With so much digital music streaming all over the place these days, the audiophile digital-to-analog converter (DAC) is becoming a very hot thing to have for high-resolution music fans. Denon Electronics is jumping on that trend, and introducing the DA-300USB.
The hook on the Denon DA-300USB is that it can improve the sound quality of that audio you’re cranking out of your computer or other digital source. It’s also Denon’s first stand-alone USB DAC.
Designed to work with a user’s stereo system or headphones, the DA-300USB can provide a boost to media players, CD and DVD players, TVs, the Apple TV, game consoles, and a variety of other digital devices. Users can connect the DA-300USB via the USB-B port or the included coaxial and optical digital inputs.

The DA-300USB has AL32 processing and 32-bit, 192-kHz digital-to-analog conversion technologies. Other features include a DAC master clock, a noise-isolating circuit design, and more. Designed to work horizontally or vertically (using the supplied clip-on stand), the unit also has a pretty packed front panel, with a power button, headphone output and volume control, a touch input selector switch, and an OLED display.
Denon expects to start selling the DA-300USB in March, with a $499 MSRP.
