What Makes It Special

  • Sub <$75 for a great DAC and Amp in one unit for one price

  • Multiple input and output options with the ability to accept USB, fiber optic, or coaxial and output in RCA or 6.35 mm headphone
  • An entry level DAC/Amp that is powerful and can drive even high impedance headphones

Our Thoughts

The FX Audio DAC-X6 is one of our top picks for an entry-level DAC/Amp. While the visual design isn't anything to write home about but it's solidly built both on the outside and the inside. The large volume knob is easy-to-use, the selectors for input and output are clear and convenient to change and overall it does what it needs to do. On the inside, the components are all strong picks which results in a DAC/Amp that performs very well. This means that as you start owning more headphones, the DAC-X6 will not become obsolete because it couldn't "keep up".

You really get a lot for the price and the FX Audio DAC-X6 would be our sub $75 entry level choice. It performs well as both a DAC and an amp (due to its good choice of internal components) and you get both in one unit and for one price.
