DAP or light weight DAC direct into active speakers ?

Recommended Posts



IS there a good DAP that has a variable line out plus remote control?


If not I would like to use a good lightweight dac + SD card transport.

No, I don't like chord dacs (Hugo 2 obvious choice but I find it boring with time)

This one??  https://www.amazon.com/Astell-Kern-Bluetooth-Remote-Control/dp/B01AU5PKRW/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_4?keywords=Astell+%26+Kern+remote&qid=1556565081&s=electronics&sr=1-4-fkmrnull


Most DAPs have a microSD slot but none of the DAC only units I have utilize memory cards.  Mine are designed for portable or desktop (Sony, iFi, Topping, SMSL, Fiio).
