    CEntrance Inc. DACPORT HD reviews

    DACport HD - USB Digital Audio Converter (DAC) + Headphone Amp is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works My issues are the noise floor in high gain and the slightly boosted bass response. But for the overall price/performance, these are pretty small things. It's really a good unit. Probably too noisy for sensitive in-ear monitors though.
