A powerhouse of a headphone amplifier combined with a high-performance DAC, the Deckard drives any headphone with power to spare. The DAC has impressive specs and handles 16 to 32-bits and sampling rates from 44.1kHz to 384kHz. There’s a volume control and front-panel switches to choose gain and input so you can also use the Deckard as a great line-level preamp. The sound is exciting and dynamic with beautifully rendered tonal colours that make music come alive.* Class A headphone amp and USB DAC.
* DAC processes 16/32 bits and up to 384kHz (limited to 192kHz on Windows devices due to operating system limitations). It does not do DSD.
* Can be used as a line level preamp.
* Industrial design by BMW DesignWorks USA (same as the new EL-8 headphone)
* Output power: 795mW at 33ohms / 465mW at 300ohms / 235mW at 600ohms
