Should you get yourself a DDC?

I thought it over many times. Saw plenty of reviews. Some positive, some indifferent. We know there are enough snares to make you spend. Then, how to know if you don’t try? I did, and I am happy. I’ve combined the DDC with my Pontus II, which is already a great DAC and noticed an immediate effect on sound quality. Especially in the rendering of bass, which is tighter and deeper. That’s all I want. So, if your budget allows, do consider a DDC. It is not snake oil. A special thank you to Headphone zone. They didn’t take time packing and delivering the item to me. It arrived at my doorstep in Delhi the next day. A great experience. Cheers!

Hey Prateek, thanks for taking out time to write this review. This makes us so happy that you are satisfied with your purchase and had an amazing experience with us. Keep the music playing!
