Reviews

£ 160

An easy way to add high quality Bluetooth to your hi-fi, but it could be more affordable

£ 800

A forward-looking product with a refined sound – but it could do with a little more sonic sparkle

£ 350

All the bells and whistles can’t mask the disappointing sonic performance from this specced-out Lindy DAC

£ 260

If you like your music to have an attacking edge, then this DAC’s for you

£ 2595

This DAC/preamp/power supply combo is hugely capable and packed with useful features

£ 249

The Explorer’s design and assured sonic performance makes it a top contender in its niche market

£ 180

Best DAC up to £300, Awards 2013. This bijou headphone DAC makes the most of music on your laptop or PC

Smooth sound from a versatile DAC

£ 325

A good product, but not the most practical or talented for the money

£ 2000

A fine DAC, but the quality of the competition and high price robs it of top marks
