PRE-AMP OR DAC? PICK WHICHEVER YOU NEED

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.

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.

Topping E30

It is a pleasurable DAC to listen to. Not the ultimate in detail retrieval, but that makes it sound less grainy on bad recordings and one can listen to it for longer hours. It is warmer sounding, as the mid-range is more lush and forward sounding. Sound stage is impressively wide. Yeah! i like it.

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 !!

TOPPING - E30

Superb service by Headphone zone as always & super fast delivery, thank you brining this product to India for audiophiles like us appreciated :)
Please find my Initial impressions below on TOPPING E30.

SQ:-
Highs are more refined, Considerable details in mids & Low is more punchy than normal

Build / usability :-
Solid build with good finish, Display is clear & comes with 3 levels with dimmer option. Easy to use remote with all the function

Cons:-
Filters - The one feature which i was looking forward for is kind of disappointing, frankly speaking out of 6 filters, i could really identity only 3 filters which are slightly distinctive, remaining 3 filters are just numbers on it :( If someone feels it differently please let me know, would like to play those tracks & spot the difference.

Preamp:-
Thats boon in my case, finally i got remote to control my Norge Concerto Gold 1000 volume. So happy :p "Pharrell Williams - Happy"

Compared to my AmazonBasic DAC, Overall i would say considerable improvement in SQ - but not to the extend which will "Wow" you if your very serious/picky listener its a beginner DAC.

Cheers,
Binu AP

Best things come in small packages!

E30 is a very clean sounding dac. It is very neutral without any added flavour. Use a 5V power adapter for best sound. It is decent in what it accomplishes given the value proposition. Highly recommend.

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

Awesome for the price!!!

If u looking for budget DAC, that's it. I guess nothing can beat E30 at this price point.

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