Audeze has produced excellent headphones with their outstanding performance and durable build. It was about time that Audeze introduced its very own headphone amplifier and with the Audeze Deckard, it brings to us a A-class amplifier to compliment most headphones. The Audeze Deckard is a powerhouse that combines a headphone amplifier with a high-performance DAC that can drive any headphone with power to spare. The sound that you get is exciting and dynamic along with beautifully rendered tonal colours that will make your music come alive. The soundstage is spacious, while, the bass is full, well defined and deep, it produces treble that is refined and pure. 

With astounding specification, the Deckard's DAC can handle 16 to 32-bits and sampling rates from 44.1kHz to 384kHz.The Deckard is definitely a great choice if you are looking to drive the best of your headphones.

"If you’re on a budget and you’re looking for an all-in one amplifer/DAC, or even standalone amplifier that can power a wide variety of headphones (planar and dynamic) and IEMs, the Deckard would certainly be toward the top of my list!"

  • DECKARD Class-A AMP/DAC Headphone Amplifier


    If music is an important part of your life you deserve to hear the real thing. The Deckard is a powerhouse of a headphone amplifier combined with a high-performance DAC. There’s a front panel volume control and switches to choose gain and input so you can use the Deckard as a great line-level preamp to drive your whole desktop system. The sound is exciting and dynamic with beautifully rendered tonal colors that make music come alive. 

    Impressive DAC

    The internal DAC has impressive specifications that plays 16 to 32-bit audio and sampling rates from 44.1kHz to 384kHz on Mac OS 10.6.4 and above. Windows computers are system limited to 192kHz and 24-bits. The front-panel gain switch chooses between three gain settings and we recommend starting at the uppermost position labeled Mid with Audeze headphones; other brands may require changing the gain.

God of DAC/AMPs

Class A amp, DAC.

What to say, this thing is like God of of DAC/AMPs. Of all I tried, if this is on the sky, all others I've tried are in Mariana Trench , these are that good.
I mean audiophiles should worship this thing.
Now moving on to jargons.
The most transparent, revealing, detailed, extended and natural/neutral DAC I ever heard.
I was comparing Audeze EL-8C to Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro, and I could only choose EL-8C (in some aspects) over DT 1990 after I listened to them on the Deckard. And the Deckard made me love 1990 even more.

Three words to describe it: Transparent, Revealing, Extended.

Deckard had the deepest bass, highest highs, most precise and natural presentation. Being so transparent, they had no problems in having an amazing speed, this is Bugatti and everything else is like a domestic car, except Mojo. It can go up to speed when required, though only when required and you can't control it. Whereas the Deckard will always be on top speed.
Only downside being no DSD support.
I don't understand why this is not selling more than the Mojo or FiiO.
This thing is f***ing great. This thing is becoming religious for me, it's so freaking awesome.
Just to put it in words: Deckard is so transparent and revealing it's like it's telling you "Dude, this is what you have, listen to it! I won't touch, I won't do a damn thing to it, I'll do my job as fast as possible. If it sounds bad, coz it is bad, the sound engineer f*** it up, not me!, Ohh you like it? It must be good, sound engineer must've done a fantastic job, I didn't to anfu****g thing to make it sound any better"
