Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Great durable all in one solution.

 

I decided to purchase this after reading several reviews on this site and the product somehow surpassed my expectations. For my senn hd600s and my beyerdynamic dt 770s it sounds as good if not better than my modi magni stack all while offering down the...

Aesthetics, Versatility, Upgradeable, Durability, Price per Performance.

No tube for headphone jack and the tube is only usable as a preamp on the side.

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Thick, lifeless sound that is marginally better than computer output.

 

I listened really carefully to this DAC and compared it in four ways: to the Audioengine D1 DAC, the earphone output of a NAD C 720 BEE receiver using either the DAC of the Maverick or the DAC of a NAD CD player, then the DAC of the Maverick and its...

USB is pretty clean and detailed

CD coaxial is terrible, no iPod/iPad usb in, clunky design, no remote for volume at least, no 192 USB option

Fantastic value for the money

 

About Me: I'm just a young man who loves music. My music taste is quite selective but not limited to one genre: I listen to some acoustic rock, melodeath, classical, and soundtrack music. I don't really believe in burn-in, and upgrading cables and...

Versatile with lots of functionality, can be upgraded, good build quality, amazing value

Noise floor, not very detailed

An Audio Upgrade

 

Could not be happier with the D1 .(Bought with Opa 627 upgrade and the ge5670w tube.)$264 delivered. It has done as advertised and upgraded my digital music and movie collection in leaps and bounds. As this is my first unit i can not make any...

Affordable , Upgradable, makes all digital sources sound cleaner bigger and better.

None , as a first unit it destroys onboard soundcard in my mac, pc and ipod

Perfect little gatekeeper for all your audio needs

 

All the other reviews sum up my feelings about this. It's a great all-in-one component. I have my PS3, computer, stereo, and portable devices all feeding audio to the TubeMagic D1. It handles them with ease and doesn't get uncomfortably hot like other...

Tons of inputs, easy source selection

Some interference between sources

Great First Amp/DAC

 

I've only had this for a short time but I love it so far. The xfi soundcard on my computer didn't have enough juice to power my HD650s so I got this to use as an amp and DAC. I'm using the optical out from my soundcard instead of USB because the USB on...

Build quality and lots of input options

USB input does not support 24-bit/96Khz

Digital Never Sounded Sweeter

 

I got the Maverick Audio TubeMagic A1 Hybrid Integrated Amplifier w/ Raytheon 6AK5 tube. It was magic right out of the box. Surprisingly good bass, clean midrange and treble, great soundstage. Incredible value, incredible service, incredible sound....

Natural sound from digital source

At this price, none

Mav D1 DAC Experience

 

This small little desktop dac+headamp+source switcher is one of the single most useful and value for money items out there. It is a huge leap forward in sound quality for people who currently uses onboard pc sound or low-end cd/dvd/blu-ray players as...

Extremely Value for Money

Not the best that money can buy (who cares)
