Eleven Audio K R2R DAC


2 600,00 $


XIAUDIO uses a custom R2R ladder DAC developed exclusively for them by Soekris of Denmark for the K DAC. This method of digital-to-analog audio conversion has become highly popular in high-performance audio, especially with more critical headphone systems where the ability to listen to music in a highly linear fashion is essential. Subtle nuances between shades of tonal colors simply flow and more accurately define the artist’s emotional intent hidden within.

The music flows smoothly from this K DAC with the beauty of a finely tuned instrument, maintaining live harmonic structure and vocals in a way XIAUDIO products are well known for. The K DAC reproduces the delicate nuances in your music like no other near this price point.

Pair the K DAC with their matching Broadway Balanced headphone amplifier for a compact, high-performance audiophile desktop/gaming headphone audio system.
