Meet Apogee Groove™

Apogee Groove is the best portable USB DAC and headphone amp for listening to music on your Mac or PC. Groove takes the same high quality audio technology found in the world’s most prestigious recording studios and delivers it to your laptop. Connect Groove to your computer’s USB port and your headphones or powered speakers to Groove’s audio output. It’s that easy. Groove’s output provides ample power at any impedance and Apogee’s Constant Current Drive™ technology makes your headphones sound their best. You’ll be amazed by the difference in sound quality – the precise stereo image, punchy bass and stunningly clear high-hats.

RECORDED BY APOGEE. PLAYED BY GROOVE.

For 30 years Apogee has been an innovator and industry leader in digital audio recording. From rock to classical, hip-hop to country, and reggae to jazz, the world’s most successful artists, producers and audio engineers rely on Apogee gear to capture GRAMMY winning recordings. Now, for the first time, Apogee Groove takes this same recording studio technology and makes it available in a simple take-anywhere device dedicated to delivering the ultimate listening experience.

CONSTANT CURRENT DRIVE™

Groove’s Constant Current Drive output stage dynamically compensates for the nonlinearities – electromechanical or acoustic – of any connected headphones, resulting in lower distortion and a more linear frequency response. Whether listening through earbuds or “hi-fi” headphones, you’ll discover a new level of fidelity, clarity and detail.

QUAD SUM DAC™

Groove also features a Quad Sum DAC™ design which employs four digital-to-analog converters per channel to achieve the highest dynamic range and lowest distortion (THD+N) of any device in its class.

ESS SABRE DAC TECHNOLOGY

ESS Sabre32 32-bit Hyperstream DAC with Time Domain Jitter Eliminator offers unequaled dynamic range, ultra low distortion, and unmatched audio clarity free from input jitter.

  1. 5 out of 5 Noticeable improvement in sound quality!

    I just received this directly from Apogee. I’m not an audiophile, but on my Bose 20 noise canceling headphones, the sound quality is now noticeably better. As source material, I’ve listened to AccuRadio, my own iTunes collection, and ClassicsOnlineHD. I’m not sure what the AccuRadio stream is, but iTunes is 256kbs, and ClassicsOnlineHD varies from 500kbs to 2000kbs, with an average of about 1000kbs. All sources sound much, much better. I’ve listened through a 2014 high-end iMac, and a 2012 Macbook Pro–and both sound equally good. I’m so impressed that I intend to purchase a second one, so I can have a dedicated Groove on both my desktop and notebook machines. From Amazon

  2. 5 out of 5 This DAC performs just as well as the studio converters …

    This DAC performs just as well as the studio converters from apogee (Duet, etc…). The biggest thing you’ll notice is that the bass on all of your tracks sounds big (but not muddy) and the sound is noticeably clearer than your computer headphone jack output. From Amazon

  3. 5 out of 5 This Apogee Groove is the best sounding device ive ever heard flat out

    So I have owned the Dragon Fly, Ifi Mini and various other DAC’s in my life. However, this Apogee Groove is the best sounding device ive ever heard. Its sleek and the build quality is top notch. As for software drivers, it works great with Windows using Foobar and sounds even better on the MAC using Audirvana! If you are on the fence just go ahead and jump over it into Apogee land. This device is flat out Amazing! From Amazon
