With all the different dongles and knickknacks wandering about on the technological landscape, one commonality remains present — big tech is getting smaller and smaller. Nowhere is this more apparent than with Meridian Audio’s Explorer, a USB-sized device that plugs in to your computer’s drive and proceeds to blow its sound card out of the water.

Explorer replaces your computer’s card with a USB-powered DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) featuring Meridian’s high quality audio circuitry and design derived from Meridian’s award-winning Reference Series components, along with a powerful headphone amplifier with on-board analogue volume control. It plays nice with pretty much every application, including iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, or with a hi-res downloaded file. Just plug and listen. That simple.
