Does is support to android 8.1 devices, Pls anybody have idea about pls post reply fast because I wanted to buy this for my android device and drop is about to end
Brian12
Most newer androids are fine, they all support USB audio now.
Whenever I connect this to my phone it keeps pulsing as if connecting over and over, anyone else experiencing this?

It's possible your phone doesn't offer enough power. Consider using a powered hub in between. DACport HD features a very powerful amplifier capable of driving almost any headphones. That amp takes some power, so it's best to use the HD with a laptop.
I'm not part of this drop but picked one of these up during a previous one. I just wanted to chime in to say that I'm VERY happy and impressed with my DACport HD after a couple of months of use. I use it to drive my Sennheiser 6XXs daily and they pair up wonderfully.
I understand pairing it with my 32 ohms Beyerdynamic DT770 seems to be overkill. However, I am sure I will enjoy the dedicated DAC and also the native DSD support. Regarding the amp, I am wondering if there are still some benefits even for 32 ohms cans? And should I set it to low gain for my 32 ohms DT770? If anyone has experience with this combo please let me know. Thanks!
I'm not familiar with higher end audio equipment. When buying headphones for this device, what specifications should I follow for the best experience?
how much power does it put out in low gain?
can it power and enhance the sound of my Sennheiser HD6XX and 1more triple driver? i use an iphone to play my music...

Works great on my Sennheiser HD6XX nice smooth very revealing detailed music with plenty of power and a nice accurate soundstage.
The most excellent device! Listen to it for couple of years and love it more and more. Tried to find something similar but still no match. I also use DACportable as, guess, portable:). Also amazing sound! I just wonder why not more people use it. Much talk about finicky Chord etc. Try to compare them side by side. I feel Centrance should be everywhere especially considering generous pricing! I wish they would find better designer, their Blue DAC is outright ugly.

I have one for sale at lallens@outlook.com
What are the international warranty coverages on the DACport HD? I'm based in Australia.
Dybido
We offer 1 year warranty, worldwide.

fellow oz. Gday
Also, is there a delay on shipping?
Probie24
We always ship right away.
Does this work with an iphone 7 plus? Do I need a camera adapter with it?
The Centrance download page is not working. Please, if you downloaded the driver successfully, please upload it to dropbox or google drive, or something and post the link here. Thank you.

Thank you, kindly. I just installed the driver and all the noise and sound distortions disappeared . I guess changing the micro usb cable and the laptop USB port helped in this regard as well.

Great to hear! Enjoy!
I've just received an email stating that our shipment has been delayed with no further updates.. not even a newly estimated shipping date was provided.. wth man. This was my first drop and I'm darn excited and waited 'till the original shipping date (27th Sep) 'cuz I can't wait to get my hands on them and try them out. But alas I was greeted with great disappointment with a "Sorry your shipment was delayed" email in the morning. It's been 3 weeks since the drop was confirmed and order was placed with the vendor; that should provide ample time (15 working days) to sort out the logistical arrangements. I could be wrong however (and I hope so), unless @CEntrance is willing to sheds some light on the delay.

Huh. Weird. We had sent everything to MD weeks ago. The delay is not on our side. I'll reach out to MD tmr and ask what the issue is. We thought everything was fine.
CEntrance
Thanks for the reply! Its reassuring to know that our order did went through and could be with MD by now. Please do let us know and I hope this delay can be sorted out as soon as possible.
Is there something wrong with the beta drivers (8.0.1?) for this in Windows? I installed them for kicks, even though the one before (7.4.19) worked because, well, the stable release was several years off and there are always a lot of under the hood or undocumented changes that are usually pushed to release candidate/beta software that I was wondering about. I'm only on Windows 7 though.
However, it seems that the DACport HD with this 8.0.1 driver doesn't feature 24 bit Windows DirectSound drivers. What the hell? There are only 16 bit options available in the Windows sound properties and even the ASIO panel has been tweaked, so it automatically sets your sample rate and bit depth based on what a host program reports, instead of letting you choose. What the hell to both of these! Not having 24 bit DS drivers must be a mistake, for it means that anything using the default "just output sound windows" command effectively is stuck in 16bit.
I'll probaby just downgrade back to the previous driver, but I'm surprised things would have turned out like this. Fortunately, I've saved the installed. CEntrance's site is being redesigned literally right now, as in there is no page for a variety of products, I see placeholder texts, you can't download drivers, nothing.
hypocrite
Try emailing info@CEntrance.com they helped me yesterday to get the Driver for my new DACport HD
I currently own the DACport; does the DACport HD have the similar "tunnel/cylindrical sound effect" like the DACport?
RisingTide28
There is a good review of it here:

Thanks for your support guys, we are very excited, shipping soon!
Last time I got a product from Centrance, it wasn't compatible with my PC and would cause random freezes/blue screens just being plugged in to my machine. The sound was good but it wasn't worth random freezes and crashes.

How difficult is it to download the W10 drivers?? I bought an xDuoo 2 AMP/DAC and tried and failed to get the drivers to download. Either that or it was a defective item. I had the Geek Squad look at it twice to no avail. Had to send it back. I want to try this AMP/DAC but don't think I will get my refund in time. It is supposed to be delivered Thursday the 6th. Also I am worried I will not be able to get the download to work. Is it a ZIP file?? Thanks:)

You fill out a form and we send you a link. You click the link, driver is downloaded. Any questions --- don't hesitate to reach out. We are here to help.
Hello...sorry newby....can this be used with a Smartphone instead of a Laptop. Will it use the energy from the phone. Thanks for your help !
rpeebles
This is ideal for laptop or desktop computer. It will drain your phone's battery too fast if you use it with the phone, unless you use an external battery.
CEntrance
Thank you for your clarifying reply. Then, when are we going to see DACportable or BlueDAC in Massdrop ?
Sure would be a success ! Will be waiting ! (Hope not too long )
Does this come with a cable for USB?? I am running Windows on a PC.
Bob3600
It comes with a USB cable.
VortexST
Thanks for the reply!!
Is this only for pc or also can plug to DAP ?

I don't know this model, but perhaps the community here could help?
Question for the gamers out there -- would you like to have the ability to connect a mic to the DACport HD to enable full communication, using headphones such as these:
https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-sennheiser-pc37x-gaming-headset
The goal is to retain the HiFi sound quality, but also add the mic channel. Let me know your thoughts.

Definitely! If the mic input is perfect then I'm in for one! Been looking for an audiophile grade DAC/AMP with great mic quality input but haven't found the perfect one yet.
There's only a few devices on the market to choose from and I already tried two (not gonna name) of em and both seemed to have a subpar microphone quality. One degrades the microphone quality significantly (which sounded like being in a cave) and the other has a noticeable hiss. A cheap $5-8 USB Sound card's mic quality is way better than these two. Not sure why such companies leave out one of the most important key in a gaming DAC/Amp/Soundcard.
Hope Centrance does it right! ;)
CEntrance
Sounds a great idea as long as the price is competitive as I have a product which costs more than the HD but is more powerful and also have USB powered one with a 3.5mm headphone out and a 3.5mm mic input which costs hell of a lot less. All depends on cost and ways maybe to keep the price lower while retaining quality.
The great thing about this product from centrance. You getting something that has better tonality than a dragonfly red. But also has the capability of running 300 ohm headphones to full capacity. In a super small form factor. Hats off the centrance for bringing the drop back.
Stunt
Much obliged ;)
How does it compare to NAOS and Soundkey?
Does this support android? cause if it does that would be awesome, also i would run this with tidal to play music.
Odrazilef
Yes it does!
Odrazilef
Yes and yes you need an otg cable. I use it and ots great. IOS is more complicated needs the apple camera adapter
does it can use with android mobile phone ?
raawee
I believe it will work with Android. Best to check with Centrance. Last I heard IOS 10.2 was the last iteration that worked on Apple. Latest is 11.4.1.
I have 2 of the original DACport Slim that Massdrop introduced in 2015 and have used them daily since. It's still working and sounding great. They run warm but so far that hasn't affected their performance. However, I also purchased a DACportable, the battery powered version. To my knowledge, Centrance was never able to make that one work with IOS; so mine is still sitting in it's box :-(

I'll try that. Thanks Michael
Inabit
You need the Apple camera adapter and your Dacportable will work with IOS. I have all three Slim, HD, and portable. Use it with my Ipad 2017
This is a really nice device, small, really solidly built, and packs a lot of power!
Has a very tubey sound, and resolves a lot of detail from my phone.
I hope we can see more centrance products here down the line.
jgp1212
Thank you very much for your kind comments. We love our Massdrop customers and cannot wait to bring more great products to you!
Received mine 2 days ago and can't fault the power and sound quality. I have installed the latest driver software 8.0.1 and the only options I can pick in the windows audio options is 16 bit 44100 Hz to 192000 Hz. I have no 24 bit or 32 bit option. I am using Windows 7 64 bit.
Am I just missing something?

I got the email from your colleague, thanks for replying.
These are very good for the price especially paired with USB regen for better power supply and reclock.
