    Arcam irDAC-II

    Reviewed on 26th April 2016
    Price when reviewed £495

    A talented and capable DAC, but it’s up against some serious competition...

  2. Rega DAC-R

    Rega DAC-R

    Reviewed on 4th February 2016
    Price when reviewed £600

    A good DAC from Rega, but can it give its rivals a run for their money?

  3. Pathos Converto

    Pathos Converto

    Reviewed on 22nd July 2015
    Price when reviewed £675

    The design of this Pathos DAC may be missing a few frills but the sound doesn't want for detail or weight

    Best DAC £500-£700, Awards 2014. Effortlessly talented and enjoyable, the M-DAC is still the best product of its kind

  7. Creative Sound Blaster X7

    Creative Sound Blaster X7

    Reviewed on 10th April 2015
    Price when reviewed £430

    The Sound Blaster promises much but fails to shine. It’s a decent performer but is easily bettered by the likes of NAD’s D3020

  8. Rotel RDD-1580

    Rotel RDD-1580

    Reviewed on 15th April 2014
    Price when reviewed £600

    There’s plenty to be impressed with this Rotel DAC, but its poor USB input holds it back

  9. Sony UDA-1

    Sony UDA-1

    Reviewed on 12th February 2014
    Price when reviewed £500

    Provided you use the UDA-1 in a set-up optimised for desktop use it’s a fine product. We’re really impressed by the build and finish too

  10. Parasound Zdac

    Parasound Zdac

    Reviewed on 8th November 2013
    Price when reviewed £500

    Not the final word in DAC performance at this price, but the Zdac still produces a lively, likeable sound

  11. Meridian Director

    Meridian Director

    Reviewed on 28th October 2013
    Price when reviewed £450

    The diminutive Director packs a sonic punch but doesn’t have the rhythmic swagger of the best
