Pair with Laptop via USB

A majority of people use a laptop as the primary source device to listen to music or watch movies. Since the laptop is an essential part of the audio chain there are headphones and devices designed to work a laptop or computer system flawlessly. With the availability of USB connectivity, it becomes easier to pair various devices like an Amp, DAC or even headphones without worrying about drivers or any additional piece of software.


DAC Chip
You may not even realise it, but most of us use a digital-to-analogue converter (commonly known as a DAC) daily. Built into your computers, tablets and smartphones, a DAC is fundamental to unlocking the convenience of digital music. Any device that acts as a digital sound source will need a DAC to convert digital audio to analog. A DAC converts the digital information stored in “0s and 1s” into an analog signal that's passed to speakers or headphones and ultimately our ear. In short, DACs play a large part in making digital music hearable. 

While this technical process is undoubtedly impressive, the DAC embedded into your smartphones or laptops is nowhere good enough to listen to your favourite music recordings in high quality. So, if you want to listen to music in high quality, an external DAC is essential to allow headphones or speakers to perform at their potential. An external DAC, first and foremost, will improve audio quality dramatically.

USB, Optical & Coaxial

Volume Controls

DAC & Amps that have volume controls make its operation incredibly simple; turn up the volume on your smartphone or your source devices and then change the volume on DAC & Amps to the desired level.


This design feature allows you to have complete control over the desired volume according to your listening preferences.

Awesome Dac for the price

Bought this dac after a lot of research, was torn down between Fiio BTA30. Mustered up the courage and ordered it after checking a few YouTube reviews. The dac performs as expected. The only drawback is not all isb cables work with, the original MacBook cable is not working with it, hence need to make sure you use the provided cable with an adapter/extension if required or search for a compatible cable. Tried it with a MacBook, iPhone and iPad and it worked like a charm on all 3. Tried tracks up to 192khz and the dac auto switched on the iPhone and iPad, however Mac MIDI settings are capped at 44.1khz, so need to manually change that to avoid compression. Bluetooth on all 3 devices only support AAC, hence unable to test LDAC functionality. But it played well without stuttering even if I left the room and came back. All in all a very good Dac for the price.

Versatile DAC that can handle a variety of inputs + Bluetooth!

this DAC can:
1. take USB input from PC/Laptop
2. Work in bluetooh rx mode and pushes hi-res audio out
3. Also accepts optical in therefore also accepts input from TVs etc.

The only thing it cant do is turn into a bluetooth tx, other than that, works quite well and is super versatile for the price point. It also has no dedicated headphone out, you will need an RCA to 3.5mm female connector, but it can power my 250ohm DT990 pros with ease.

Hi there, we are so happy you took out time and elaborately reviewed the product. We are sure this will help our customers to make an even better and informed decision.
