DAC isn't the sexiest of acronyms, but a decent digital-to-analogue converter can be the difference between a system that sinks and one that sings. We round up the best on the market...

DACs come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from dinky USB DACs like the Audioquest DragonFly Black to more substantial offerings from the likes of Oppo and Chord. We've assembled a list of the best DACs you can buy, whatever your budget.

AudioQuest DragonFly Red

Reviewed on 6th June 2016 at
£170

The DragonFly Red builds on the qualities of the Black but it takes performance up a notch or two. It's a simple, near-flawless option for anyone looking to give their computer-borne music a hi-fi boost. It was also crowned Best USB DAC £100+ in our 2016 Awards.

Chord Mojo

Reviewed on 14th October 2015 at
£399

Put simply, the £400 Mojo delivers much of the performance of Chord's high-end DAC range at a fraction of the price. It's an outstanding product for the money and was crowned our DAC Product of the Year in 2016.
