Audinst HUD-mx2 DAC file

Arguably the most successful USB DAC I’ve seen now returns bigger and with more ammo, but this time in a world more packed with competition. Even now, I still think that the HUD-MX1 is still incredibly competitive for the price bracket that it’s competing at. For a high $100 price, what other DAC can compete to it? I’ve seen it take on famous DACs during its time and come out superior. What is ther...


Audinst HUD-mini file

Tras mi primera y gratificante experiencia con el Aundinst HUD-MX1, uno de los mejores DAC+Ampli dentro de su gama de precios, tenía buenas expectativas puestas en este nuevo producto de la marca coreana. La primera sensación es que el HUD-Mini es el hermano pequeño del HUD-mx1, en parte podríamos decir que sí, en cuanto a tamaño se refiere por lo menos, sin embargo, existen bastantes diferencias t...


ЦАП и усилитель для наушников Audinst HUD-MX2 file

Корейская компания Audinst заработала себе имя, выпустив очень успешный ЦАП/усилитель для наушников HUD-MX1. Он был достаточно тепло встречен пользователями за счет удачного сочетания компактного размера, доступной цены и хорошего звука. Но почивать на лаврах долго — неудачная идея для любой компании, поэтому инженеры Audinst разработали новую модель HUD-MX2, о которой я и хочу рассказать.


Audinst HUD-MX2 : Versatile DAC/AMP Combo file

Audinst HUD-MX1 must be the most recommended budget entry audiophile DAC/Amp combo, while they are still a good DAC/Amp combo, but after years they are better players and competitor keep popping out in the market.


Worthy successor to the original HUD-mx1 file

The Audinst HUD-mx1 compact DAC/headphone amp was a great little unit. It also happened to be one of the very first reviews that I did at HeadFi. In the subsequent years I've gone on to review dozens of other products from amps to DACs to headphones and more, and I also went on to become something of a "real" reviewer at InnerFidelity. Through all that, I've never stopped recommending the Audinst m...


Audinst’s New DAC: HUD-Mini file

isclaimer: I received a free sample from Audinst, and they are also a site sponsor. I wasn’t aware that Audinst was working on a newer replacement product for the HUD-MX1, but the moment that I received an email from Audinst about the HUD-Mini, I was very excited because I expected to see an upgrade to the HUD-MX1 (which by now have been in the market for two years). The HUD-MX1 gave us an affordab...


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. As the name suggests this new model is smaller than their first. Apart from the size the main external change is the lack of a mains power connec...
