Erich said: T+A Elektroakustik’s philosophy of high science and engineering, as evidenced in their most reasonably priced DAC, has resulted in a highly capable and flexible audio component built to an exacting standard. With its excellent soundstaging, clear imaging, and neutral overall sound, the DAC 8 DSD is an accomplished modern DAC.

Read the SoundStage! Hi-Fi review.

The gist: Highly competent German DAC in a small form factor.
