Expert Verdict "Considering the price point that Topping went with unit, proud to announce that A90 receives my highest recommendation as being the one of the most complete sounding amplifier at a very attractive price!"
Sound News
"At just $500 I consider it a really nice unit that can compete with much pricier designs and I have no complaints in terms of its sonic performance."
Sound News
"The Aune Audio S7 PRO impressed me dearly with every musical genre I thrown at it. It was impressive with sensitive IEMs and harder to drive headphones alike."
Head-Fi
The xDSD is a very modern design and well-built portable amp/DAC and a confident freshman release for their new X-Series range.The xDSD has created a new path for iFi and an important one at that.

Clear as Glass

A90/E30 stack with either the Ath R70x or Sundara (both balanced) is perhaps the ultimate midfi. I let ROON play and choose Jazz from Tidal while I work on my desk and it is awesome!!
I got the A90 to replace the Schiit Jot and I can say it is definitely an upgrade when it comes to clarity and neutrality. A90 is clear as glass. But there is something about the Schiit Jot that makes me want to keep it along side the A90. I don't have audiophile vocabularies to describe the A90. However, I can confirm that the expert reviews are true and I do understand why they all claim that A90 is the best amp out there in the sub-1000 dollar category.
With A90/E30 the pianist, the drummer, the guitarist, the fiddler are all in the same room with me as I do my work.
Some people complain about noise when connecting from the RCA. Thankfully I have not faced such issues. The background is a total and absolute blank.

So glad to know that you love them:) We look forward to serving you again.

Value for Money:
Good Dac Amp combination - Topping D70s - A90 for Tidal Masters

I have used Focal clear Mg with these DAC/AMPs. My observations and usage may not be that of a sound engineer or that of an audiophile, but will benefit a normal listener looking for sound quality who is willing to spend that extra bit. This can is definitely a neutral one which tends to lean over a warm tonality. What I liked the most (a feature that stands out ) is its bass that sounds so natural as if the drummer is right in front of you and the mixer did not add his extra bit while recording. You can even distinguish the second drummer. Bass has reasonable extension to the sub level, and does not bleed into the mids. Mids are good and Diana Kralls and Natalie Merchant will sound so good that one can hear their whispers. Coming back to bass, it is fast and has good slam. Listen to Batshit by Sofi Tukker, Billie Jean by M.Jackson or Mellow my man by Roots in MQA to feel the bass of this can. Treble timbre is questionable and has something lacking in a specific range of frequency. Guitars of the blues are forward and close to the ear. However there is no distortion or sibilance and is smooth.
Sound stage is wide (180 deg and forward) and I felt it has more depth than width. Imaging is excellent where you can pin point the instrument . Instrument layering, separation and details are excellent. Listen to AR Rahman - Khwaja mere Khwaja in tidal masters to experience it. Focal provides you good 1/8” tangle free SE cables with ¼” adaptor and also with a 4 pin balanced cable. It comes with a nice hard case with pockets to store the cables.
The D70s sound is neutral and warm and A90 is transparent . A90 is quiet powerful with three distinct gain switches (L/M/H). Treble becomes much smoother at low gain, but at H adds colour to the timbre. It drives focal clear mg (55 ohms impedance) at 9 O clock at M Gain and at one O clock with L gain for a 24 bit/96-192 khz songs using balanced input and output cables. Balanced 3 pin topping TCX 1 cable is a good accessory (Unfortunately topping does not supply this with DAC or Amp ) to consider though pricy. Dac as well as amp can also be used as a pre-amp should you drive an external speaker . A90 can drive 7.6 W @ 16 Ohms and 1 W @ 300 Ohms per side. .

Pros : 1. D 70S Clear, smooth with no distortion 2. Variety of Input – output options 3. A90-Amp Power.

Value for Money:
Can't go wrong with this amp: very good sounding, enough power to drive just about any headphone.

I was looking for an amp that would be a step up from my Schiit Jotunheim, one that sounds better out of the SE output and has more power. My heart was saying Violectric V2xx but considering that it wasn't readily available and the A90 had mostly glowing reviews online, I figured i would give this a try not knowing how it's going to end up sounding like. It's smaller and weighs less than my Jot and the built quality is good. Paired with my Schiit Gungnir Multibit and Audeze Lcd-X this immediately sounded more clear/resolving, dynamic and neutral with improved imaging compared to the Jotunheim. However, this neutral and analytical presentation did take some getting used to and i have to admit that technicalities aside the Jot is the more fun/engaging Amp. The only nitpick i have is that it's perhaps not as smooth sounding especially in the treble as i would like. So, in summary it's a fantastic amp - certainly for the money! Topping a Chinese brand that plays in the low to mid-range segment has got a winner in the A90. However, the one year warranty isn't enough to inspire confidence in the reliability/longetivity of the amp. Topping has much cheaper models with limited features that have the same design/topology and should sound about the same. Another amp worth considering at this price point is the Singxer SA-1 (for Sennheiser HD800s this may be a better match). At double the price Violectric V280 would be my pick.

HI Girish,
Delighted you are loving your amplifier, we hope you had a comfortable shopping. Cheers & Keep the music playing!

I am using a90 +d90 stack with Beyerdynamic T1. Absolutely stunning transparency and clarity. I was using chord mojo but I felt it did not deliver enough power to my T1s.

So glad to know that you love them. We really appreciate your review, we hope it will help other potential customers to make an informed decision.
