Thinnest high quality portable DAC (iDevice or USB)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am looking for what portable DACs are available for either iDevices or USB (android or other DAPs with digital out, probably USB). Headstage arrow size would great. Trying to keep the portable rig actually portable. These fat DAPs (HMs, DX100 etc.), chunky amps and 1 inch high DACs is just not going to fit in the pocket but still want 3 separate pieces. DAP, DAC And AMP. Glacier comes to mind but would like to know if it is a high quality DAC as I have heard that the amp portion is not that great. Just think of an iDevice or android thin DAP with the headstage arrow and a thin DAC, total width might be an inch. Thanks!!

Try the apex glacier, its really thin, its also a dac amp, so you can just carry that and your android phone

If you want iDevice DAC/Amp, I think Go-Dap X is the thinest of all DAC/Amp that support iDevice (HiFi-M8, HP-P1, PHA-1). It sound great with my Fitear MH335DW. If you only want DAC, I suggest AlgoRhythm Solo -R or -dB. It's by far the best DAC that support iDevice right now.

Any others for non iDevice besides the apex that would be a thin DAC?

Ibasso d zero is another one, there is a full list of it in the android usb dac thread , but generally these two is the thinnest solution around
