Little Mighty Wonder!
Have really enjoyed this little mighty wonder. Being such a small, lightweight device, it is nothing to toss in my backpack and carry along with me. Installation was a breeze... downloaded the provided driver from CEntrance's website and installed. Verified on my laptop under Control Panel->Devices that my laptop was using the DACport for audio. All set and ready to go! And boy does this little device provide a ton of power!! I have tried it out on two of my laptops and a few IEMs as well as a couple of headphones. Everything sounded fantastic because there was no thin tunnel like sound as if something is so far off it is barely getting through to you. With the DACport, your music is up front and personal... full bodied. Be careful when you first hook up to the DACport. I did not realize my seemingly low volume setting would be instantly so terribly loud. About jumped out of my skin when I first turned on the music. So.. just watch your volume control until you get used to knowing what setting to use for this little beast! For anyone that uses the Tidal app on Windows, I had to go into the Tidal app settings and point to the DACport before I was able to hear music via the DACport. To do this, open the Tidal app, press Ctrl + P for settings. Select the second tab 'Streaming' and scroll down until you see 'Sound Output'. Then use the dropdown selector to select your DACport. My only semi-negative for the DACport has to do with the connections... specifically the Micro USB (type b) on the DACport. I subtracted one point for use of older components in the build. I was somewhat surprised because I own several other portable amps/dacs that have been purchased in the last year. All have USB-C connections.. not the older Micro USB connection that is used on the DACport. The pictures for the DACport make it hard to identify what type of USB connection is used and unless I missed it in the write up, the only mention of USB was "Input power: USB bus". Somewhat vague since there are several types of USB. Micro USB has been pretty much pushed aside in consumer electronics for USB-C. USB-C is a faster connection and can be used to input/output power. Given all of this, I do not feel the Micro USB took away from the DACport’s performance. Though, I do hope on future modes, CEntrance replaces the Micro USB connection with USB-C if only for a general higher compatibility.

Very Impressive
I bought HD58X Jubilee a year ago and was just driving it with the DAC/Amp on my MOBO. The sound was great, but it gave me hearing fatigue within 10 mins. After pairing it up with this device, the whole listening experience gets an impressive improvement. I just can't take my headphone off now. So glad that I bought this!

I use it with my work computer. It produces decent quality sound with plenty of power (300+ Ohm). As many pointed out, it gets bit warmer.

작고 소리 빵빵해요!
잘쓰고 있어요. 작아서 좋고 볼륨도 충분합니다. 최고로 좋고 신기한건 아무것도 틀지 않고 볼륨 노브를 최고로 올려도 히스노이즈가 없어요. 대단합니다.

It sounds fantastic. It can drive even Sennheiser HD800 at more than acceptable volume.

Definately a keeper
This tiny thing has more than enough juice to power HD6xx with no problem(be sure to keep the gain setting to high). Sound wise - this thing is great with buttery smooth vocals and great low end.

Impressive
Exceptional performer in an ultra portable package. I'm pairing with Beyerdynamic DT 177X GO from Massdrop. Everything fits in a Slappa headphone case. High res 3D presentation without any hint of fatigue. Very satisfying setup.

I decided to pack light this week and have listened to this setup every night since leaving home Monday. The Massdrop Beyerdynamics DT 177X Go is the only headphone I've tried with the DACport HD but this is a setup I could easily be satisfied with as my only headphone system. It checks all the boxes I need checked. $500 and change takes you there.

Simple, easy to use and clean sounding DAC.
I've been a CEntrace user since their DACport; and this DACPORT HD is the perfect replacement for a portable DAC+AMP, plus it doesn't have the "tunnel" effect which the previous DACport version suffers from. Furthermore, it pairs well with the Sennheiser HD6XX. Would recommend to a friend!
