Excellent sound quality

Phil, Crutchfield
16 November 2015
  • Summary: This unit provides an excellent sound quality. The construction is solid and the volume control for the headphone is very smooth. My primary complaint is that it doesn't have a "line input" for playing mobile devices. It appears to be designed for only computer use or headphone use.

Audioengine D1

Jace, Crutchfield
28 September 2015
  • Summary: The D1 is a must buy for anyone looking to get more out of their current setup. As others have said, bass is more pronounced and full, the highs are crisp. Awesome product, not to mention they power my (250 ohm) headphones nicely.

So much value

BigEd, Crutchfield
31 March 2015
  • Summary: So I'm an audiophile who mostly listens to analog but wanted to try PC audio on my system. I've tried a lot of different USB DACs ranging from $30 to $2000 and this one fits perfect in my system.
  • Pros: It has great energy in all frequencies and is very resolving
  • Cons: None

Unstable in OSX Yosemite

Eddie, Crutchfield
13 March 2015
  • Summary: My D1 worked great prior to installing OSX Yosemite. Since upgrading, the sound begins to decay and start crackling and the sound eventually becomes garbled to the point it cannot be listened to. Turning the unit off, then back does resolve it temporarily. This is done several times a day.
  • Pros: Compact, easy to use.
  • Cons: Can't use under OSX Yosemite.

Awesome with A5+

md, Crutchfield
30 January 2015
  • Summary: I purchased the DAC because I wasn't getting the quality I expected out of my Audioengine A5+ speakers. After some research, I learned that the problem was likely due to the low quality headphone jack built into my Dell laptop.
  • Pros: Matches well with Audioengine A5+ speakers. Improves sound quality as intended. Visually attractive. Solid construction.
  • Cons: Had to make a leap of faith that it was a good purchase. Unsure how it compares with cheaper DAC alternatives.
