Summary: First of all, I have to say this is a pretty good product, though I'd say if you want great sound from your laptop, it's a bit overkill - go for an instead, much easier, just a USB stick-sized DAC, and you're set.
Very transparent detailed sound, very flexible, can be use as a digital pre-amp

Summary: As other reviewers have noted it take a few weeks to run in. Initially I preferred some of the smoother algorithms (e.g Slow Rolloff), but after a while settled on the Optimal Transient setting, which is stunning, I've never heard so much emotion in recorded music, especially the vocals where you...
Summary: It's really a fine piece of equipment. I would say it would be very hard if possible at all to find better sound for this price. The rate is not only for the sound quality, but also for the support we can get from John Weslake himself (the product designer).
Summary: This dac will dramatically improve the sound quality of your system whether you use a cd player and a digital out or connect your computer through a USB cable. My portable system consists of a laptop, a 1 TB external hard drive on which is stored a large collection of classical music in flac (I have...
Summary: Pure and pleasant sound. It is simple to use, well built, looks nice. For the price, this is a great product. There are a few 'could be betters'.... Sometimes, you don't get sound through the USB until you have switched to another input and back again.
Summary: I don't expect you to buy such an expensive piece of equipment based on my review alone. You'll probably read a lot of those online, and let me say it really is as good as they say. I did own a high-quality, external sound card before and I thought it was great...
Summary: Bought this as a step up from a Beresford 7520 (which was already very good). Used mainly in combination with Sennheiser HD650s and is excellent. Sound is well rounded but with bags of detail. Highly recommended.
Summary: This DAC needs at least a week for the sound to settle in - straight out of the box, it can sound a little "thin". After being run-in, its sound is amazing - fabulous imaging: deep as well as wide with some height to the soundstage.

Summary: Die laut Zeitschriften in Deutsch vorhandene Bedienungsanleitung lag nur in Englisch bei. Die Garantiekarte ist nur für Bewohner des UK gültig, obwohl der Hersteller in der Nähe von Düsseldorf seinen Sitz hat.
Summary: Klanglich ist der M-DAC ein echter Brite, im Vergleich zu einem DacMagic und DacMagic Plus liefert er ein detaillierteres, tieferes und deutlich feingezeichneteres Klangbild. Bei vollem Frequenzspektrum bemerkt man plötzlich mehr Tiefgang, differenziertere Höhe und in der Mitte einfach Mehr, was...
