If you see products marked as “⚙️ DAC Chip”, expect to experience your music with unparalleled clarity, detail, and fidelity, ensuring that every note and nuance is faithfully reproduced for your listening pleasure.

Sampling Rate And Bit Depth

Ever wonder how those ones and zeros on your computer magically transform into the rich melodies that fill your room?


The secret lies in a tiny device called a Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC). Think of it as a translator, taking the digital code of your music and meticulously sculpting it back into a smooth, analog wave that your speakers can understand. But just like a sculptor needs the right tools, achieving audio nirvana with a DAC depends on two key factors: sampling rate and bit depth.


Sampling Rate:

Imagine your favourite song as a complex rollercoaster track. The sampling rate refers to how often the DAC takes measurements of this digital track, measured in kHz (kilohertz) or thousands of times per second. A higher sampling rate, like 96 kHz, is like taking a ton of pictures of the track, capturing every twist and turn with incredible detail. Lower rates, like the standard 44.1 kHz used in CDs, are like taking snapshots at a theme park – fun, but you might miss some of the subtler details that make the ride truly exhilarating.


Bit Depth:

Now, think about the sculptor's tools. Bit depth refers to the precision of each measurement the DAC takes. Imagine the number of colours available to the sculptor. With higher bit depth (e.g., 24 bits compared to 16 bits), each measurement can capture a wider range of values. This allows the DAC to recreate subtler variations in the sound wave, resulting in richer and more nuanced audio. It's like having a broader colour palette for building a more detailed and lifelike sculpture of the sound.


Topping has exceeded expectations with the E30 II, delivering a product that surpasses its price range in terms of performance. The sonic performance and technical features of the E30 II are truly remarkable, making it highly recommended for anyone seeking exceptional audio quality.

TOPPING PRESENTS THE ALL-NEW HI-RES CERTIFIED E30 II DAC, SUCCESSOR TO THE POPULAR E30

TOPPING has been the pioneer in producing some of the cleanest and distortion-free DACs. The TOPPING E30 was well-received across the globe and was the pick for the audiophile community. It was clean and precise with spectacular digital to analogue conversion capabilities. TOPPING is proudly introducing the E30 II successor to the E30. TOPPING designed the E30 II to be superior to the E30 in all aspects. It has dual AKM4493S chips, in contrast to the single AKM4493 chipset on the E30 and is also Hi-Res certified. The TOPPING E30 II is more stable and has better compatibility with its digital processing. The signal-to-noise and distortion ratio (SINAD) of 119dB is also increased by 4dB as opposed to 115dB on the E30. The signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 123dB is also increased by 3dB as opposed to 120dB on the E30. The TOPPING E30 II has superior noise suppression capability and better stability.

FEATURES AKM DAC CHIPSET THAT PROVIDES CLEAN AND JITTER-FREE DIGITAL TO ANALOGUE CONVERSION AND SUPPORTS PREAMP FUNCTIONALITIES

The E30 II uses two sub-flagship AK4493S chips of AKM's VELVET Sound technology. The AK4493SEQ is a stereo premium 32-bit DAC with VELVETSOUND™ technology, achieving industry-leading low distortion characteristics and wide dynamic range. The AK4493SEQ integrates a switched capacitor filter "OSR Doubler", making it capable of supporting wide range signals and achieving low out-of-band noise while realising low power consumption. Moreover, the AK4493SEQ has six types of 32-bit digital filters, realising simple and flexible sound tuning in various applications. TOPPING has designed the E30 II with two AK4493S; in parallel to achieve better performance and noise reduction ability than a single chip. The TOPPING E30 II supports PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) 44.1kHz-768kHz/16bit-32bit and native DSD64-DSD512 (Direct Stream Digital) and DoP (DSD over PCM) with USB input. With COAX/OPT input it supports 44.1kHz-192kHz/16bit-24bit. The TOPPING E30 II also can fix to maximum output level to work as a pure DAC. This design enables the DSD signal to; bypass the DATT Soft Mute and AE Modulator to provide pure/direct DSD performance. The E30 II has a built-in volume control function that can adjust the volume from -99dB to OdB by using the remote control, so you can directly connect E30 II to a power amplifier or active speakers and control the volume of E30 II through the remote control.

COMPATIBLE WITH A 5V POWER SUPPLY THAT DELIVERS ULTRA-LOW NOISE FUSED WITH DISCRETE LNRD AND DAC FILTER FUNCTION

The TOPPING E30 II uses a DC5V; for power supply, which can be easily accessible almost everywhere. You can power it up by the USB port of a PC, mobile phone charger or even a power bank. The built-in protection circuit will protect the E30 II and prompt on the screen after connecting to the wrong power supply. Many electronic devices generate interference that makes the device generate noise and interfere with signals that cause distortion. The engineers at TOPPING have designed the E30 II with a Discrete LNRD circuit (low noise reference driver) to address noise interference issues. The Discrete LNRD circuit filters out the noise of various 5V power inputs and provides a stable power supply of ultra-low noise reference level for E30 II. With this technology, the noise floor of E30 II is lower than 1.5uV. For you to personalise how your music should sound, E30 II provides various filter modes. It has six filter modes under PCM decoding and two under DSD decoding that modifies; the details slightly and bring your music to life.

NOTE: The DAC filter function is not the same as the EQ function.

"The E30 II is a capable little DAC, with a bold orange display you will likely love or hate, featuring preamp functionality and a basic remote. The remote is a blessing for set up, Budget price point."

"The E30 II only needs to be turned On or Off so for me, it works best as a pure DAC rather than a preamp. It’s basically a set-and-forget unit that’s always on standby when you need it."

Excellent Value

This device sounds good and is stable. Its kind of plug and play but its recommended to install the drivers. The display stays on at any brightness setting unlike the D10. It does not output audio through the digital jacks but it can take in digital signals through them. You can use this dac as preamp for a receiver that doesnt have volume control. This dac sounds good and looks good, highly recommended for an audiophile starter, thank you HEADPHONE ZONE .

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!

Quality DAC

Using it with Burson Soloist SL mk ii.

Sound is transparent, dynamic. Good resolution. Setup is not very picky with hps used. They all sound good.

Definitely has exceeded my expectations. Would recommend this if you already have a good amp. I have been using Chord Mojo in my system for sometime, I will use E30ii in its place. Its much less headphone dependent, and I think sounds better with hps I have.

Thank you for your positive review! We're glad to hear that the TOPPING E30 II has exceeded your expectations and that it pairs well with your Burson Soloist SL mk ii. We appreciate your recommendation and hope you continue to enjoy the sound quality it provides. Happy listening!

- missing optical out

We really appreciate the genuine feedback, we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well!

Excellent Value Proposition

Have had this DAC running now for more than 10 months. For the price this is a true value for money considering the various connectivity options that it provides. Have this connected via the USB and the sound quality is very smooth and very detailed.

Though this can be used as a Pre-Amp - I have been using this as a pure DAC within my music chain. Highly recommended as part of a budget system especially for someone getting started in the world of hi-fi.

Hey JOSEPH, thank you so much for the amazing feedback! It means a lot to us. We are so happy to hear that you are loving our products and services.
