"That is what the Exogal Comet represents for me, a sizable step
toward a sensation of living sound, not a reproduced electronic
production. Though we still cannot completely capture the nuances of a
live performance, the Comet is superb at rendering a sensation good
enough to fool the ears. The Comet is my favorite DAC in the under $4K
space, and should be heard by anyone seeking a no-compromise digital
experience. Especially for those with lesser digital file playback
systems, this DAC can save your system, and revolutionize your listening
experience. It is the only digital treatment to best the reigning 32
bit high frequency scheme."
"The best news is that Exogal has just gotten underway. The Comet
blazes a wide and bright path toward future products, and the savvy
system builder would do well to own the Comet, and pay close attention
to Exogal’s future components."
In their Component list for 2015 they siad:
"Sweetest DAC: The Exogal Comet does not simply alter the digital signal, it replaces the signal entirely.
I’m a believer; for the past six months no matter how much I refine the
signal (Remember the HQPlayer software? I have it feeding the DAC now
with 32 bit/6.1MHz!) the Comet DAC turns it into golden sound. The Comet
even makes streaming music from Rhapsody, processed at 16bit/44.1kHz,
more than acceptable for casual listening. The preamp section of the
Comet is stupendous, so clean and robust it will complement the most
gorgeous amps. I have used both extremely high power and low power amps
with it, both with outstanding results."

In the Hifi + review they said: "The Exogal is remarkable value for money and could quite happily sit at the hub of many a high-end digital system. "
Exogal (which means Out of this Galaxy) is a Minnesota company that makes DAC's and amplifiers. Its DNA comes from original Wadia engineers. Jim Kinne who designed the original Wadia gear is legendary and did the original Wadia DigiMaster™ products that are still considered exceptional. Jim is now designing state of the art products at affordable prices.
Exogal Comet is a high performance digital to analog audio converter
(DAC) that is also a pre-amplifier with an analog input for your phono stage. Just connect your computer, or other digital or analog sources, and
experience exceptional audiophile quality sound. The Comet DAC does
everything you would expect a high-end DAC to do, including balanced and
unbalanced analog outputs, digital volume control and asynchronous USB
input - all at a sensible price.
The Comet uses an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) for its DAC. That means that unlike the competition that uses a commercially available DAC chip from from companies like ESS, Wolfson or Burr brown, the Comet is all programmed by Exogal and is upgradable over the web. So it offers built in NON Obsolescence.
reviews have been exceptional.
THE ABSOLUTE SOUND REVIEW May / June 2015
Review of the Comet by Vade Forester.
says: "As a DAC and front end for digital sources, the Comet is a
spectacular success and, especially at its moderate price, I strongly
recommend you audition it in your system."
Read the whole review on The
Absolute's Sound's website
and more – the word on the street about Exogal is spreading. Here is another new
comment – this time from Jeff Fritz while reviewing a $65,000 dollar Swiss-made
amplifier. Yes, the Exogal Comet is his Preamp/DAC.
setup has changed over the past year. I’ve ditched my analog preamp for a DAC
with input switching: currently, the Exogal Comet ($3000)
with optional external power supply ($600 if purchased separately; you get a
$100 break if you buy them together, for a total of $3,500). The Comet has
increasingly impressed me over the past few months. In fact, it’s fair to say
that I didn’t rave hard enough about it in my review (to be fair to myself, I
didn’t yet have the external power supply when I wrote that article). It’s a
giant killer. The external power supply added solidity to the soundstage and
“blacker” backgrounds overall, thus raising the performance level several
heard such a detailed, resolving DAC at this price. ... It sounds great not
only for its price, but regardless of price." Soundstage
AUDIOSTREAM REVIEW 3-5-2015
Michael Lavorgna reviewed the Comet.
He says: "I'm not going to sugarcoat this: The Exogal Comet DAC is one fine sounding piece of technology."
Ultra High-End Audio and Home Theater Review
Berryman gives EXOGAL’s Comet DAC a glowing review and concludes that
the “...Exogal Comet has few if any peers in its class..”
All reviews have been with the stock power
supply. We were shocked at how much better it is with the upgraded power supply
now available for only $500.00 with purchase of the DAC or $600.00 as an add
on if purchased later. The new Exogal software allows the digital volume control to lose
no resolution at any volume level so it makes a great front end to drive
an amp. The analog input allows connection of an analog source such as a
phono stage so no preamp is required in a digital system with a
The Comet is designed for real-life listening with sound that’s amazing, whatever the setting. It offers easy digital upgrades for hardware and software. It is controlled by the Exogal Remote App for Android or Apple iOS as well as the included remote control.
