Some DACmini History

If you frequent Hi-Fi forums, you know ExpatInJapan, founder of HeadPie. He said this, referring to the original DACmini: "It was a one-of-kind community think-tank project. We will probably never see another like it." To which we replied: "Now, wait a minute..."


Since the original DACmini, we launched half a dozen award-winning HiFi products. The original DACmini is still going strong, but it's time for an update. Perfect timing, since Apple has made important updates to the Mac mini line recently. DACmini 2 is building on a proud legacy and is destined to become the ultimate audiophile desktop DAC.  Thanks to our community and suggestions from audiophiles around the world, we arrived at the right design and feature set to make DACmini 2 a strong evolution of the DACmini legacy.
