HRT MicroStreamer USB DAC Sweepstakes

Register to win a HRT MicroStreamer USB DAC (MSRP $189.95) we are giving away.

According to the company:

microStreamer is a USB-connected and powered ultra high-performance dedicated  amplifier/sound card designed to seamlessly interface with computers, tablets, smart-phones and directly decode the digital audio data stream from the host’s hard drive into analog music for headphone or speaker listening. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and light enough to carry in a shirt pocket, the microStreamer is the newest and sexiest product in HRT's line of award winning DACs. 

When music is digitized, it is ‘compressed’ into a digital format of ones and zeros – the job of decompressing the music and turning the ones and zeros back into sound is usually done by a computer but because computers are built to do a lot of things, sound is not their top priority. Cheap sound cards are used to keep prices down so the music you hear coming out of your computer is not complete – there is a loss of sound.  microStreamer was developed to reverse this loss of sound.  It takes over the job of processing and decoding the music from your computer – so you end up with sound as it was meant to be heard – clean, clear, loud and present. 

The microStreamer was made for anyone who wants better sound coming out of their computer.  It can be used for music, movies or games.  The microStreamer will bring the listener a more full, present and inside experience.

1.4 V rms output for headphones, yet it uses their usual 2.25 V rms line output level?

I wonder what they're doing inside.

Oh yes, it will be mine.

emartinezpr's picture

I could use a better one than my current one.

Cami's picture

The listed specs of this tiny unit are so convincing, that I can't help but to imagine that in 5 years from now, they'll be offering a neural implant version with digital crossover wirelessly communicating to a 1TB storage hidden in a false tooth or a piercing. It will run on synaptic activity and send a wireless signal to a pair IEMs without crossover. It will include an intuitive volume control that works by raising your eyebrows, and of course customizable DSP settings that you create with your spatial imagination of the musical venue, and that are stored as neural patterns.

Tunnelvision42's picture

I have always been curious about HRT's stuff, I have heard great things but they underwhelm me at the price with so many other great dac's they compete against.

baba black's picture

 Been listening, all day to musical noise from my built-in soundcard - while reading Tyll reviews ([^_^])
