Tube-Tech at its Finest

The Cayin N8 offers three kinds of amplification (4.4mm Bal, 3.5mm SE-SS, 3.5mm SE-Tube), letting you choose from a vacuum tube or solid-state output. This vacuum tube amplification circuit has been designed based on the KORG Nutube 6P1, a dual-channel Triode vacuum tube from Japan. A PGA2311UA chip has been used to suppress background noise and facilitate gain compensation with the Solid State circuit while a Spring-loaded Suspension System eliminates microphonic effect for better portability.

Decodes the Toughest Files

Experience only the best in sound. The N8 has a 32-bit AK4497EQ Dual DAC and PCB Board that can decode up to 32Bit/384kHz, DSD up to DSD256 and handle SACD-ISO seamlessly.

Amp it Up

Connect just about any headphone with your N8 thanks to the multiple choices of outputs. You can use between a 4.4mm balanced, 3.5mm single-ended, S/PDIF, USB Audio and I2S digital output.

Connect One, Connect All

Connect just about any headphone with your N8 thanks to the multiple choices of outputs. You can use between a 4.4mm balanced, 3.5mm single-ended, S/PDIF, USB Audio and I2S digital output.


Go Wireless Easily

The N8 uses the latest Bluetooth v4.2. This lets you stream music wirelessly via aptX or SBC. You can even turn this device into a wireless DAC by streaming audio from another player via SBC. The best part? You can control the N8 from your phone with the HiBy Music Player app.

Listen for Long

The N8 has a battery life that ranges from 7.5 hours to 9.5 hours depending on the power supply mode used as well as the output. The QC2.0 cable from Qualcomm and Pump Express from Media Tek quickly charges the 7000mAh battery. Smart LEDs inform you of the sampling rate, charging, etc.

Leave No Song Behind

Carry your favourite tracks everywhere. The Cayin N8 has a massive internal memory of 128GB which can be further expanded via a 512GB TF card. And, even if that’s not enough, plug-in your OTG as well!

Stylish Yet, Durable

The N8 does not only look great but also sounds great as well. A PVD coated, stainless steel chassis and 24K gold-plated solid brass control dials make this DAP super-durable to carry around. A Corning Gorilla 3 (AF and DLC coated) curved glass back panel fits perfectly while the 3.2-inch multi-touch IPS screen and physical buttons make usage easy.

Expert Verdict "Tube output has always been a dream of mine in a DAP and for some time I thought this might happen in the amp cards from FiiO or iBasso but it never materialized."
"The Astell&Kern SP2000 is very precise and detailed, it also delivers music with a fast pace. The Bass is tight, fast and detailed with good layering."
"The A01 motherboard taps into Cayin’s house sound or preference for something slightly richer, sweeter and an all-round performance that will appeal to a very wide audience indeed."
"The Astell & Kern A&ultima SP1000M is pretty much faultless when it comes to sound quality. When it comes to the business of playing music, it’s impossible to find holes in the performance."
