The Sony PHA-3 High Resolution USB DAC and Headphone Amplifier can help reveal details and layers in the high resolution audio files stored on your PC, smartphone, tablet or music player. The unit converts Hi-Res signals (PCM up to 384 kHz/32 bit and DSD) from your device's digital output for you to enjoy through headphones. The D/A conversion technology provides a spacious, three-dimensional soundstage with clear channel separation over the amplifier's balanced output.

The device supports PCM files up to 384 kHz/32-bit resolution on a computer, up to 48 kHz/24-bit resolution on an iPhone/iPad/iPod, up to 192 kHz/24-bit through an optical link, as well as 2.8 MHz and 5.6 MHz DSD files.
