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.

Hear Every Detail In Stunning Clarity and Fidelity
Whether you're building your FLAC file collection or subscribing to a premium music streaming service, you are investing in a higher quality listening experience. Groove unlocks the full potential of that experience, revealing definition, clarity and details like you have never heard before.

What is a DAC and why is it important?
If you're a music lover and you want the best listening experience, one of the key ingredients in the quality of your sound is the digital-to-analog converter or DAC. A DAC takes the digital information on your computer and translates it into analog sound you can hear through your headphones and speakers. Your computer has a DAC built-in, however without a high quality DAC like Groove, you will miss out on much of the subtlety, detail and dimension of music you listen to – regardless of what headphones or speakers you use.

i'm sure they compensate for it with internal regulators
