Audioengine D1 24-Bit Computer Interface - Grey/Black - AD1 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing just works. Absolutely great Have you spent a decent chunk of change on your audio system and headphone jack or AirPlay your tunes off your laptop? Then this is the absolute best, most cost effective improvement to your audio system. Sound is substantially improved. Depth, width, warmth and balance of sound are all upgraded by adding the D1. ALL music will improve. Of course the original files need to be good quality. Do your research and understand bit rate a little, this can't fix a poor copy. Basically, all purchased music will definitely be better. IF you start with quality headphones or speakers or a quality system. It's a really affordable leap towards audio perfection through a computer. Believe me, I'm just a guy...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really improved the sound on my high end headphones I have only tested these with headphones and not speakers, but they definitely made a big improvement over the built-in soundcard on my computer for the headphones I've tested. There's not much point in using this kind of product unless you have some fairly high-end speakers or headphones (at least $200+ I would think), since it can't really improve the sound reproduction on products that aren't able to adequately reproduce it, but on the higher end you definitely benefit from a better quality signal being send to the headphones or speakers. A lot of higher end headphones will also benefit from a separate amplifier, which these can also serve as since they draw power from USB. In doing research before buying this product, I found that it seemed to perform comparably to many of the much-more-expensive competition, which definitely played a big factor in my decision to buy this particular DAC. I have not had a chance to compare it to any of it's more-expensive brethren, but I am extremely happy with it's performance, and can't imagine how it could do any more for my music. I noticed an immediately noticeable and significantly improvement across the board in terms of sound quality compared to my previous Iogear GUADT51 product, though I definitely found the quality of the digital file makes an even bigger difference when using something like this. This is never going to appeal to the casual music listener due to the price, and true professionals and audiophiles will likely spend two or three times as much just to get even a slight improvement, but in my opinion, if you're an enthusiast looking to get more out of your music without going crazy in terms of price, the Audionengine D1 offers stellar performance at a budget attainable by mere mortals.
