    Sony PHA-3AC

    Reviewed on 5th May 2015
    Price when reviewed £720

    The Sony PHA-3AC is a good product, and is worth an audition, but isn’t the class leader we hoped for

  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. Oppo HA-1

    Oppo HA-1

    Reviewed on 2nd March 2015
    Price when reviewed £1200

    Worth auditioning at this price, but it needs to deliver more energy and excitement for the full five stars

    Price when reviewed £1400

    Benchmark DAC2 HGC

    Reviewed on 21st October 2014
    Price when reviewed £1750

    The Benchmark DAC2 HGC is a hugely capable product but it’s up against some formidable competition

    Reviewed on 9th October 2014
    Price when reviewed £990

    Best DAC £700-£1500, Awards 2014. Chord has achieved some rave reviews for its latest DACs, and the QuteEX is another to add to the list
