HRT MicroStreamer USB DAC Sweepstakes

Register to win a HRT MicroStreamer USB DAC (MSRP $189.95) we are giving away.

According to the company:

microStreamer is a USB-connected and powered ultra high-performance dedicated  amplifier/sound card designed to seamlessly interface with computers, tablets, smart-phones and directly decode the digital audio data stream from the host’s hard drive into analog music for headphone or speaker listening. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and light enough to carry in a shirt pocket, the microStreamer is the newest and sexiest product in HRT's line of award winning DACs. 

When music is digitized, it is ‘compressed’ into a digital format of ones and zeros – the job of decompressing the music and turning the ones and zeros back into sound is usually done by a computer but because computers are built to do a lot of things, sound is not their top priority. Cheap sound cards are used to keep prices down so the music you hear coming out of your computer is not complete – there is a loss of sound.  microStreamer was developed to reverse this loss of sound.  It takes over the job of processing and decoding the music from your computer – so you end up with sound as it was meant to be heard – clean, clear, loud and present. 

The microStreamer was made for anyone who wants better sound coming out of their computer.  It can be used for music, movies or games.  The microStreamer will bring the listener a more full, present and inside experience.

I had the privelage to demo the HRT Music Streamer II at a local Head-Fi meet.  I then bought a unit to use as a portable DAC for my laptop and have even bought a few as gifts for a family member or friend.  Their products are amazing and I'm not the only one who can testify to this statement. I would love to own this product.

Hello all! If and when I have the good fortune to have this HRT Dac bequeathed to me, I shall express my sincere gratitude. I am close to completing my custom designed 'diy' 2-channel audiophile system comprised of mini-monitors(vifa-ne+accuton), hypex+mini- dsp based amplifiers, with my source unit being one of my raspberry pi's. The missing link is the DAC, and thus I have an aluminum enclosure ready to serve as the perfect home for the MicroStreamer!! Should I win, I will be happy to provide impressions. Thanks for the opportunity.

Wanderlust2000's picture

Its cool that a company can be so diverse as to enter into the Formula One championship, AND make audio components!

It looks like theyve pulled out of F1 to concentrate on audio.....prob a good choice ;)

Although, Ferrari does 'make' headphones....

So small. So light. What a prize!

tunedtovinyl's picture

Has anyone heard one or used on?  On paper this looks like a great little DAC.  I must admit though I was fairly under whelmed by the Audioquest Dragonfly that I borrowed from a friend.  It seemed noisy.  At first I thought it was my computer but I have a really nice Alienware that has never once given me a moment for pause.  I was just as happy with the sound coming from the headphone jack on it than I was the little DAC.  The Microstreamer may just be the right one.

Pick me please!

corrective_unconscious's picture

Do you look for unintentionally duplicate entries before the drawing, and would one be disqualifying? (It would be the same moniker/registration.)

Can't remember if I already did this one...and there's quite a few pages.

Obviously I'd like this to be my entry.

Merck's picture

I really could use the upgrade.

dmineard HT's picture

I would use this to copy my many LPs.  Retiree without much $$$$ but lots of time to listen and copy LP's.
