DAC ES9028Q2M XMOS L6, USB3318 CS8416 192kHz / 24-bit DSD128


This compact and elegant DAC incorporates an ES9028Q2M chip and an output stage built around a pair of operational amplifiers OPA111. The device shines by its sound finesse as much as its ease of use: all its basic functions, from power on/off to source selection and volume control are accessible from a sober and stylish façade.

Ideal for small and medium sized installations, DAC3 can be connected to three sources at  the sale tule (Optical, Coaxial, USB) and switch from one to another with a single button touch. The DAC will be able to handle digital flow from TV, a media platform / game console and a streamer / computer to centralize the decoding process to a single amplifier or powered speakers.



The DAC3 uses a ES9028Q2M chip and a USB XMOS interface, two reference components for high fidelity applications. They provide support for PCM audio formats up to 192kHz / 24-bit and DSD (native) up to DSD128.

The USB interface allows the use of the DAC as an external sound card connected directly to a computer or even a smartphone OTG compatible. A USB-B cable to micro-USB with USB-C optional adapter is supplied for this purpose.

Volume control and headphone output

A rotary knob on the front panel allows you to control very easily the volume of the output signal.

The front panel also has a 3.5mm headphone jack connector. The latter is far from trivial, since the headset circuit benefits from the same treatment as the output stage and can thus drive headphones from 32 to 150Ω.


Fine output stage


The DAC3 carries two high performance and low noise operational amplifiers OPA111 (FET) at the core of an output stage capable of delivering up to 5V with a very low distortion (<0.001%).

The unit provides an unbalanced output on RCA connector and a balanced output on XLR-3 connector. It can thus be used with advanced audiophile installations while remaining scalable.

tres bon petit DAC !
Bonjour, je reviens a ce que j'ai écris sur lui !
on peut très bien le brancher via Coax numérique sur une platine CD mais si comme moi, c'est un lecteur DVD, il faudra le configurer via le menu du DVD et la le son serra transmis ! donc véritable couteau Suisse le DAC 3 , je recommande, encore merci a vous !

juste un peux deçu mais content tout de meme !
Oui je dis cela dans le titre car je pensais que l'on pouvait sans passer par un PC le joindre a une platine CD via coax numérique , il en n'ai rien, on ne peut pas ! pas grave, il me sert tout de même de DAC ampli casque via PC et il fonctionne superbement bien !
petite info, il y a bien une alimentation fourni avec le DAC mais embout coté prise Anglaise! juste a acheter un adaptateur ! merci pour la rapidité d'envois a AUDIOPHONICS!
