The exaSound PlayPoint and its
companion e32 DAC are miniature masterpieces that illustrate that
excellent sound doesn’t require large components. The DAC is small
enough that it would make a particularly good choice to pair with a
computer, especially since it has an excellent headphone amplifier.
Because it uses the increasingly popular Roon playback software, the
PlayPoint is a great alternative to running Roon on a PC or laptop. You
get the advantage of Roon’s very attractive interface running on a
tablet or another PC or laptop used as the control app. And Roon is
relatively easy to set up. Of course, the best user interface in the
world is useless if the equipment running it sounds bad. Fortunately,
the exaSound gear sounds fantastic—and retails for reasonable price.
