Reviews for Soncoz LA-QXD1:-


Audio Science Review:-

I really like to have balanced outputs in a DAC given the fact that they connect to a PC and hence, it is very easy to wind up with ground loops. Usually, balanced output comes at a cost of higher price as it is considered a premium feature. Not the case here. You get XLR output and importantly, with superbly low noise and distortion for a really budget price. The nice case completes the picture.


Given all of this, I am happy to recommend the Soncoz LA-QXD1 DAC. Says “Amir Majidimehr(Amirm) from Audio Science Review, check out the full review here.



The LA-QXD1 is truly in the top tier of measured DACs, regardless of price. The results show a measured SINAD of 115 dB+ and 120 dB of dynamic range. The scientific-focused goal of a good DAC is to be audibly transparent and the LA-QXD1 seems to achieve this. The LA-QXD1 does all the important things (like making beautiful music), and it does them well. Let’s also not forget it sits firmly in the affordable bang-for-the-buck category.

I am happy to recommend this SONCOZ DAC. The LA-QXD1 is an extremely successful, well-built, and well-sounding product. The sound performance is above average, the presence of XLR outputs makes it, at a very low price, an extremely valid product to create a completely balanced audio system.

I can assure you that you will hardly need better performance than those offered by this DAC. The “Achilles heel” of this DAC appears to be the lack of a front screen, but personally, I am willing to accept it in exchange for excellent build quality and top performance if compared to the price of only $ 199 and the fact that is balanced.
