Audioengine D1 DAC/ Headphone Amp (Playback 54)

  • Excerpt: For many older audiophiles, their “conversion moment” when they discovered the world of high-quality sound began when they heard their first piece of affordable high-performance audio gear, such as the NAD 3020 integrated amplifier. But what about today’s audiophiles with computer-based systems? Is there a new piece of kit that’s likely to lure them into the fold? I think the Audioengine D1 might just do the trick.

  • Conclusion: The D1 is happy driving a wide range of headphones – all it lacks sonically is a touch of rhythmic fluidity and a small degree of precision. Still, the D1 remains a fine buy.
  • Pros: Refined, well-balanced, informative sound
  • Cons: Just lacks a touch of precision
