Despite its low price, the HiFiMAN HM-101 claims impressive specifications such as S/N ratio of 96dB, 0.07% THD and stereo crosstalk of 78dB. Yet it does it in a compact package less than 2 ½" long by 1 ½" wide and ½" thick. Connections are simple with USB input and standard mini output for use with portable audio devices.

"A friend asked me to develop a DAC that everyone could afford yet would substantially improve the sound of any conventional audio product," commented Dr. Fang Bian, Founder and President of HiFiMAN. "The result was the HM-101 which has exceeded even our high expectations. It is truly an affordable product for the masses yet with really good sound."

The HM-101 is available now with an MSRP of $39.
