      Product details

      SMSL IQ Hifi Portable DAC & headphone amplifier

      The IQ features a small OLED display on the left side. For users with balanced IEMs, the IQ has a 2.5-millimeter balanced output in addition to the 3.5-millimeter unbalanced output.

      Inside the IQ is a SABRE9018Q2C chip that supports second generation XMOS transmission with an ultra-low phase noise, low jitter clock system powered by a high capacity battery and an ultra-low noise LDO for the best performance.

      A sound-mute unit protects the headphones from sound damage while minimizing the loss of audio signals.

      The amplifier comes with short microUSB and USB Type C cables, ideal for Android-based devices.

      Fantastic sound. Use it mainly as an interface between PC/smartphone/tablet and Hifi-amplifier (for internet radio) and occasionally as portable headphone amplifier. Instruction "Manual" hardly deserves it's name but if you're somewhat familiar with this kind of equipment this is not a big issue.
