HRT’s little Music Streamer external DAC units have been well received – Gary Pearce had one to review and he gave it a pretty good review.
The local HRT agent, Denco Audio has announced the release of the new iStreamer model, which is designed to take the digital stream from an iPod, iPhone or iPad (a la Wadia iTransport) and output it as an analogue signal after running it through a DAC. This should give better sound quality than just using Apple’s internal DACs and analogue stages.
Limited stock will be available in NZ as of next week at $375. I’m dying to get my hands on a review unit to compare to the Pro-Ject Dock Box Fi that I bought recently.
