Korg DS-DAC-100m

Alongside Korg’s new curvaceous DS-DAC-100 comes the compact DS-DAC-100m, a mobile digital/analog converter audio system designed to be used for high quality sound on the move.

It’s about the same size as a portable hard drive and offers the same great sound as its bigger brother.
