A Quick Review Of A Few Entry-Level Dacs

A Quick Review Of A Few Entry-Level Dacs

Publisher’s Note: This comparison originally appeared on the Polk Audio Forum. It appears hear courtesy of the author.

A few months ago I set out on a mission to do a comprehensive comparison of as many entry-level DACs as I could get my hands on.

Many people may not consider $500 an entry level price point for a DAC, and I’d agree that the dollar threshold is debatable. Nonetheless, there were DACs nearing the $500 mark I wanted to include and so I set that as the somewhat arbitrary price limit. read more…

Vista Audio Phono-1

Vista Audio Phono-1

Some of the best pieces of audio gear at the various price ranges have a tendency to stay almost invisible. The item blends in so well to the system that one easily forgets that it’s even hooked up.

Grant Fidelity TubeDAC-11 Review

Grant Fidelity TubeDAC-11 Review

I admit it I like things that serve more than one purpose. The kitchen chair that serves as a step stool, my Swiss Army knife, 4-door pickups, and of course the smart phone. I even have a bit of a soft spot for vintage stereo receivers. With that declaration in place, I was honestly intrigued about the opportunity to review the Grant Fidelity TubeDAC-11 as two years ago (issue 55, July 2010) I reviewed the previous model, the TubeDAC-09. read more…

My Review of the Rockus 3D Speaker System from Antec

We have reported on the Antec Rockus 3D/2.1 speakers before, and we even did it twice. One of the times that I reported on them, I stated that I didn’t know what 3D sound was.

I am glad that I have had Antec send me the product itself to try out. read more…

Panasonic TC-L42U30 LCD Television Review

For those of you out there in the market for a new television, you may remain cheered up–despite the fact that the economy is still a wreck, you can always find a new television relatively inexpensively in many cases, and often still putting out a quality show. read more…

Aluratek AUH100F USB to HDMI 720p Adapter Review

While I was reviewing the HD Deck USB to HDMI Adapter from Sewell the other day, I realized that I never reported on the Aluratek AUH100F.

The AUH100F works by connecting it to the computer, then to the TV. read more…

Samsung UN32B6000 LED Television Review

And now, we end a week of reviews with another fine entrant in the Samsung class, the pretty sweet–if a bit small–Samsung UN32B6000. It’s nothing big, but it’s still going to be impressive. read more…

Samsung PN50C430 Plasma Television Review-

Another fine plasma television entry, ahead of the Super Bowl, comes our way today in the form of the Samsung PN50C430, a big, if not all that great, plasma television. It will prove a strange juxtaposition of concepts, but the strangeness will not distract from the overall quality of the system. read more…

RCA RTD316Wi Home Theater System Review

Review of the Pskyo 5.1 PC Gaming Headset

Insignia NS-HT51 Home Theater Speaker Review-

We close out the week with a little item from Best Buy’s house brand, Insignia. And Insignia is sort of a mixed bag, as far as hardware goes. We’ve seen great stuff come out of Insignia, and we’ve seen horrible stuff too. read more…

Sharp Aquos LC-60LE920UN Television Review

Sometimes you can tell high quality just by looking.  It helps when you can look and see that incredible Magnolia logo attached to a new LED television, and the Sharp AQUOS LC-60LE920UN provides that kind of on-sight quality assessment. read more…

Samsung UN40C5000QF Television Review-

I have seen a great many things come out of Samsung, both spectacular and horrendous, and today, I have a new model from Samsung to talk about.  Today we’ve got another in the growing LED line from Samsung, the UN40C5000QF, and it’s on the low end of the spectrum on pretty much every score but price. read more…
