A good DAC from Rega, but can it give its rivals a run for their money?
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
There's a lot to like about this retro-looking DAC and headphone amp combo...
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
There’s plenty to be impressed with this Rotel DAC, but its poor USB input holds it back
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
Not the final word in DAC performance at this price, but the Zdac still produces a lively, likeable sound
The diminutive Director packs a sonic punch but doesn’t have the rhythmic swagger of the best
Lots to recommend it, but sound plays it safe
