Taking the ADI-2 Pro a notch higher, the ADI-2 DAC FS features an upgraded, high-end AD/DA converter with two outputs for headphones and IEMs each and an efficient remote control. The background noise and other forms of audio distortions are taken care of by the advanced analogue output stage. This all-around setup allows the ADI-2 DAC FS to function as a reference DAC and it has been acclaimed by critics for its sound, dynamics and technical features.

The upgraded ADI-2 DAC FS uses AKM's AK4493 chipset, supported by a specifically created circuit that helps the chip produce a great performance. Noise levels are kept to a minimum of 123 dBA, distortion to a minimum of -120 dB, and THD+N to a minimum of -116 dB. The IEM output has the lowest noise through a headphone output in the entire globe at -121 dBu. The ADI-2 DAC FS further improves things by providing 4 dB of digital headroom, enabling you to listen to music at high volumes without experiencing perceptible distortion. The volume control is now only used to provide an output of an undistorted analogue signal. This DAC has a low dispersion feature with a new configurable digital filter.


Modern highly sensitive IEMs often face issues like floor noise and other kinds of audio distortions. The ADI-2 DAC FS uses RME-powered IEM output which brings down the noise floor to an exceptional 10 dB. Even the output impedance is near zero ohms while the Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) reaches new record lows. With click-free on/off and volume ramp-up option, you can use this DAC with any IEM without losing on the sound quality.

It also highlights cuts in bits, the presence of audio dither or other undesirable changes that can hinder the performance.

Great product. Good shopping experience

The DAC sounds great in its first hours of playing, and will hopefully only get better. A noticeable improvement on the M-DAC Mini, particularly in the low frequencies and overall clarity. Delivery time was shorter than expected and than had been communicated to me - an additional pleasant surprise.

Hey Jeremy, thanks for the positive feedback. We are so happy to hear that you had a great shopping experience with us. We hope to serve you again soon! Happy listening! :)

Oh My God, What a DAC!!!!

DAC sounds wonderful. This is my 4th DAC and I think I made the right choice. I have been looking for a DAC in the price range of 50k to 1 lakh. This DAC is pricey for me, but I thought that I have already spent a good amount of money on other DACs and why not settle for this wonderful DAC. Probably the End game DAC!!! I don’t think so, probably for 3 to 4 years. It comes with a user manual that is close to 100 pages; I suppose. This is one crazy company that gives so much importance to the minute details.

HPZ informed the delivery date to me after I placed the order. I was told that it’s going to take a couple of more days than the usual delivery. But it’s worth waiting.

I was having this doubt about the DAC chip as this DAC was shipping with AKM, but later they started ESS. So I asked the gurus, and they told that they will confirm that as well. And they confirmed the DAC is using an ESS chip.

This is one of the best DAC I have listened to. Thank you very much, HPZ.

This makes us really happy and we really appreciate the genuine feedback! We're glad that you have such positive thoughts about our team and the company.
