The E70 Velvet has the certification of Hi-Res Audio Wireless & LDAC and supports Bluetooth codecs like LDAC (24bit96kHz), aptX Adaptive, aptX HD, aptX LL, aptX, AAC, and SBC. To get even better sound quality from Bluetooth, TOPPING engineers abandoned the built-in DAC of QCC5125 while connecting its digital signal to AK4499EX to decode. For you to use the E70 Velvet in wired mode, "TOPPING" has incorporated the newest XMOS XU316 chipset. The USB hardware based on the newest XMOS XU316 and Thesycon custom driver (applicable to Windows, other systems are plug-and-play) makes the E70 Velvet stable and reliable.

TOPPING E70 Velvet has a balanced XLR output and single-ended RCA output. You can choose "XLR only", "RCA only", or "XLR+RCA" output for different applications. Additionally, TOPPING has added the Auto On/Off functionality to the E70 Velvet, which will turn ON and set to the input where the signal is valid automatically.

When XLR 4V and RCA 2V are selected, more devices can be adapted when XLR 5V and RCA 2.5V are enabled; the performance improves by leaps and bounds with these functionalities. To get you started TOPPING has also designed their versatile headphone amplifier, the L70, to be a perfect match for the E70 Velvet. The TOPPING L70 is suitable for almost all kinds of headphones. The TOPPING "E70 Velvet" and "L70" can be switched ON and OFF through the 12V Trigger interface. Also, the L70 can be synchronised with the automatic or manual ON/OFF of the E70 Velvet.

Great DAC to start Hi-fi journey

Added the dac between macbook and active nearfield speakers. Very revealing. Definitely a large improvement over mac's inbuilt dac. Well rounded bass, warmth in the highs. Excellent staging and decent instrument separation and imaging. I had initially got the Topping Dx3+. It wasn't a bad dac but found it a little light on bass and tinny sound. So returned it and got the Velvet. Very happy with the purchase.

Hey there, thank you for the great review and ratings! So delighted that you are loving your purchase. Hope you had a comfortable shopping experience. Cheers!
