In this video, we’ve compiled our 2019 Top DACs Under $500. If you are in the market for a Digital to Analog Converter, DAC for short, you probably understand there is a lot of room for improvement for the DAC’s that come in our smartphones and computers. In this video, we’ll go over some of the best DACs under $500 to help you make the best DAC purchasing decision. But first, if you’re unfamiliar with a DAC, here’s the quick download:
The DAC is the magic part on the inside of almost all consumer electronic gear that translates the digital audio signal of 1’s and 0’s back into music for our ears to enjoy. Hence why it’s called a Digital to Analog Converter.
When you use an outboard DAC in your system, the inexpensive DAC inside your computer or smartphone is totally bypassed, letting your music come through a lot closer to the original source.
You’ll hear improvements in DACs as you move up in quality due to several factors. First, there is the quality of the DAC chipset. Second, the design of the supporting electronics for the DAC and finally, how well the DAC deals with timing. Reassembling all the 1’s and 0’s is already a tough task, but putting them all back together with the same timing they were recorded with is even tougher.
We’ve picked a handful of DACs that we think do a remarkable job for under $500. Most of these have a simple way to connect to your smartphone for improving sound on the go, and all of them can be used in your home audio system.
