Adding or upgrading your digital to analog converter (DAC) will help you hear more nuance, clarity, and better music this summer. There is something magical about music on long summer days. Who can forget songs like:

Summer DACs For Audiophiles, Music Lovers & Newbies
Want to hear, feel, and experience your music bigger, better, and warmer this summer? We have digital to analog converter (DAC), headphones, and audio cable recommendations for audiophiles, music lovers, and those new to high fidelity sound.
Audiophiles love music, gear and technology almost equally. Many audiophiles know the best pressing, recording, and sound engineers associated with favorite albums. They love music with muscle, nuance, and silence. Albums such as Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd and Head Hunters by Herbie Hancock press their high end audio gear to produce great sound.
Dark Side of the Moon
Audiophile DAC, Headphones, and Audio Cable Recommendations
Audiophiles demand the best audio tech available. That's why we start our summer DAC audiophile recommendation with Chord's powerhouse digital audio converter the Hugo 2. "Stunning," is how one Hugo 2 buyer describes his/her Hugo 2 experience. Stunning is an appropriate label when listening to Focal's Utopia partnered with Moon Audio Black Dragon cables too.
Music lovers were in a band in high school or college. These days they listen to more music than they play. Music lovers listen to their favorite obscure artists and albums on smartphones, pads, computers, turntables and in their car usually paired to an iPhone or iPad. They may work in cubicle farms or they may have served you dinner waiting on the ever elusive next gig.
Bach Goldberg Variations
Music Lovers Home and Away
Music Lovers have one set of audio gear at home and another for work and travel. They want the best audio gear their budget can afford and their committed to better sound.
Buyers new to high fidelity audio may not know a DAC from a DAP. New to high-end audio may be listening to middle-of-the-road gear that suffers from a variety of sound issues including lack of clarity and distortion. College radio has helped form eclectic tastes from Dr Dog to Arctic Monkeys.

Newbie Audio Upgrades
Adding a DAC to middle-of-the-road gear can only improve the sound so much. That's why we suggest upgrading from Beats or Bose to better-sounding headphones, a great Chord DAC and great Dragon cables. Dr Dog never sounded so good.
