"The Audioengine D3 produces the best sound of any of the mini-DACs I've heard to date. It's easy to carry everywhere in the tiny pouch that comes with it, and the price is no higher than many DACs that don't sound as good. Highly recommended!" Full review

"I need to do more comparisons, but the D3 is actually pretty darn close to my $399 DACport so far, as a preamp or headphone amp!" Full review
