"The FiiO KA13 is otherwise a very good source for the money, although I mostly recommend it for people who like the aesthetics and find themselves in need of the extra power that's best used with a desktop PC or laptop."

"The KA13 is a benchmark for the sheer amount of power it brings to the table, and in such a compact form! I am pleased to have finally found a portable source that does justice to demanding gear like the Final E5000, Sennheiser HD650, and the notorious Yinman 600 ohm."

This puts most desktop DAC/AMPS to shame!

I don't want to go into other details like build quality and all. It all perfect and made out of metal. Let's focus on the sound here.

In my audio setup, the venerable Audio-gd NFB11(a desktop dac/amp) stands as the benchmark, seamlessly driving my Sennheiser HD650 with its warm, mid-focused charm. Enter the FiiO K13 – a revelation in the world of DAC/amps. Contrary to the NFB11's richness, the KA13 boasts a remarkably neutral and balanced profile. Astonishingly, this tiny dongle renders details previously unnoticed, breathing new life into my music.

Partnered with the HD650, the KA13's synergy is undeniable. Its prowess in extracting nuanced details from songs is truly impressive, amplifying the listening experience. Surprisingly, the KA13, priced significantly lower than the NFB11( >300$), effortlessly delivers ample power to the HD650 at a mere 50% volume. Btw, I only used the 3.5mm port which has 170mW output. (4.4mm has 550mW output!)

The marvel lies in the technological strides compact devices like the KA13 have made. It not only competes but excels, offering power and resolution that belies its size. The soundstage felt slightly narrower compared to the NFB11 but I only tested it for 3-4 songs. It really hard to believe that a thing that is literally the size of a thumb drive has outperformed by desktop dac I bought 5 years ago.

As I delve into further testing, particularly with IEMs, I anticipate a continuation of the KA13's impressive performance. Stay tuned for updates.

Overall, this little beast is a bang for your buck. Can't believe its priced so low. Grab it before it sells out!

Thank you for your review! We're thrilled to hear that the FiiO KA13 has exceeded your expectations and outperformed your previous desktop DAC. We strive to provide top-notch sound quality at an affordable price, and we're glad to see that we've achieved that with the KA13. Happy listening!

Fantastic Little Beast Unveiling Detail

First of all, a big thanks to Raghav and his team specially Adrian for being patient and addressing all my queries and getting my product delivered on time despite some delay in dispatching.

Now to Fiio - KA13. This is my first DAC. I had tried multiple DAC's in HPZ's Connect event which convinced me to finally go for a DAC. However, I was uncertain between the KA3, KA13 and Q11. I chose this device because it was the latest, powerful and would likely survive longer compared to the other options. (Q11 would die once the battery is out and at present there is no provision for a new battery.)

This device is a beast. It has bought new life to some of my existing gear which incl. Moondrop Chu-2, Focal Sphear, Tin HIFI T4 and Audio Technica M-20x. I can hear details which I would be missing out earlier. it's like a portal has been opened. I can hear sounds within sounds. Small gasps in live songs. The sound signature appears to be neutral with slight emphasis on the sub-bass and treble. Instrument Separation and Soundstage is considerably good enough. Where it wins you is the power - Dual Cirrus Chip. This just makes the volume go quite loud and would work even for some power hungry headphones. IEM's all in all don't require much power unless something very high end. But, it does help the IEM to unveil new sounds. You really do begin to hear sounds within sounds and they just all in all sound intimate and involving. Other things that make it truly a value for money device is the light to indicate quality (BGY), finish of the product, included cables, desktop mode (which you'll barely use) and fiio control app (which also you'll barely use). Also I tried it with iPhone, it works well, the lights do change based on quality. This device will clearly never want you to go back to your old mode of listening. (The colour change somehow only appears to be working with Apple Music - enabled losseless.)

As they say in the coffee world, the grinder is more important than the coffee machine. And so we always buy the grinder first and then the machine. The same way I can say, that the DAC is more important the IEM's/ Headphones. First buy the DAC then the IEM's/Headphones.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Solid Dac.

Using it with QKZ X HBB IEM and Custom Eq Wavelet & Glycox, this one sounds pretty powerful.The sub bass extension is really good with tight punchy Bass.V shaped sound slightly lacking mids. yet to use with 4.4mm jack. works decently with desktop also.

Thank you for your review! We're glad to hear that you're enjoying your FiiO KA13 with your QKZ X HBB IEM. We hope you'll continue to enjoy the powerful sound and sub bass extension. Happy listening!

Fiio KA13 DAC & Amp Combo : The best DAC under ₹10k. Period

The Fiio KA13 DAC & Amp Combo is a remarkable audio companion that truly stands out in its class. The incorporation of dual DAC chips elevates the audio experience to new heights, delivering a level of clarity and precision that audiophiles crave. The synergy of these dual DACs ensures a nuanced and detailed sound reproduction, capturing the subtleties of each note with finesse.

One of the standout features is its powerful output, allowing users to revel in a robust and dynamic sound signature. Whether you're delving into intricate instrumental arrangements or immersing yourself in the depth of vocal performances, the KA13 ensures a powerful and engaging audio output that remains distortion-free even at higher volumes.

Versatility is another key strength of the KA13. With the ability to accommodate both 3.5mm single-ended and 4.4mm balanced output cables, this DAC & Amp Combo caters to a wide range of audio setups. This flexibility empowers users to tailor their listening experience according to their preferences, making it an ideal choice for those who appreciate customization and fine-tuning.

The 4.4mm balanced output, in particular, adds a layer of sophistication to the audio delivery, creating a well-balanced and immersive soundstage. The separation of instruments and vocals is truly exceptional, allowing listeners to discern every element within the musical landscape. The spatial depth and imaging achieved by the KA13 contribute to an audio experience that transcends conventional expectations.

I've been using the same on my gaming PC paired with Truthear Hexa and Tripowin Zonie 4.4mm cables and I can really say there's a bigg difference in sound quality as compared to directly using the IEMs without a DAC. And yeah, don't take the "Desktop Mode" likely. Its a total different level of power

In conclusion, the Fiio KA13 DAC & Amp Combo is a testament to Fiio's commitment to delivering premium audio solutions. Its dual DAC chips, powerful output, and the flexibility to accommodate various cables make it a standout choice for discerning audiophiles. The captivating soundstage further solidifies its position as a top-tier DAC & Amp Combo, offering an immersive and enjoyable listening experience that showcases the intricacies of your favorite music in unparalleled detail.
