    Comparison: Meridian Explorer vs HRT Microstreamer

    Anyone of you guys have both of these and can give a side by side comparison in terms of SQ? And does the Explorer have an internal amp? Because the HRT has one. And if not, does it need one? And what kind of cans can it power directly? (The Explorer) All of your response will be appreciated...

    DAC for AKG550

    Hi   My new AKG550 get static from my onboard RealTek soundcard, and people advised me to buy a DAC, which should also increase sound quality significantly. I've been looking for a good DAC for these headphones, and there's a few recurring names. Could someone shed some light on which would be...

    DAC/amps with independent headphone and analog output levels?

    I'm trying to come up with a list of DAC/amp combination units which allow headphone volume to be controlled independently from the analog output level. It's fine if the analog output level is fixed (at the usual 2V unbalanced, 4V balanced). I want to connect dynamic headphones to this unit, and...

    HRT MicroStreamer issues

    Hi all,   I have just received my HRT MicroSteamer to use on my work PC (windows 7) so I can listen to music in the day.   I've been trying to use it today and there is a major problem with it I can't overcome. Anything I listen too, whether music through Winamp, youtube or even windows...

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    As discussed in the Android USB audio thread, thought I would start a thread about this great Android app so we could separate the discussion about it a bit from the general USB audio thread.   For those of us with Android devices this app is hugely important for a few reasons.   The first...

    Asus Xonar Essence ST/STX vs. HRT MicroStreamer

    Hi,   I've bought new headphones Audio-technica ATH-AD700, and I want to buy DAC+AMP combo. I'm deciding between Xonar Essence and MicroStreamer, but I don't know which one choose. I know that Essence is internal and MicroStreamer is external, but it's not important for me. I want to use it...

    HRT MicroSreamer Vs HRT Music Streamer

    I'm looking at DAC options to pair w/ an Asgard 2. Besides the obvious choice Bifrost or Modi, HRT products have caught my eye.   Has anyone compared HRT MicroStreamer vs the Music Streamer?    The MicroStreamer is a DAC/Amp combo. I  don't really need the amp since I have the Asgard...

    Common Ground - What Personal Audio has that High End (Stereo) Doesn't

    Hey Everybody,   I wasn't sure where to post this, and I didn't want to bug Jude about it.  The response to my HRT microStreamer review thread (in computer audio) has been overwhelming (thanks to ALL of you for that), and it sparked this essay I just wrote for Audio Head:   Common Ground...

    The Portable USB DAC/Amp All-In-One Thread!

    So I'm sure I'm not the only person who had noticed that the market for portable DAC/amp combo units has basically been invented and simultaneously exploded over the course of the last year or so. Personally I think they are basically the greatest thing since sliced bread and am a huge fan of my...

    Is there such a thing as a box that reads digital music files and sends them to a DAC yet isn't a traditional computer?

    I have a headphone setup that has been working well for me. It's fed by a Mac with iTunes+BitPerfect outputting to a HRT MSII+ DAC. The problem is the Mac is now an ex computer. It was apparently pining for the fjords and now its metabolic processes are of interest only to historians. Anyway...

    HRT Microstreamer or Audioengine D1

    Hello folks,    I'm in the market for a new portable DAC. I've been looking around the internet to find some information about these two DACs and they both have great reviews. I can't really find comparisons between these two anywhere. It's really hard to find which one would be a better...

    HRT Microstreamer USB DAC

    Hi,   I was considering buying a USB DAC (probably the HRT Microstreamer as it tends to get excellent reviews) and was wondering how much this would improve the audio quality from my laptop (a cheap Lenovo), ie. would it be noticeable? All my music has been ripped from CDs to iTunes as AAC...

    ios7, iPhone and Apple CCK

    Has anybody tried to connect an iPhone (running iOS7) to a DAC or USB/SPDIF device (with or without a powered hub) via the Apple Camera Connector Kit? The CCK did not work with the iPhone with iOS6 and there were rumors that it would with iOS7.

    Next Logical Upgrade for USB DAC?

    Hey community   I received my HRT microStreamer last week and have been planning potential upgrades for it. The big two are a better USB cable (dubious) or isolated power supply. Right now I use a 6' Belkin Gold USB cable and 3' Blue Jeans MSA-1. The USB cable is connected to the back port of...

    What 300.00 amp would you buy for the Note II

    I currently have a Fiio E5, E6 and my the D Zero. My sources are my Note II, Clip Zip RB'd . I've read through the Note 2 thread, but it is really hard to pick just on what works with it. Opinions on what others have used and found to be an improvement means more to me. I'm looking at replacing...

    Sonic Satori - HRT Levels the Field with the MicroStreamer

    I don't want to waste your time reading more spontaneous prose from yours truly, so lemme say when I got the microStreamer from HRT just prior to release (YES - I worked for them, I lay it out for ALL to see in my review & many know that here) I was so enthralled by its sonic wonderment...
