Taga Harmony 32Bit/384kHz skaitmeninis analoginis keitiklis DA-300 v.3 SAK (DAC)
The powerful, slim and elegant piece of art
delivering best music directly from your digital source!
The 3rd version is a miniature Digital-Analog Converter, which converts digital audio signal from any digital source to high class analog audio with clearer, richer and more powerful sound.
It allows to connect a range of digital source devices via one of 3 digital inputs (USB, Optical and Coaxial) and a built-in reference high-resolution 32bit / 384kHz PCM, DSD USB-DAC (ESS Sabre32 Reference ES9018K2M with patented Time Domain Jitter Eliminator and SA9227 chip) will always provide the best sound performance. The USB DAC input is a perfect choice for playing digital music from computers, music servers or compatible smartphones.
Analog output with high-end solid machined brass RCA sockets ensures the best signal transfer.
DA-300 v.3 offers stunning sound performance embedded in a very rigid and luxurious steel-aluminum casing.
Thanks to its small dimensions it can be easily added to any audio system, a computer or a video game console – it can be almost “invisible” but can change your digital music to a thrilling music experience.
“…The designers managed to achieve a truly astounding level of details without side effects. In that aspect Taga DA-300 was the best affordable converter which we have tested. It did not give Matrix Mini-i a chance, but also made Myryad Z20 and Audeze Deckard feel slightly embarrassed.
Thanks to this small box we can really hear a lot, nothing slips away, sounds are clear, clean, lighted in the way that we can easily keep track of individual instruments, even in a fairly complicated mixes…It is great.
The next award for the small TAGA is for its sound space. To be honest, I did not expect such a performance for the money…I was very surprised. First of all, a huge momentum of the scene…a large amount of air between the sounds, the freedom and the absence of any restrictions. Music has a lot of room to fade away, nothing is compressed nor closed… The sounds emerged freely on the far sides, above me and on the back of my head.
The small Taga DA-300 sets the virtual sound sources closer and farther, higher and lower (!), accurately lays out the stereo scene from the left to the right, everything is precisely kept in check, nothing is mixed up…
Taga managed to develop a very affordable device which avoids a trap of many budget components. This small DAC sounds with surprising resolution and details, but not with clatter nor surgically. The sound - despite a slightly withdrawn midrange - is very coherent and consistent. The transducer plays brightly, lightly, clearly, with good dynamics and speed, the sounds are not greasy and slow. A mild dryness in the mids is compensated by sound spatiality which is phenomenal for that price level. Such a space is really something! Taga DA-300 is a very interesting offer for those who want to start their journey into listening digital files and for people who want to improve the sound of their a DVD, BlueRay or an affordable CD player. Recommended.”

Vividly and clearly
"How can such an inexpensive DAC sound like? My answer is - not bad! With some musical genres – even exciting! This little black box has something that one can listen for hours... offers a dynamic and clear sound, not boring at the same time, without aggression...
TAGA Harmony has a bit of smoothness, which I like so much, so the device beyond the purely technical aspects of good sound, such as speed of response to changing rhythm, offers a bit of finesse, so the sound is smooth to listen to. This in turn makes many music genres, especially jazz and classical music, sound without excessive nervousness.”
To the rescue
"TAGA Harmony DA-300 turns out to be a panacea for the miserable sound quality from a computer sound card. By connecting this small converter to a laptop or a desktop computer via a USB cable (supplied with the device - solid and shielded), I became convinced of its beneficial effect on the sound… The DA-300 operated in an asynchronous mode ... so it is not susceptible to the contaminated noise clock signal generated by the computer USB port."
"The DA-300 achieves excellent sound value for money .."
