Portable Powerhouse

Building off of the success of CEntrance’s highly regarded DACport and DACport HD, the DACportable is a great pairing for laptops, Androids, and iOS devices. It features an AK4490 DAC chip and a Class-A amplifier with a digital volume control, all packed in an anodized aluminum chassis that balances stylish looks with durability. There's a long-lasting lithium-polymer battery that provides over 8 hours of play time. The custom-voiced EQ has been pulled from the award-winning HiFi M8 amp, which CNET dubbed "the best amp ever tested." In addition to working with standard 1/8-inch audio cables, the amp is also compatible with Apple Lightning USB devices.

The Reviews Are In

Describing the noise floor and sound, Headpie says, “With my sensitive Campfire Audio Andromeda and no music playing on gain 1, there is virtually no hiss. Very near a black background. Whilst the DACportable retains the CEntrance in-house sound signature, it appears to my ears to be a lighter, clearer, and more detailed product. It loses a little of the warmth that some of the earlier CEntrance products had, but retains the power and fullness."
