- The machine supports Bluetooth playback, with the highest levels of CSR8670 audio-specific Bluetooth chip, CSR8670 is the industry supports digital output of a high-quality 4.0 Bluetooth chip, the signal straight into ES9018S decoding, and support for APTX lossless transmission, powerful, excellent sound quality. Most of the market compared to using conventional decoding Bluetooth player has the absolute quality advantage.
- Input Select: CD / AUX / BT / USB / COAXIAL five audio input selections.
- Output options: Headphone output / can control volume preamp outputs (balanced and unbalanced RCA outputs).
- unique patented technology core tube amplifiers difference the hybrid full discrete parts design, including tube differential amplifier, preamplifier, driven amplification, power amplification and tubes feedback recovered, combines the properties of transistors and tubes, so that sound more delicate gorgeous , while both transistors rich transient, sound thickness, density and quality thrust, which is the other tube and transistor design lines cannot reach the height of the sound level.
- Fully discrete power amplifier configuration of high-fidelity headphone amplifier design, strong thrust, rear gain switch, 8-1000Ω impedance completely adapted.
- Aluminum structure design, high-grade refined aluminum knob, high-grade paint, beautifully elegant, is your first choice for high-end desktops MINI DAC audio system.
- sides of the chassis and the top of the elegant transparent acrylic using a large area cooling hole design, machine temperature rapid dissemination, keep the machine running at low temperature, low heat.
- Volume potentiometer units produced using double precision potentiometers, imported high-quality carbon sheet, precise control, channel balance extremely well.
- Power switch and input selector switch all units produced genuine quality parts.
- Power supply filter capacitor capacitance by the British NOVER and some Nissan high-frequency low-impedance audio-specific capacitance debugging sound and timbre. Affect the sound quality most obvious decoupling, feedback capacitor using Nichicon MUSE series, the highest level of KZ series of audio-specific coupling capacitance, signal transmission using Elna silmic2 coupling capacitance. Nichicon KZ series of high-frequency capacitance gorgeous, IF charming, low dive good, sweet voice and delicate, and Elna silmic2 capacitor has a transparent smooth and detailed sound with excellent resolving power. Hi-fi grade materials without stingy at cost
- This machine adopts relay all of the original Japanese Omron Relay, stable and reliable quality.
- PCB using double-sided, black oil, Shen Jin, RoHs design, 2 oz copper thickness, 2U Shen Jin, signal transmission loss is minimal.
- When the DAC clock oscillator used in all the expensive high-precision, low jitter silicon crystal, TCXO common, higher clock accuracy compared to excellent stability, low jitter, high bit-rate digital signal mediation accurate sound better.
power supply and host separation design, the complete elimination of a host of power disturbances, power adapter is a high quality linear power supply, also known as bovine (non-switching power supply), to ensure a good voice, the power of high quality pure red copper core, to ensure that this Machine very low background noise and stability (according to different regions use different voltage power adapter, the default is 220-240VAC).
- The machine adopts copper gilt RCA, gold plated external socket, precision related parts, genuine core high-precision parts.
