PORTABLE DAC: IMPROVING AUDIO ON THE GO

Peachtree Shift Feature Image

A portable DAC and headphone amplifier can work wonders in your life.

Why? Quality sound from music and videos can affect your mood. Researchers have used music to help people relieve stress and even pain. Plus, you have probably never cried watching a movie on mute.

That provides a good reason to get the best audio equipment at Classic Stereo. You can buy the best receiver. Then you can perfectly place your speakers and subs in your favorite room at home. Yet, what about the time you spend on the road?

A portable DAC and headphone amplifier comes in handy when you leave the comforts of home.

WHAT IS A PORTABLE DAC AND HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER?

DAC stands for Digital-to-Analogue Converter. For clarity, your computer or phone already has one. Yet, have you tried hooking up a device with a better DAC and a headphone amplifier? It results in a much better sound. It allows you to enjoy more of the subtle sounds in your music or videos.

Customers use them with their computer, tablet or phone. Companies build portable versions small enough to carry in your pocket or purse. Think about using it at an airport, in a waiting room, or anywhere else you may want to listen to music or watch video.

CLASSIC STEREO TO THE RESCUE: AUDIO NIGHTMARE

Audio Nightmare Blog

Your eyes set expectations for your ears. For example, one of our electronics experts visited a gorgeous home in West Michigan. The builder thought of almost every detail, from marble countertops to top of the line big screen TV’s.  You can imagine the shock when the builder turned on the TV and the sound was muffled. It was an audio nightmare.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE AUDIO?

Sound typically flows from the bottom of your television. In this case, it immediately ran into the marble countertop. Sound bars, speakers and woofers exist to direct sound to where it can be heard. Classic Stereo worked with the builder and furnished the home with the option that worked best.

A COMPLETE EXPERIENCE

Classic-Stereo-Home Theater

When we design and build our award-winning home theaters or media rooms, we think about the whole experience. You expect a corvette to have a strong engine and deliver a fast ride. When you walk into a room that looks beautiful, you expect the other details to be just as good. The audio is just as important as the video, the furniture and the beauty of the entire room.

A SIMPLE FIX FOR YOUR AUDIO NIGHTMARE

If you are looking for a simple and easy way to upgrade the audio on your television, consider a sound bar. It sets up easily and some even have the capability to stream music as well.

Here are a pair of choices you can buy from us:
