NEWS: Meridian Releases The Explorer Pocket-Sized USB DAC - Page 2

post #16 of 1031

Just read CA's review comparing it to the Drangonfly...

 

what surprises me is that although the EXPLORER sounds better,

there doesn't seem to be a really BIG difference....

 

guess I can hold on to my Dragonfly for another year or so :)

You mean you're not filled with the overwhelming urge to buy the latest new toy? What's this world coming to? tongue.gif

Hmmm.  If my Dragonfly replacement doesn't work this might be where I look next if its Jude approved beerchug.gif.

Yes. You should go for it (that way I can hear it too). Of course the extra $50 is on you. smily_headphones1.gif

Thanks for the news! 

 

Audioquest DragonFly, HRT microStreamer, Centrance DACPort ... Meridian Explorer. There must be a 'pocket size' USB DAC roundup brewing somewhere.

 

ADD: Good to see the manufacturer giving a bit of a rundown of the actual inside of the unit. Barely a day goes by without something new at Head-fi.org, call me addicted.

Here is a link to yet another review.  It appears that my wallet will be at least another 300 dollars lighter this week.

Mines in the mail, should arrive Wednesday.

 

I have DACPort and DragonFly for comparison.  Senn Momentum, AT ESW10JPN, and various IEMs for listening.

Looking forward to the comparison to the DACport.  The Meridian looks to be more portable and possibly stackable than the LX.  The LX may be making a trip back to Amazon to help fund the Explorer.

I really like that you can flash custom firmwares on it, interesting to see what options are going to be available for tweaking.

This. Just got my LX used and this comes out. Hopefully Centrance's engineering will still be competitive today. Not that I am not enjoying it.

Would love to see a comparison between the Explorer and the HRT Istreamer.
