Audinst’s HUD-mini Value-Priced Compact DAC file

Not every piece of equipment has to be perfect- and very few items that we test out can claim to reach for such an impossible goal anyway. Sometimes, you have a budget, or it’s simply physically impossible to balance competing demands- we’d all like infinite battery life, light weight, and incredible durability, but there are limits.

Audinst HUD-Mini: A Great Portable Amp/Dac Solution file

I feel the HUD-Mini is neutral, detailed and accurate in sonic presentation. Sound-stage width is moderate. Depth is pretty good. Absolutely zero audible hiss/noise. No channel imbalance, and zero EMI pickup & pops.

Audinst: HUD-Mini - review file

The HUD-Mini is Audinst's second ever combined DAC & headphone amplifier. The relatively new Korean company may be unheard of in traditional hifi circles but for affordable USB audio their first ever DAC/amp (the HUD-MX1) has made quite an impression.
