Best Portable USB Dac

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So far I've come across the Dragonfly v 1,2 and the Meridian Explorer

 

Seems like they trade blows in regards to performance

 

is there anything similar out there that will best either of these?

What is your budget? You could also look at the Leckerton amp/dacs and the JDS Labs C5D. These have the advantage of you can use them with other portable devices where you just want the headphone amp.

Hey my budget is <200$ i suppose. I found the Meridian Explorer vs 150 on Amazon (new)...I'm skeptical of this though as I see through their official website it still retails at 299

 

both the UHA-4 by Leckerton and the JDS product are within my price range..what's your opinion of these products? In comparison to the Meridian in particular if it is indeed a legit deal at that price.

I haven't compared all those. The JDS Labs and Leckerton have reputations as some of the best headphone amps for their price with decent DACs to boot.
