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.

Connect With USB, AES
Coaxial, Optical & I2S

Volume Controls

If your DAC & Amps include volume controls or volume rockers, you can easily change the volume with a button press or volume knob turn.


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.


The Topping D90 LE is a highly capable DAC, benefiting from an intelligent and careful design for high performance. It features the latest DA/AD conversion chips, an XMOS interface and an Altera Max II CPLD to deliver a truly remarkable listening experience. When combined with the A90, the combo makes for one of the cleanest DAC & Amp stacks.

A FULLY BALANCED HI-FI DAC COMPILED WITH XMOS, ES9038PRO CHIPS, AND CUSTOMIZED THESYCON ASIO DRIVER

The D90LE features 2nd generation XMOS, USB compatibility for PCM 32bit768kHz and native DSD512, and USB support for up to PCM 32bit768kHz. Your PC will act as a HIFI source with the help of a modified Thesycon ASIO driver (for Windows 10 and above) (MAC does not need a driver to achieve ASIO). The ESS SABRE ES9038PRO, which has a 32-bit Hyper-stream architecture, is used in the D90LE to achieve ultra-high performance. The D90LE's channels are connected in parallel by four conventional balanced channels that improve the D90LE's performance even further. It offers a DAC+preamplifier mode in addition to the DAC mode with a fixed output level. This mode enables control of output volume on the front panel or via the remote control. Each channel is structured in parallel by four standard balanced channels for optimal fidelity and precision. The D90LE's performance has reached a new high, with full-range sound at your fingertips. 126dB@1kHz SINAD, 134dB@1kHz Dynamic range specifications were calculated using the A-weighted method.

NOSE-DIVE INTO THE ULTIMATE HI-RES EXPERIENCE WIRED AND WIRELESS

Topping D90LE supports native decoding up to DSD512 & PCM 768 kHz and 134 dB Dynamic range Hi-Res audio with a wired connection. Ditch the cables, not the quality, with Bluetooth 5.0 transmission wirelessly. Experience rich 24-bit support for lossless codecs. D9OLE has Hi-Res Audio Wireless certification, and it employs the CSR8675 chipset to handle LDAC/AAC/SBC/aptX LL/aptX HD protocols. To get even higher sound quality over Bluetooth, the CSR8675's built-in DAC is bypassed and decoded by the ES9038PRO.

IIS INPUT SUPPORTS UP TO NATIVE DSD512 DECODING

You can use an HDMI cable to transfer the IIS signal directly to the D90LE's ESS9038PRO for better decoding. The IIS input supports PCM 32bit768kHz and native DSD512. The IIS input offers phase settings, DSD channel, and DSD indication pin selection settings compatible with most digital interfaces on the market that output IIS signals through the HDMI interface. Instead of using regular HDMI signals, this capability uses only the HDMI interface to transfer IIS signals. As a result, it cannot connect to a PC, TV, or set-top box through HDMI.

WIDE RANGE OF COMPATIBILITY PLUG AND PLAY SELECTABLE OUTPUTS

D90LE is compatible with Windows 10 and higher, MAC, LINUX, iOS, and Android. You must install and configure the driver only for Windows ASIO apps. The D90LE features a balanced XLR output and a single-ended RCA output. For various applications, you can select "XLR Only," "RCA Only," or "XLR Plus RCA." Selectable XLR 4V/5V and RCA 2V/2.5V outputs: In addition to the more versatile XLR 4V and RCA 2V outputs, XLR 5V and RCA 2.5V outputs are in high demand, and D90LE expands the number of alternatives available to fulfill a range of requirements. More devices can be adapted when XLR 4V and RCA 2V are selected to deliver optimal performance.

EXCEPTIONAL SOUND SIMULATION AND DRIVING CAPABILITIES

The inclusion of the sound modeling capability of tubes and transistors in the D90LE allows a listener to hear three separate performances based on the unique harmonic performance of tubes and transistors. The channel balance can be adjusted in 0.5dB increments within a 10dB range. A90 Discrete is the ideal headphone amplifier for D90LE with a balanced discrete NFCA module, ultra-high-output capability, 0.000055 % ultra-low THD+N, 0.1 Ohm output impedance, wide gain adjustment, and high output voltage to get flawless audio playback with no jitter or distortion. The XMOS 16-core XU216 microcontroller translates high-quality digital data to the analog voltage without distortion. In addition, asynchronous USB audio transfer and a CPLD guarantee jitter of less than -160dB.

PRE-AMPLIFIER FUNCTION

D90LE has a DAC+preamplifier mode which helps you control the volume on the front panel or through remote control. This functionality avoids adding a pre-amplifier to the setup.

THINGS TO BE WEIGHED IN

Unlike traditional parallel connections followed by I/V conversion, the D90LE performs independent I/V conversion for the ES9038PRO's eight channels before connecting them in parallel, resulting in a "4*DAC parallel connection" in terms of sound effects and technology. A CPLD is employed to process the clock and considerably improve the digital signal, so Jitter is less than -160dB regardless of USB, optical coaxial, or AES input.

Fantastic product, made perfect by omitting MQA and lowering the price over the D90SE

Super glad to have been able to purchase this DAC. The D90SE was very desirable already, and the LE brings home all of that quality while helping you save a pretty packet by knocking off support for unnecessary MQA. This elegant DAC is a great fit for my pair of Neumann KH-80 DSP studio monitors. The combination delivers audio rivalling, or even exceeding, the clean, crisp output and imaging of a top-notch IEM or studio-quality headphone pair.

Headphone Zone's price for the DAC is mouth-watering considering the current dollar exchange rate. It's a no-brainer if you can additionally get input tax credit on a business purchase.

Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience and thank you for the great review and ratings!
