Amazingly Revealing  

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.

Bit-4-Bit Digital Audio


With over 100 licensing clients under our belt (Benchmark, McIntosh, Lavry, others), CEntrance wrote the book on USB audio. We designed DACportable as a true 32-bit device, ensuring"bit-for-bit" audio fidelity, at all supported sample rates, across all supported OSs.


Precision Clock Oscillator


The art of digital-to-audio conversion is in the quality of the clock. CEntrance's clock management system uses military spec clock oscillators with 10ppm precision. Our JitterGuard™ clock cleanup system earned us enthusaistic reviews from Stereophile and dozens of other audio publications.


Class A Headphone Amp


Capacitors introduce distortion. DACport's Class-A audio circuit is direct-coupled (capacitor-free), maintaining audiophile quality all the way to the headphones.


18V internal power


DACport's advanced, low-distortion Class-A amplifier circuit runs on super-clean 18V rails (±9V, bipolar supply). Higher voltage means lower distortion, higher headroom and more output power to drive any headphones.


RoHS Compliant


Our products are sold all over the world and we go to great lengths to ensure compliance with international regulations. DACportable is RoHS, FCC and CE-compliant, which ensures safety and protects our environment.


Made in America


DACportable is designed and assembled by CEntrance in USA from components sourced from around the world. When you purchase our products you are bringing manufacturing jobs back to America. Thank you for your support!

"My favorite CEntrance product so far"

"The sound quality is wonderful. One gets lost in the music rather than the gear.... I found the DACportable overall to be an excellent performer on all points, this is my favorite CEntrance product release so far. CEntrance has taken all that is good from their earlier products and folded it into this smaller package."
