FEATURES DISCRETE 1-BIT DAC FOR AN EXHILARATING SONIC PERFORMANCE

Cayin, with their brand-new N7, has broken all barriers when it comes to the design of the Digital Audio Player's internal components. The Cayin N7 is a voyager of an unexplored frontier. It is the first-ever DAP to feature pure Discrete 1-Bit DAC architecture. A team of engineers at Cayin have incorporated a Discrete model even though it is technically more demanding, allowing more room to fine-tune the sound signature and deliver superior audio performance. The Cayin N7 consists of Discrete Resistor networks for DSD format. The Discrete 1-Bit DAC converts digital to analogue signal through a resistor network comprising 128 pcs (4x32) high-precision Thin Film resistors. The FPGA enhances digital audio and outputs digital bitstream for fully balanced decoding. The Discrete 1-Bit DAC can decode PCM 32Bit/768kHz (Pulse Code Modulation) and DSD64 to DSD512 (Direct Stream Digital). The Cayin N7 also employs TWO Femtosecond Crystal Oscillators with low phase noise (-100dBc) to facilitate high precision low jitter playback. Low jitter minimises digital artefact and enhances the musicality and naturalness of digital audio playback. Delve into pure sonic bliss with the voyager of the unexplored frontier - the N7!

DISCRETE AMPLIFICATION STAGE WITH DUAL AMPLIFICATION MODE

The Cayin N7 has 4-channels of discrete components based circuit with Low-noise audio grade JFET (Junction gate Field-Effect Transistor) as the differential input stage and BJT (Bipolar Junction Transistor) as voltage amplification and final output stage. This architecture delivers high-power low-noise output with optimization for low-impedance IEM and less power-demanding headphones. The Cayin N7 incorporates dual Amplifier operation allowing you to switch seamlessly between Class A and Class AB amplification modes through a pull-down menu. Class A offers Low distortion and optimum playback conditions with a silky smooth, warm and lush vocal presentation. Class A mode is best suited for sentimental music with loads of details and macro dynamics. It is very responsive to busier tracks like film scores and orchestral music. Class AB mode offers clear, tight, and punchier bass response and open presentation with high dynamic range. Level up your listening experience by entering into the ocean of sonic extravaganza!
