CEntrance has released the DACport Pro a portable D/A converter, headphone amplifier and monitor controller.

CEntrance DACport ProFollowing the DACport HD, which was designed for hi-fi enthusiasts, the ‘professional version’ of the portable DAC adds balanced XLR output jacks, a large monitor volume control knob and LED vu meters. The new product offers HiFi sound quality to the professional audio community and underscores the company’s focus on both user groups.

‘We’ve all been there – needing to stream music from the laptop into a console or a sound system, but lacking the right cable to make the connection,’ says CEntrance CEO, Michael Goodman. ‘DACport Pro allows users to easily connect a laptop to a mixer or a sound system and offers consistent, high-quality playback in any venue. This function was requested by famous audio engineers, who wanted a small, portable DAC that can be carried from studio to studio with a laptop.’

DACport Pro is a compact USB audio interface providing high-quality output from a connected PC or Apple Mac computer. It features a headphone output and balanced stereo outputs with options for line and mic-level. The balanced outputs may be fixed, or variable, with their level controlled with the level knob – turning it into a Studio Monitor Controller. The device also sports a pair of LEDs indicating power and audio streaming status, and a USB-C connector for computer connectivity.

DACport Pro works with MacOS and Windows-based computers. It supports all standard sampling rates including 44.1kHz, 24-bits up to 384kHz, 32-bits, and DSD. An ASIO driver is available for Windows 10.

In addition to audio engineers, the new unit is attracting early support from keyboard players using irtual instruments, and DJs who play live. Both rely on a laptop to create their sound on stage with DACport Pro offering the necessary connection to the professional audio equipment. To survive the rigors of daily use, the chassis is made of lightweight aluminium. Operation is easy and intuitive.

The CEntrance DACport Pro is shipping now and retails for US$369.99.
