Styled to stack perfectly with an Apple Mac mini, the combination will function as a small-footprint audio hub and provides a perfect way to listen to HD music at home. The unit features a line-level input for a portable music player, an S/PDIF input for digital sources, and a headphone amplifier that can drive virtually any headphones with near nonexistent distortion.
Audiophile-grade digital-to-analog converter outputs 24-bit/96kHz music with bit-perfect accuracy
The company's AdaptiWave High Resolution USB audio technology offers true 24-bit/96kHz audio quality, eliminating any re-sampling artifacts introduced by the operating system
The JitterGuard clock management system uses a military specified clock oscillator with 10 ppm precision and unmeasurable jitter
Exceptional noise immunity via a galvanically-isolated design
The low-distortion amplifier runs on super-clean 30V rails - higher voltage means more headroom and more output power to drive any headphones
