Bitstream BTS-300 USB DAC AMP ***Cheap***

Recommended Posts

Just grabbed a couple. For usd 19.90 delivered why not !!!!!!

Will only use on laptop probably but am interested to see everyones replys as to how these things rate. I just bought my first little amp ( Fiio e10k ) to go with some new Hifiman 400i's ( just starting out in headphones ) so will wait to see how this bitstream compares.

Im sure if the bitstream outruns the dragonfly it will outdo the e10k too.

So Benjet how did the exchange rate go as I notice you checkout in USD's ?

Ahhhh. Just looked at credit card and came to AUD 27.93. So 14 dollars each. Absolute bargain if they are ok.

Wow it beats a dragonfly? That's really cool i will have to grab a few. If only it had optical for chromecast audio it would be the bargain of the century. Still definitely worth it

In my system I preferred it’s sound signature. I won’t go as far as say it is better than the Dragonfly as that’s subjective. But for $15, it’s certainly many magnitudes better value.

Also I shouldn’t take credit for it’s discovery as Mark@scumbag was the person who told me about these.

How does this stack up to say something like the in-built DAC on a LG v30 ?

Received invoice for the 2 dac's from Parts Connexion ( Canada ). Shipping marked as USD 11.65 ( so about AUD 16.20 ) which is then changed to free shipping as per their promotion. So take away the actual cost of shipping and the TWO dacs I ordered come to USD 8.25 ( about AUD 11.50 ).  

 

No complaints here.

Ditto. Keep one in the briefcase and one in the car. Never know when you might need a dac/amp!

Looks like they've jacked the price by 50%, now $14.95. Bought one anyway. Man I feel ripped... 😭😭

Bit late to this party but bought one too for $14.95 USD. Still a bargain in my book as I’ve been looking to buy a dragonfly for a while.

Nah they don't have tracking. I asked their customer service and they said no tracking, even though their initial email said "tracking number enclosed in invoice".

That's strange.. I was sent a tracking number that seems to work. Only ordered it the other day though, so not much movement yet.
