existing cable is a decent quality one.
