Naim DAC-V1 Review
Simply by connecting the DAC-V1 to your PC, Mac or Laptop via a standard A to B USB cable, the quality of your music will be defined not by the limitations of the computer hardware, but by the quality of the data itself. And with DAC-V1 that can be incredibly high, up to 24bit/384kHz resolution.
While the DAC-V1 is perfectly suited to being positioned on a desk near a computer it is also highly versatile. It can integrate seamlessly into a traditional hi-fi system or be used with any two-channel digital audio source such as a games console, satellite box or any other device with a digital output via one of its five S/PDIF digital inputs. The DAC-V1 can also be combined with the Naim UnitiServe hard disk music server and its matching power amplifier, the NAP 100, to create a compact high-end music system.

The DAC-V1 has all the standard virtues of a Naim Audio piece of kit. It has the energy to be hard rocking and dramatic yet at the drop of a hat display the subtlety required for delicate pieces of music. The whole time everything is beautifully woven together and nothing sounds disjointed or detached.
