Looking For DAC like the Samsung Galaxy S Wolfson DAC

I also used to have the original Samsung Galaxy S phone with the Voodoo mod and I loved the sound signature that came from that Wolfson WM8994 chip!

I am looking for a desktop DAC that I can use with my cell phone that would have the same sound signature. It was warm but yet detailed, and powerful.

I was looking at the Cambridge Audio Azur DacMagic Plus, which has a Wolfson DAC, but it is a ​​WM8740 chip instead.

Would this Wolfson chip is as good? Or is there a desktop DAC that has the same sound signature as the original Samsung Galaxy S phone with the Voodoo mod?


I understand that the implementation also matters. So, if anyone who had the Samsung Galaxy S phone with the Voodoo mod would know what I am talking about... and can name any DAC that would be comparable, that would be great!

I really like Audio-GD equipment. http://www.audio-gd.com/Products-EN.htm the r2r11 and nfb11 are in that price range, excellent components.

It is definitely implementation that matters most. A current DAC getting a lot of attention for highly detailed and dynamic sound is the SMSL SU-8 (make sure to get the second version of this model if you go this route). It also includes various options to change the sound signature. And it has remote control functionality.

I forgot to mention that the matching SMSL B2 adds Bluetooth functionality if that is important to you.
