Henry Audio is:
High Fidelity From Your Computer
Open Source Hardware

If you like music and have it stored or streamed on a computer, a USB DAC will sound a lot better than the analog output of your computer. The Henry Audio USB DAC 128 is developed by an online group of enthusiasts and sold by the Norwegian company Henry Audio. It is a High Fidelity Digital-to-Analog converter with surprisingly good sound for its price. Just see our reviews.


The Henry Audio USB DAC 128 is an Open Source Design. It will sound great just out of the box. But those so inclined are invited to continue developing it and sharing their discoveries. The Henry Audio USB DAC 128 is identical to the QNKTC AB-1.2. Only the logo has changed. Everything you read about the QNKTC AB-1.2 also applies to the Henry Audio USB DAC 128.


The USB DAC 128 has analog RCA outputs. Pair it with your favorite headphone amplifier or home stereo. It supports asynchronous USB Audio and sample rates up to 192kHz on Mac, Windows and Linux.

Reviews

People are saying great things about our product

“The USB DAC 128 is top of its class”

“Put simply, if you’re in the market for a DAC, I would advise you to place the DAC 128 at the top of your must-hear list.”

“The sound is smooth, spacious and well textured, and this is completely unexpected given its very modest price.”

“You get the sense of a crisp autumn morning with brilliant sunshine throwing everything into sharp relief.”

“The Q DAC pushed the track into the room with fantastic top end and mid range transparency...”

“I haven’t heard a DAC even triple its price that comes close”

"It has the sort of presentation that one associates with high end converters."

"It resolves low level detail uncannily well and makes all manner of recordings sound good."

En teknisk artikkel om prosjektet som ligger bak AB-1.2. Det er også et bilde fra lab’en og en god forklaring på asynkron USB. Bildet viser et reelt debug-signal fra firmware i DAC’ens prosessor.

“I bruk er konverteren en fest.”

“Fantastisk lydkvalitet til en utrolig lav pris. Mer er det nesten ikke å si. Bortsett fra ‘løp og kjøp.”

“Den låter luftig, detaljert og dynamisk. Det er lett å plassere instrumenter i lydbildet, og det hele låter rett og slett veldig naturlig, åpent og avslappet. Utvilsomt et meget godt kjøp!”

“Tett, veldefinert bass, nøytral klangkarakter, veloppløst og detaljert uten tegn til skarphet. Kjapp, dynamisk spillestil.”
