Anyone who might have read any of my recent articles here detailing my experiences with creating a low-cost, computer-based audio system has probably picked up on my new mantra, which, distilled into its most basic form is, essentially: Just enjoy the music! And that’s basically what I’ve been doing—not fretting over technical details, not imagining how great things could be if only—I’ve really, sincerely, been spending a whole lot of time listening to a whole lotta music, and seriously enjoying my system’s synergies and surprisingly good performance level.
The CEntrance DACport LX seems to fly in the face of audiophile tradition and expectation. It is not overly large or heavy. It doesn’t have a half-inch thick, brushed aluminum faceplate or rare, exotic materials. It doesn’t possess any mysterious newfangled take on the world of physics. It doesn’t have a power supply big enough to operate industrial power tools. What it does have, based on a couple months of daily listening, is some solid, sound engineering. In other words, this little thing works, and works well.
DACport and DACport LX are reference-quality, stereo 24-bit / 96kHz Digital to Analog Converters (DAC). They sound so good, they reveal the subtlest detail in your music. DACport includes a Class-A Headphone Amplifier. DACport LX is designed for people who want to use an external headphone amp. Featuring CEntrance’s proprietary AdaptiWave™ 24-bit USB audio technology, JitterGuard™ clock management system, and highest dynamic range, DACport and DACport LX redefine the portable USB DAC.
