Mine didn't have anything besides a small sticker on the flat bottom of the metal tube.

Interesting, the one received didn't even have a sticker.

I followed the advice earlier in this thread, and bought a cheap heatsink which I keep rubber-banded to the DACport - keeps the heat down to "barely warm" even after hours of play.

Hi guys,

 

I just recently purchased a 2nd-hand DACport and together with my Havi B3 IEMs, its absolutely BEAUTIFUL, and it gets even better when I listen to 24 bit FLACs for the first time...words can't describe the euphoric experience. Oh wait, I just used the word euphoric lol.

 

Anyway, I've got a question, I am planning to get this 2nd hand active speakers in the future: http://www.aktimate.com.au/mini+.html

I understand from the centrance website that the DACport's line out behaves as a level line-out when connected to active speakers but I'm not sure if the DACport can feed this speakers properly? I'm just afraid because of its size as compared to conventional desktop DACs, it might not be suitable for such speakers? Anyone has any experience connecting the DACport to similar speakers?

It should work just fine - I often use the DACport with a custom ALO audio cable that has a 1/4" TRS plug on one end & dual RCA on the other end, and I feed the RCA plugs into my tiny Audioengine A2 speakers.  

 

I can turn up the volume knob on the DACport to get something close to a line-level output, and control the volume with the speaker's control (or I can turn up the speaker's volume and control everything with the DACport's volume knob).

Thank you! That is good to hear. I have also emailed both Centrance and Aktimate with the same question. Will report back when they replied as well. 

 

Regards

Michael from Centrance replied and he said it will have no problems it working with the Mini+ :)

Hi fellow head-fiers, would want some advice... Is it still wise to purchase a second hand Centrance Dacport today now that it's 4+yrs old? I am using the Leckerton UHA-4 dac/amp combo and considering upgrading to something with higher sample rate /bit depth support. Thanks in advance any suggestions.
