Emotiva Stealth DC-1 Review

Emotiva Stealth DC-1 Review

If the Emotiva Stealth DC-1 DAC, headphone amp, and preamp does what Emotiva intends, you’ll never hear it. That’s right, the whole point is to get out of the way and let your source shine. The $500 price tag would be worth it for the DAC and headphone amp or the DAC and preamp alone but Emotiva gave you all three for that price. That’s amazing from a company that I thought was done amazing me. The Emotiva Stealth DC-1 – if it isn’t on your Christmas list, you need to reevaluate your priorities. Highly recommended! MSRP: $499
