This is our Tiny DAC with Type-C USB connector. It uses a PCM2706 USB receiver chip and the ESS Sabre ES9023 dac chip. It is cheaper and simpler than the UAE23HD Sabre 9018k2m type C dac.
The USB receiver is an older generation PCM2706 that makes this DAC compatibile with more devices, however one drawback is that volume control hotkeys on Mac/PC is not supported. Volume keys up/down generally work in Android.
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
Note: Normally amplifier inputs are from 10K to 100K ohm. Normal headphones are from 32 ohm to 300ohm.
