This digital to analog converter is even smaller than our original Sabre DAC and offers most of the originals' qualities at a even lower price and smaller size! 

The HiFimeDIY Sabre Tiny was developed by DIY (do it yourself} enthusiasts in the purpose of making a really good but cheap dac that could compete against regular commercial DAC's costing many times as much. It utilises a DAC chip from ESS Technology, whose DAC chips is highly regarded. The ES9023 chip is their simplest DAC chip which keeps many of the features of their bigger brothers at a minimal cost. We made this new familiy member even smaller and cheaper

What is different from the slightly bigger brother?
- It uses the PCM2706 USB receiver chip in place of Tenor TE7022, which limits it to max 48kHz/16bit inputs
- 12Mhz osc instead of a crystal used in uae23.
- No optical output
- Might work on more devices (Android etc.)

- Volume level can not be controlled by volume hot keys (updated, it doesn't work in either MAC or Windows)

What is the same?
- Sabre ES9023 chip
- 2.2Vrms output

Which one should i get?
The new Uae Tiny is almost as good at a lower price. If you don't mind paying the additional dollars, go for the uae23 version (Hifimediy Sabre DAC). If you want to save a few bucks and don't need 96/24 this newcomer should be a good option.

Used for:

- Mac, Windows and LInux computers.
- Confirmed working with iPad 3 (iOS 6.0.1) using this USB hub: http://hifimediy.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=90
-PCM2702 USB received chip might work with Android and other non standard devices
 
Features:
- Output on 3.5mm headphone jack.
- No drivers required for Mac, Windows and Linux!
- Normal line level output (2Vrms) when connected to amplifiers/preamps. For headphones the level decreases down to 1Vrms for 32ohm headphones
 
Highlights about Sabre ES9023 dac chip:
- The sound go straight out of the DAC chip and into your headphones or amplifier. It is not needed that the sound signal go through a capacitor to remove a DC voltage, there is no DC voltage to remove! This omits the need of a coloring cap which adds costs and reduces sound quality.
- Jitter Eliminator! The ES9023 utilISed patented HyperstreamTM architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator.
- 112db DNR
 
USB (receiver) PCM2706:
- Accepts up to 48kHz/16bit
 
Output levels:
Open 2.2Vrms
4.7Kohm 2.1Vrms
1.8Kohm 1.9Vrms
510ohm 1.5Vrms
330ohm 1.3Vrms
30ohm 1Vrms
Note: Normally amplifier inputs are from 10K to 100K ohm. Normal headphones are from 32 ohm to 250ohm.

I tried this with my IEMs, and they sounded muddy and lacking treble. For those, I recommend the 9018D. I think the problem is that the impedance on this is too high for IEMs. So it stayed in my closet unused for like a year, and out of curiosity I tried it with my HD800 -- now it was clear, the highs were there -- and the bass was POWERFUL. I'll be using this when I want to hear pounding bass with my HD800!

Works perfectly on my Android tablets, the Asus Transformer Prime TF201 (with the Asus USB-Type A adapter) and the Cube U25GT Super Edition (with a micro-USB OTG to USB-Type A adapter), with Onkyo HF Player or USB Audio Player PRO. So far the best compromise in terms of size/versatility/quality/price!

Wonderful little device. Use this mostly with a Google Nexus 7 2012 model running CM. Sound from my tablet is now so much better with this little dac. Have also tested it with laptop running Win 7 and a Chromebook, no problems with either. Considering what I paid for this it's been one of my best bang for buck audio purchases.

I'm not ready jet for appreciate the sound quality improvement, maybe it sound more detailed and wide. But the first thing i really appreciate it's that i can turn off the volumen near to zero and the sound quality continues being great.

Works perfectly plug and play with OSX and Windows. Inability to control volume with software mixer is a good thing, means the stream is bitperfect regardless of volume setting. Measures transparently and sounds great. Only downside is the flimsy plastic shell construction, but what can you expect for $30.
