Dual DAC - AKM AK4493EQ

Features two AKM AK4493EQ DAC chipsets, natively decodes up to DSD256 and 32 Bit/384kHz with stellar dynamic range and resolution.
When operating in Mono mode, the DAC will deliver better dynamic range, signal to noise ratio and channel separation.

Fully Balanced Design - Powerful 800mW Headphone output

The DAC outputs the hot and cold signal streams identically except for the polarity.These will go through LPF and a headphone amplifier in parallel. When L+,L-,R+ and R- are transmitted and processed independently, common-mode noise will be cancelled out and cross-talk will be reduced. The differential headphone amplifier outputs the difference between the hot and cold signals, and this will increase the output power and channel separation significantly.

Ed Meyette
Best for the money

If you appreciate music the way it was recorded and intended to be listened to without being processed by equalization this is awesome. If you are into the over emphasized treble and/or bass don't expect much from this fine, quality designed equipment.

Lee Underwood

Alex K
Great quality & very good size

Recommend it! Quality of the sound is very good, plus this great analog tube sounds makes me happy with my favourite playlists.

Kevin Self
Fantastic DAP...Tube sound...Superb Sound Quality

I am very impressed with this DAP. I really enjoy switching between the Solid State and Tubes when I plug in my IEM. There are 4 different sound modes and each provides a slightly different flavor on the replay. It pairs well with Flagships such as Sony Z1R or UM Mest, but also with an affordable iem like BLON BL-03 or Thieaudio Legacy 3. The clean output of the solid state or the warmer sound of the tubes should put a smile on your face and have you toe tapping to your music on-the-go.
