Our original and most selling Sabre dac with ES9023 dac chip, TE7022 USB receiver and includes  USB to optical converter feature.

The HiFimeDIY Sabre DAC 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. You pay for the sound, not the enclosure! We use a small lightweight simple box, so you don't have to pay extra for a bigger and more expensive enclosure. The power supply is very important for the sound quality. We use a high end ultra low noise regulator (LT1763). 

The dac can be used together with the USB Isolator to further improve the power supply quality. The isolator will isolate the power from the PC and give a cleaner 5VDC power to the DAC. We have experienced improved clarity in soundstage and separation using this isolator together with the Hifimediy Dac's.
 
Supports:
Features:
  • Output on 3.5mm headphone jack.
  • Volume Level is controlled by the normal volume control keys on your computer. (no need to use the volume control inside iTunes etc.)
  • 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
  • Quality TYCO gold plated headphone connector
Additional features:
  • Usb to optical converter. Outputs optical signal if you connect a 3.5mm optical cable in place of a 3.5mm audio cable. Can be useful for connecting your computer to another DAC without usb input.
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) chip TenorTE7022L:
  • Accepts 32khz, 44.1khz, 48khz 96khz sample rates. Most USB DAC's use the cheaper PCM2704 usb receiver chips that can only accept up to 48Khz/16bit. 
  • Works in USB Adaptive mode. For a asynchronous alternative, look here.
ASIO driver:
Asio driver for TE7022 version can be downloaded here.
Some older version of this dac used the Savitech SA90223 chip. For this version you need the Savitech ASIO driver available here.
ASIO drivers can provide lower latency, and is to optional to use.  Asio drivers is only recommended for advanced users, and is not required for normal audio playback.

  • Open 2.2Vrms
  • 4.7Kohm 2.1Vrms
  • 1.8Kohm 1.9Vrms
  • 510ohm 1.5Vrms
  • 330ohm 1.3Vrms

Simply amazing dac for the price. Very musical and detailed. Easily beats my Xonar DGX and my thousand bucks Onkyo in sound quality. As of now, this thing is feeding the processor in my car install with (Rooted/modded) Nexus 7 mounted in dash. Works without a hitch. These quys are doing amazing job with their products. 5/5. I'm ordering another one.

This is absolutely fantastic. I run this on a nexus 7, timur usb rom, usb hub with a 1tb hd and it is a flawless beauty over a sennheiser hd600 and my dynaudio bm6p speakers. Nora Jones is sweater than ever. You did a great job with this little beast, thank you so, much! (If you plan to use this on android you must choose the te7022 chip)

Update to my 5* review : This now also works on my new MotoG (Android 4.4.4) WITHOUT any software, but I do have to connect through a tiny (unpowered) USB hub. Plays 24/96 FLACs perfectly :)
