Portable Listening Amplifiers and DACs: First Look


Join Rob Rives as he talks with resident DAC expert Dan Bockrath about the ever-growing portable listening amp and digital-to-analog converter category, here at B&H. The two focus on the newly released Shure SHA900, as well as the TEAC Ha-P50, the Denon DA-10, the tube-driven Fostex HP-V1, and the Sony PHA-3. They compare the feature sets between the five models, and provide some idea of the scenarios in which you might want to employ a DAC or headphone amp in your mobile setup. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at BandH.com.
