Excerpt: We’re rather excited about the new TEAC Reference range . We received a super-sneak preview a few months back and liked what we saw: a family of diminutive components with near-identical chassis, all enticingly priced in the region of £300. This, the DAC, is the first one of the family that we’ve seen. We certainly like the design. There’s a good variety of sizes of DACs around, but we think the UD-H01 is about right, at just over 21cm square and 5cm high.
Pros: Smart, compact box delivers sufficient pride of ownership, good connectivity, supports hi-res audio, exciting sound
