I listen to music through AKG K271 headphones, up till now I had them plugged into my computer, they sounded OK or so I thought. I judt scored and hooked up an Audioengine D1 DAC 24 bit Digital to Analog converter. I am amazed at the sound quality, I am hearing music I never heard before, I mean I'm like damn I never heard that cymbal before, and the bass is extremely tight. If I close my eyes it's like I am at a concert, I can see Tommy on his guitar, and JY on his rhythm guitar and Ricky on his bass guitar, and Lawrence on his keyboard. This DAC is amazing Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
