Comment of notes:
"Having done so, the first impression was that the top end detail is extremely good"
"The overall presentation is open and airy, aided by the open-back design and space between ear and driver."
"It has a great sense of the performance, and there's an impressive feel for the soundstage that the recording has."
"The sense of decay from instruments and their relationship to one another is also especially impressive."
"It is comfortable, sensitive and easy to use for long periods of time, and if your musical choices tend toward acoustic or orchestral pieces, then it's worth seeking out over many of the others here. A most impressive product at the price, then."
"Comfortable, well built with excellent soundstage and tonality."
The Q-DAC supports hi-res 24-bit/192kHz files via the coaxial digital input, with support up to 24-bit/96kHz over optical and USB. The Audiolab Q-DAC is a stripped down version of the multi award winning M-DAC.
