MQA-Supported Beam 2

Hilidac has created the MQA-Supported Beam 2 which enables you to experience the abundant music details in the artists' recording room.

The Beam 2 is the first true BAL + Non-BAL dual earphone ports USB product to offer an integrated MQA renderer hardware, making MQA playback easy and complete. That means allowing it to connect to an MQA Core signal and complete the final unfold step of an MQA file. The Beam 2 LED glows magenta to indicate the unit is rendering an MQA stream or file, where the final MQA unfold is delivered.


The Beam 2 features DUAL ESS ES9281C PRO and Dual OP-AMP CHIPs, it also comes equipped with two ultra-low Femtosecond phase crystal oscillators designed to provide best-in-class audio performance at 118 dB DNR and 0.0003% THD + N.

Good and warm

It’s a good DAC but when is working the temperature is very high

Jeffrey Kuperman
Not bad for the money

It sounds very good. I like that I can listen to my FLAC, DSD and MQA music with the same device. It gets uncomfortably hot to the touch very quickly. And it requires easy-to-drive headphones to achieve a decent sound level.

Don't trust appearances! This DAC is a mistake...

One of these purchasing mistakes, you, hopefully, are not going to make! It all started with the original USB-C to lightning cable stopping working within days. Linsoul kindly sent a replacement, which lasted for another month or so. Although the listening experience was itself decent to average, plugging and unplugging the Hilidac dongle resulted in a loud, extremely unpleasant popping sound. The auditory discomfort is comparable only to the the sound of nail scratching on a chalkboard. I had to take the earphones off my ears every time before plugging and unplugging the DAC to the iPhone. But then, 50% of the time, the Hilidac Audirect Beam was not recognized by the iOS, so I had to start from the beginning. Once connected, the Hilidac would pick up electromagnetic interferences from random devices around me, making the listening experience disruptive and annoying. When I contacted the company for support, they sent me a Windows-only firmware update link, although I informed them that I'm using their product in a Mac OS environment. The problem was never solved and Audirect just stopped responding. I was left with a badly functioning device and a bitter taste in my mouth. Eventually, I quit trying to fix it and bought a DAC from a different company (not on Linsoul) for 30% less of the Hilidac Beam 2 price. It was a day and night difference !! In conclusion, despite its sleek, minimalistic appearance and boastful specs, the Hilidac Audirect Beam 2 is not ready for prime time and is a complete waste of money. You may wish to look elsewhere!

Shipping FAQ

Which countries do you ship to?

We are generally able to ship to most countries via Express Shipping, and many countries via Standard Shipping. You may clarify this with our team to check whether Standard Shipping is available to your country.

We cannot ship to addresses that are "PO boxes or APO/FPO".

*Note: Generally, we can only do Selected Shipping to India and Russia. We can only do Express Shipping to Africa, Argentina, Hawaii, Kuwait, Mauritius, Montenegro and Sri Lanka, to name a few.
This may be subjected to changes due to unpredictable issues such as Covid, war, and etc.

How much does shipping cost?

We have two shipping methods - Standard Shipping and Express Shipping.

Standard Shipping is free for most countries, while Express Shipping is 15-35USD depending on your country. If your order is over 270USD, Express Shipping is free*. 

*This applies for most countries. However, large items such as headphones and desktop DAC/AMPs (e.g. HarmonicDyne G200, MUSICIAN MDP-2, and etc.) are excluded.

Shipping fees exclude import taxes or processing fees that may be applicable for your country. Linsoul is not responsible for such fees. Should you refuse to pay the tax/customs fees, shipping fees will still be deducted from the amount paid for the two-way freight charges. The cost of the freight charges may be more than the amount reflected on your order due to tax and other miscellaneous fees.

Some parcels claimed to be “returned to the seller” may be destroyed by the post office or customs officers when buyers refuse to accept their parcels or fail to pay for their taxes. No refund will be processed for such cases.

Standard Shipping via YunExpress is a tax-inclusive option for some countries. However, Linsoul will not be responsible for additional administrative or handling fees charged by your local courier company or customs. Please kindly check this with your local customs.

For certain remote areas, there may be additional charges via Express Shipping. We will contact you if there is a need to make additional payments. 
Please contact us before placing an order, should you have any queries regarding shipping.  

How long does it take to receive the order after it is placed?

For in-stock products, your order will be shipped within 3 working days. You may check with our staff regarding the in-stock status of any products. 

Customized items will take a longer time. Please contact our staff for more information.

On normal non-sale days, once your parcel has been shipped out:

  • For Standard Shipping, it takes about 2-4 weeks for items to be delivered after shipping out. For some countries, it might take up to 2-3 months, depending on your country, its customs and other factors.* The duration for transit is something beyond our control. Linsoul will not be making refunds for such cases. Please consider an upgrade to Express Shipping or keep the waiting time in mind.
  • For Express Shipping, it takes about 3-7 days for items to be delivered after shipping out.

*Note: Timings might be affected due to festive seasons or other unforeseen circumstances

What happens if the parcel has been shipped but not delivered?
  1. First, kindly contact your local courier using the local tracking number.
    If your parcel were to be in transit for at least 3 months, it may have been lost in transit.
    For orders below $50USD, you may either opt for a one-time reshipment of parcel OR a full refund of the amount paid in cash via PayPal/Credit/Debit card.
    For orders above $50USD, we will only process a 50% refund of your order paid in cash via PayPal/Credit/Debit card. Should there be any concern about Standard Shipping, you are encouraged to opt for DHL Express Shipping instead.
  2. Customers are to bear the consequences and fees incurred, if the parcel was undelivered due to any of the following situation:
    • Wrong address or phone number provided by recipient
    • Recipient was uncontactable when courier company contacted
    • Refusal to sign for the package by recipient
    • Lost or damaged parcel because recipient opted for “no-signature delivery”
    • Refusal to pay for the local tax/processing fee by recipient
    • Refusal to provide supporting documents for custom clearance by recipient
Who will pay for the import tax/custom fees

Customers have to bear any form of custom/import/processing fees that are applicable for your parcel.

Should you be unwilling to pay for the fees and reject the delivery of the parcel, you will still have to pay for the shipping cost. Linsoul will only refund the amount of your order after deducting the two-way shipping fees incurred.
