HRT MicroStreamer USB DAC/Headphone Amp Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and light enough to carry in a shirt pocket, the HRT MicroSreamer was designed with portability in mind. The MicroStreamer is a USB connected and powered, ultra high- performance external sound card for computers, tablets, smart-phones or any compliant host.
Dual purpose built, it incorporates both a high-performance headphone amplifier with an analog volume control that allows you to connect the MicroStreamer between your computer and headphones; and a fixed-level, low impedance 2.25V line output that allows you to connect between your computer and home stereo, other entertainment system or to powered loudspeakers.
“The HRT microStreamer has raised the bar so high in its category I hope it gets all the accolades it deserves. In uber-portable headphone amp/DAC combo solutions for the computer I can’t think of another component outside the Audioquest Dragonfly, which to my ears doesn’t have quite the dynamic punch of the microStreamer that even approaches the sonic performance of this miraculous little aluminum brick.
It’s like an audiophile’s reference-system-in-a-box. You have to hear it to believe it.” – Michael Mercer, Positive Feedback Features: Compact and portable. Asynchronous Mode Operation eliminates timing errors (jitter).
