The very popular and well-renowned audio company, Sony has now taken a leap into the Amp and DAC bandwagon. We cannot be happier.
The Sony PHA-3 may be pricey but is a mean little portable Amplifier & DAC created for High-End headphones and in conjuncture with the Sony Z7. Powered with high-end D/A conversion technology, this Sony headphone amplifier is compatible with most High-Resolution Audio formats (PCM 384 kHz/32bit and DSD). It produces sound that is pleasing, detailed and composed.
The PHA-3 is small and no bigger that a pack of playing cards. We love how it is light enough and can be easily hand-held. Evidently, the brand has specified some real good parts into this DAC. Extremely well-built, Sony has lent this piece a nice luxurious feel.
Featuring a digital connection for Walkman®, Xperia®, iPhone/iPad/iPod®, the PHA-3 has a L/R balanced output. With high quality components, the DAC+AMP is a powerful package for premium home audio. All this and more combine to create an immersive listening experience with a 3D soundstage.
The Sony PHA-3 is more that a fine performer. It only makes listening to music from all genres, a real pleasure. If you seek to up your music game, then the PHA-3 is the one for you.
