DACportable – Dotting all the i’s

In 2009 CEntrance redefined portable Hi-Fi with a revolutionary product called DACport, a small, USB-powered soundcard. DACport's amazing sound quality earned it a place on the Stereophile recommended components list for 6+ years!

In 2015 we added HD support, offering DSD playback, picosecond clocks and sampling rates up to 384kHz. The ultra-slim DACport HD immediately became a hit and sold thousands of units within months of introduction.

It's hard to build upon the legacy but we were determined to push the envelope even further. On customers' request, we've added a Rechargeable Battery and our legendary HiFi-M8 EQ, offering total freedom and sonic flexibility.

DACportable dots all the i's. And yet, it's extremely travel-friendly. It is our best portable product yet. Check it out for yourself! You will not be disappointed.
