Award-winning Audiolab sound quality is now available on the move, with the portable Audiolab M-DAC Mini.

Pocket-sized, battery powered

With the award-winning ability of Audiolab's M-DAC now available in a pocket-sized, battery powered DAC/headphone amp, you can now enjoy audiophile sound quality on the move. Simply charge the DAC up at home and when you're travelling plug in your laptop and headphones for stunning sound quality on the go.

ESS Sabre DAC 32 for superb sound quality
Renowned as one of the best DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor) available, the 32-bit ESS Sabre at the heart of the M-DAC Mini is a very special device. Banishing levels of jitter and distortion to the lowest levels possible, it gives this DAC a natural and pure sound with low background noise.

Bluetooth convenience
If you'd rather stream music wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet, then the M-DAC Mini happily obliges with its Bluetooth connectivity. Pair up wirelessly and the only physical connection you'll need is the headphone cable.

The perfect DAC for home use
With optical, coaxial and USB inputs (both USB micro-B and USB A), the M-DAC Mini isn't just ideal for music on the move, it's easily able to hold its own at home, too. This full range of inputs lets you get the very best from not just your computer and smartphone but also your TV and Blu-ray/DVD/CD player, too. Compact enough to sit on a desk or neatly beside your TV, the M-DAC Mini gives a huge boost in sound from such a compact box.

Quality built-in headphone stage
Featuring a J-FET Class A output stage, the M-DAC Mini also makes an excellent headphone amp. Whether you choose to hook up to a quality pair of headphones or active speakers, you can be assured of smooth, precise sound, with plenty of power for all types of headphones. Combined with the superior DAC, the quality headphone amp offers a massive leap in sound quality over your smartphone's output.

For a DAC/headphone amp upgrade, the Audiolab M-DAC Mini gives you all of the quality with barely any of the bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible DAC in a small box It worked perfectly with my CD transport and also now plugged in my Apple Airport Express with digital lead and that also sounds much better. I am really impressed with this little device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bluetooth connection Simple and Effective Bought Audiolab M-Dac mini to connect my i-phone 6s to my aged pioneer hi-fi via Bluetooth. Straightforward connection to amplifier via RCA cable and i-phone immediately picked-up M-DAC device on Bluetooth. Sound from Steaming via apple music was an obvious improvement compared to connection to amp via dock - bigger and more clearly defined. I later tried hi-res music files via Tidal music service. This was a huge step-up again - even better definition and warmer sound. Frustratingly, haven't been able to try USB connection for my macpro as I've mislaid my CD ROM unit for this and the USB driver files come on a disc with the M-Dac mini (would be good to be able to download these from website). My Goldring noise reduction headphones also sound so much better when connected via M-dac mini compared to direct connection to i-phone. The size of the unit means that I can easily pack this for taking on holiday or elsewhere. Intend to utilise the optical connection for tv to play tv sound through hi-fi. Overall delighted with purchase.
