DAC Chip
You may not even realise it, but most of us use a digital-to-analogue converter (commonly known as a DAC) daily. Built into your computers, tablets and smartphones, a DAC is fundamental to unlocking the convenience of digital music. Any device that acts as a digital sound source will need a DAC to convert digital audio to analog. A DAC converts the digital information stored in “0s and 1s” into an analog signal that's passed to speakers or headphones and ultimately our ear. In short, DACs play a large part in making digital music hearable. 

While this technical process is undoubtedly impressive, the DAC embedded into your smartphones or laptops is nowhere good enough to listen to your favourite music recordings in high quality. So, if you want to listen to music in high quality, an external DAC is essential to allow headphones or speakers to perform at their potential. An external DAC, first and foremost, will improve audio quality dramatically.
Pair with Laptop via USB

A majority of people use a laptop as the primary source device to listen to music or watch movies. Since the laptop is an essential part of the audio chain there are headphones and devices designed to work a laptop or computer system flawlessly. With the availability of USB connectivity, it becomes easier to pair various devices like an Amp, DAC or even headphones without worrying about drivers or any additional piece of software.

GROOVE ON TO YOUR MUSIC FOR UP TO 25 HOURS ON A SINGLE CHARGE

The G5 has a built-in 4000mAh battery so that it does not need to rely on the power supply of the mobile phone like other portable DAC & AMPs, so it will not reduce the battery life of the mobile phone or the device to which it is connected. Due to the optimisation, the G5 can get 25 hours of battery life at AUX input; even if it is in DAC mode, it can get 9 to 10 hours of battery life. The TOPPING G5's playtime varies depending on the source or inputs and different gain settings. It offers more than 9 hours in USB mode with the gain settings set to low or medium and more than 6.5 hours when the gain setting is high. In Bluetooth mode, G5 offers more than 10 hours of battery life with gain settings set to low or medium and more than 8 hours when the gain setting is high. TOPPING G5 offers a whopping 25 hours of battery life when operated in AUX mode with gain settings set to low or medium and more than 13 hours with gain settings high.

OFFERS 3 STEP GAIN SETTINGS MAKING IT IDEAL FOR ALL KINDS OF HEADPHONES AND IEMS

G5 provides 3-step gain settings so that high-sensitivity or low-sensitivity headphones can obtain a comfortable gain range. The output level as high as 21Vpp and the output power of 175mW under 300 ohms load is enough to drive high impedance headphones; The <0.3uVrms ultra-low noise and <0.192 output impedance allow sensitive IEMs to perform at their best. With these gain settings, you will have enough headroom to power the most demanding headphones. When the gain setting is low, it gives -15dB, -0.1dB on medium, and 12dB on high. G5 provides 2.8Vpp on low, 11Vpp on medium, and 21Vpp on high gain settings for output levels.
