"The DAC2X is a very captivating music maker. If you like to listen to all manner of music in all manner of formats including streaming, and you want it all to sound stunning, muscular where called for, incisive, powerful, with superb clarity and edge-of-your-seat dynamics, the EMM Labs DAC2X has what you're looking or longing for."
"The updated emm Labs DAC2X is much better than the DAC2X I reviewed and loved back in 2012. Both for technical reasons and sonic reasons the 2X is like a new DAC when compared to the previous iteration. The technically sound MDAT2 DSP and hardware updates enabled me to hear a much more focussed version of my music than previously available in the same DAC. I noticed improved soundstage, clarity, and detail without losing a note of musicality. The updated emm Labs DAC2X is a digital to analog converter capable of satisfying the most demanding PCM and DSD music lovers. (Even more) Highly recommended."
