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 is able to bypass the Delta Sigma Modulator and DATT Soft Mute to offer a pure, DSD performance.

HPZ brings another winner to India

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.

E30 Bang for the buck and performance to match or even exceed!

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.

Little marvel in its price range. Good service by Headphone Zone.

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. Its always a pleasure to give our customers their favourite products and we put a lot of collective efforts to make sure our customers get the best shopping experience with us. We hope to see you again soon. Happy listening! :)

Good buy for the price

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.

Amazing little DAC for the desk

I got this today and they sound fantastic straight out of the box. All the expert reviews of this little DAC is correct. I really don't have anything to add other than to nod in agreement to all the reviews I watched (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3W8wh_nObA) and read online. The hype is real. They do pair very well with the IFI XCAN. Thank you Headphonezone for bringing it to India.
I wish Topping made an MQA version of E30. Man that will be great !!

Best DAC in its price range

I was in the market for a dac/amp combo and it was between the E30/L30 stack and the Modi 3+/Heresy stack, primarily to drive my Sundara and use the pre-amp for my powered 2.1 speakers.

The E30 is simply the best DAC for its price range available in India. It is one of the cleanest and one of the most feature rich DACs on the market at its price point, along with support for 512 DSD and upto 768 kbit PCM playback. It's closest competitor in the price range - Modi 3+ pales in comparison and is simply not versatile enough.

I use this as a part of my dedicated desktop listening stack, so it is permanently set to DAC mode and not Pre-amp mode. However, if you are so inclined you can set it as a pre-amp and use the remote to control the volume. It also has a series of DAC filters which you can explore, but I have personally not felt the need to.

All in all, it's an incredible value for money which can easily be paired with even more powerful amps, upto the A90 for a great clean sound.

Hey Sourabh, we are so happy to hear that you are loving this product! Thanks for taking time and sharing this wonderful review. Happy listening! :)
