Bridge the link by in­vest­ing in a good DAC/DAP

HWM (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

Dig­i­tal-to-Ana­log Con­vert­ers ex­ist in prac­ti­cally ev­ery de­vice that plays au­dio files, but the ones that come with your phone, tablet or lap­top gen­er­ally aren’t very good. Good DACs don’t have to cost and arm and a leg, and some come with amplifier func­tions builtin, which will color the sound slightly to suit your pref­er­ence, and also al­low you to use higher-end head­phones.

Of course, this means you’ll have to spend some time test­ing out dif­fer­ent DACs (and/or am­pli­fiers) to find which one suits you best, but that’s all part of the fun. Al­ter­na­tively, you could look at a ded­i­cated Dig­i­tal Au­dio Player, as this would come with a qual­ity DAC and an amplifier to start. Of course, we have some rec­om­men­da­tions to get you started.
