Five-star D 1050 DAC Review in Hi-Fi Choice
November 20, 2013
The editors of Hi-Fi Choice agree. The D 1050 USB DAC is in its own elite class of new-age DACs. On the D 1050's industrial design, Hi-Fi Choice noted its "cool case design" that defies traditional DAC designs, but it's in the sound where the editors found their hi-fi haven. The panel commented on its characteristic NAD sound, full of velvety tonality and a touch of upper-mid edge, while one editor made the claim, "this is one of the best, I can hear singing with the musicians, it is good with leading edges and extremely expressive." Fighting its way to the top of the list in the blind-listening test, the D 1050 DAC and headphone amplifier pulled away with Hi-Fi Choice's Recommended Award as one of the top three choices for high performance DACs.
