Super nice build – Solid! Volume knob feels GREAT. Like the LEDs a lot. No overdone distracting light show, pleasing to the eye. The clarity in the high end was literally like a veil being lifted off. A major advantage is being able to travel with it and hear the same thing at any studio. Having the DACport means I can monitor separately with superior sound quality.

DACport Pro’s Headphone Amplifier is borrowed from our acclaimed Hi-Fi products. It supports a variety of headphones and features audiophile sound quality. You may just find yourself using it to listen to tunes between gigs. The volume knob feels solid and comfortable, which helps the product double up as a Monitor Controller in a home studio.
Play your mixes, consistently, in any venue
You are a successful recording or live sound engineer. You work in the box, in many studios and live venues. Unfortunately, they all sound different and it takes time to adjust your mixes to sound consistent. DACport Pro fixes that. It’s a portable, mastering-grade DAC with XLR outputs that you can take with you anywhere. Connect it between your laptop and the house console. Just like that, your sound signature is preserved. Now your work sounds the same everywhere, so you can spend less time tweaking and more time creating.
Play virtual instruments as they were meant to be heard
You are a keyboard player who uses Virtual Instruments to play live on a stage, in a church, or in a studio. However, if you use Mainstage, Keyscape, Omnisphere, Trilian, Ableton, etc., you may not be hearing the full power of these modern high-quality samplers. Don’t do your expensive software a disservice! Connect DACport Pro between your MacBook and the sound system and suddenly, you can feel the samples breathe! You can also use DACport Pro to practice in headphones. You won’t believe the audio quality you’ll be hearing.
Play your DJ sets in high-resolution, in any club
You are a professional DJ who plays different venues. You trust Serato DJ Pro to deliver incredible performances. But how do you connect your laptop to the club’s sound system? DACport Pro fixes that for you. It features professional, balanced XLR outputs for easy hook up to any sound system. Unleash the power of DJ Pro by connecting DACport Pro to your laptop. Stream in pristine quality, every time. Play your set in audiophile fidelity and make the groove bounce.
Add a monitor controller to your home studio
You have a home studio and use powered monitors to check your mixes. Problem: The volume control on the speakers is hard to reach. Enter DACport Pro. Put it on the desk, connect to your DAW as the output device (it supports low-latency ASIO if you work in Windows) and suddenly, you have a high-quality volume control at your fingertips. Our professional potentiometer feels solid and is a pleasure to adjust. Mix on monitors or over headphones — the choice is yours. The audio quality will be there.
