USB,Optical & Coaxial
Topping E30 is an entry-level overachiever in every possible way. E30 is small but once you connect it to a decent speaker system or a headphone amp, it starts blooming and showing all its tricks. It presents an accurate tonal balance and infuses just a bit more joy between all musical notes.
TINY IN SIZE, BIG ON PERFORMANCE
Experience high-performance sound quality from the Topping Audio E30. This tiny DAC boasts an AKM AK4493 DAC chip that offers hi-res sound up to DSD512 and PCM 32-bit/768kHz. It comes with 6 filter modes under PCM decoding and an additional two filters under DSD decoding to adjust the details to your preference. It is Hi-Res certified by the Japan Audio Society.
MULTIPLE INPUTS FOR OPTIMAL RESOLUTION & CONNECTIVITY
The E30 supports all the commonly used inputs so that you can connect it to just about any device of your choice (including your mobile phone). E30 includes USB, optical and coaxial. The 2nd gen XMOS XU208 USB supports high-resolution signals, while the AK411 S/PDIF receiver ensures the lowest amount of jitters and is compatible with the optical and coaxial connections. Use the customised Thesycon drivers to get optimum performance with your PC (Window 7 & above).
5V POWER SUPPLY THAT MAKES IT PERFECT FOR ON-THE-GO USAGE
The 5V power supply lets you use the E30 anytime and anywhere. You can power it using your mobile phone charger, the USB slot in your computer as well as a portable charger. With the portable charger, you can use your E30 as a portable DAC. The auto on/off function can further save power. If the DAC fails to detect an input signal for a minute, it will go into standby mode. As soon as it detects an audio signal, it will automatically switch on.
PRE-AMP OR DAC? PICK WHICHEVER YOU NEED
Need a pre-amp or standalone DAC? The E30 does both. The nifty little remote lets you adjust the volume from -99dB to 0dB when you directly connect the E30 to any active speaker or power amp. In Pure DAC mode, the DSD signal can bypass the Delta Sigma Modulator and DATT Soft Mute to offer a pure, DSD performance.

HPZ has been doing a great service to the Indian audiophile community by bringing great products to our shores. The Topping E30 maintains that tradition. There are tons of rave reviews of this wonderful product on the Internet; there's not much I can add to that - I just want to request HPZ to keep bringing the full range of Topping products to India. And also look at other brands like SMSL, Burson, Vista Audio, JDS Labs etc.
We are so happy you took out time & elaborately reviewed the product. We are sure this will help our customers to make an even better & informed decision.
When I saw the chips used in E30, I was very excited to get the experience of Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation’s AK4118A paired with AK4493EQ, as I use TOSLINK for one of my Digital Source. When I played a known song, the sound was not so impressive. I took the E30 and connected through USB and TOSLINK both from my PC, with TPA6120a2 headphone amp paired with Beyerdynamic DT 880 headphones. The USB sounded better for same song compared to TOSLINK with same sample rate. Compared to USB, TOSLINK sounded like mud cake (sorry for such comparison). I was upset and had no clue for degraded TOSLINK performance. After few moments I was determined to see what is really inside the box. I opened the back plate and.. Alas!! Where is the promised AK4118A??!! There is a cheap CS8416 sitting as SPDIF/TOSLINK receiver, which is an old school chip and notorious for its high jitter rate (200ps max). I was shocked that there are big headlines with image as AK4118A is used inside, but inside it is a different story. And it’s definitely not an upgrade, as I know about CS8416 based on my previous experience. Now whom to blame? The Topping? Headphone zone? Or my bad luck? Over USB the sound is ok, but not impressive. I used all filters to get better sound, but always the sound is bit blunt. This is only product I bought where the internal architecture does not match with the claim made by product manufacturer.
The good: Price, detailed and clean output, USB out, build quality sans remote, display presentation in orange digital
Not so good: power adapter not part of the kit, flimsy remote, no volume controls on the unit, if something goes wrong with the unit it will become useless, range and accuracy of remote is very poor - won't work if not directed properly or when triggered from a distance, only one output.
I've been using this for a week now and I gotta say, this is an amazing little DAC especially for the price. I was tracking it for a few months and also considered importing it but HPZ managed to stock this wonderful product right in time. So kudos! I have paired this with my JDS Atom Amp and Bayer Amiron's and I must say I'm really impressed with the resulting sound output. The clarity and soundstage is really good and as advertised and reviewed by other audiophiles on YT, DSD512 Direct works flawlessly. I've not really messed about with the filters much so I cant really comment on those although I feel 3 & 4 sounded cleaner to my ears. Compared to the other two DACs I own (Fiio Q5 & Zorloo Ztella) this definitely serves its purpose as my desktop DAC of choice. Although, I still prefer the sound profile provided by the ESS Sabre 9281CPRO chip to the ones provided by AKM, but thats just me. Highly recommend this DAC to anyone looking for the best price=performance imo. Check out the reviews on YT and other sources (Audiosciencereview) on this product & see why this is the talk of the town.
Thank you for the great review & for sharing your setup details. WE hope it was a comfortable shopping experience. Cheers!
I am a second time user of external DAC, previously I had been using onboard audio and Creative Play3! usb DAC. After reading a lot of good reviews and watching good amount of product comparison videos on youtube, I finally decided to go for Topping E30. Then, I searched online and found out that, this product was only available at Headphone Zone. But, I had never heard of them before, so, I googled about them and shockingly enough, I found some negative incidents reported by some former customers on Quora and Reddit. Which were enough to scare away any future potential customer of HPZ. Needless to mention that I was a first time customer of HPZ and to be honest with my review, I was dead scared to invest my hard earned money on products from them. At the same time the urge to get Topping E30 was too strong to resist. Finally, I decided to place the order against all my common sense. And WHOA! I was wrong in my impression about them. They shipped my product before the normal time frame mentioned on their site. All the credits goes to Mr. Raghav & his silent, efficient and hardworking HPZ team. I got my E 30 delivered within 4 days of placing the order in perfect packaging and condition. As of the performance of Topping E30 - many experienced people have already reviewed it and praised it's performance and I am incompetent enough to add anything to it. All I can say about it's sound quality is just phenomenal. I have paired it with my Edifier R1280T speaker ( I don't listen on headphone ) and I was speechless with it's performance. All of my old favourite music tracks which I have listened over hundred of times now present themselves with new form, which I have never heard before. Channel separation and stereo imaging is superb, even with my humble set up. Thank you HPZ for bringing this little marvel to my life.
Hey Rajarshi, we're overwhelmed to hear all the amazing words from you. It really means a lot. Thank you so much for sharing this positive feedback with us.

So I thought I’ll get the e30 connect iPhone over usb camera adapter and viola get bit perfect hires audio better than cd quality sound. I am thrilled to say I am indeed getting bit perfect sound from Apple Music and actually playing hi res lossless. It’s pure magic! But be informed it’s not cd quality 🤣 I mean I have to turn up the volume a lot to volume match the CD player and even then it’s not CD quality . Getting CD uality was wrong expectation on my part . But otherwise detail separation , soundstage pretty awesome. You can do critical listening but only CDs will make your heart sing. Sigh…
It took decade for me to upgrade my system. Indeed m happy with this dac . Must. Hve for any audiophile
So glad to know that you love them:) We look forward to serving you again. Happy listening!
