a rather versatile device, and a worthy
partner with some of the better high-end
headphones on the market. If you have a
decent wired headphone, BlueDAC will likely
make it sound better than you've heard it

and Im roaming around the house with
it connected to my laptop via Bluetooth.

Bad Guy Good Audio Unboxes and Reviews
With over 100 licensing clients under our
belt (Benchmark, McIntosh, Lavry, others), CEntrance wrote
the book on USB audio. We designed DACportable as a true 32-bit
device, ensuring"bit-for-bit" audio fidelity, at
all supported sample rates, across all supported OSs.
The art of digital-to-audio conversion is
in the quality of the clock. CEntrance's clock management
system uses military spec clock oscillators with 10ppm precision.
Our JitterGuard clock cleanup system earned us enthusaistic
reviews from Stereophile and dozens of other audio publications.
Capacitors introduce distortion. DACport's
Class-A audio circuit is direct-coupled (capacitor-free),
maintaining audiophile quality all the way to the headphones.
DACport's advanced, low-distortion Class-A
amplifier circuit runs on super-clean 18V rails (±9V,
bipolar supply). Higher voltage means lower distortion, higher
headroom and more output power to drive any headphones.
Our products are sold all over the world
and we go to great lengths to ensure compliance with international
regulations. DACportable is RoHS, FCC and CE-compliant, which
ensures safety and protects our environment.
DACportable is designed and assembled by
CEntrance in USA from components sourced from around the world.
When you purchase our products you are bringing manufacturing
jobs back to America. Thank you for your support!
Rechargeable Li-Polymer, 20 hours
play time (bluetooth input)
BlueDAC supports, in addition to
the standard SBC codec, APTX, MP3, AAC and Faststream codecs.

"Mission Impossible: An audiophile-worthy
Bluetooth portable headphone amp."
"If you have a decent wired headphone,
BlueDAC will likely make it sound better than you've heard
it sound before... if you own a recent iPhone that lacks a
3.5mm headphone jack, and have a set of expensive wired headphones,
BlueDAC would be a wise investment."
- Steve Guttenberg, CNET
"What a find!"
"Bluetooth from iPhone to BlueDAC
convincingly outperforms a direct-wired connection that relies
on the Apples inferior D/A conversion and headphone
