With many portable devices, the internal headphone amplifier section is often designed for low power consumption, to extend battery life. If this goes well with normal earphones, with premium audiophile headphones, sonic performance suffers.
DA-10 is equipped with an advanced analog output stage that is capable of handling the widest range of headphone types, including audiophile and high quality models, often with high impedance rating, which requires more power from the stadium of exit.
A side gain switch allows you to adjust the output stage gain to precisely match the needs of your favorite premium earphones, including high impedance models. The final analogue audio phase is equipped with a discrete current buffer circuit for the best listening experience. There is also the option for fixed output, for connection to an external audio system.
