CEntrance Releases World's Smallest 24-bit, 96kHz USB DACDACport LX Packs Big Audiophile Performance into a Tiny Tube (July 13, 2011) CEntrance, Inc. announced today that the world's smallest, 24-bit, 96kHz USB DAC just got more flexible. The new product called DACport LX(tm) follows the legacy of the company's award-winning DACport(tm), a Stereophile Magazine recommended audiophile component. "I wholeheartedly recommend DACport: a great-sounding product at a great price!" wrote John Atkinson in his Stereophile review. The new DACport LX is a fixed-level version of the DACport, featuring a line output and no headphone amplifier. It's perfect for connecting a computer or a music server to a stereo system, easily and without taking up precious space. DACport LX features bit-perfect 24/96 audio and does not require custom drivers. It takes its power from USB and is instantly compatible with MacOS, iOS, Windows and Linux. DACport LX is available now with suggested retail price of $349.95 US.
Michael Goodman, Managing Director of CEntrance said: "DACport LX is ideal for those customers who just need an easy way to connect a computer to the stereo system with highest quality. Professional Mastering Engineers already rave about our DAC products and with DACport LX we open up the range of connection possibilities even further, making our compact USB DAC solution even more flexible."
