This reissue of Compass comes back in a version featuring the new USB interface of the brand (USB32) and two converter ES9018.
This very versatile device (DAC, Headphone Amplifier and Preamplifier), has many inputs (USB, Coax, Toslink and Line in) to be comfortable in all configurations.
The brand's engineers have designed this device to ensure its scalability (it is possible to change at will the USB interface, the converter or discrete Aop).
Its Ultra Modern DAC allows you to manage 32-bit 192KHz sources directly via USB and SPDIF inputs.
The 100% discreet design of this amplifier is backed by a high power power supply.
the 24k Gold Plated RCA and the Nover (UK) capacitors have been specially manufactured on Audio-Gd specifications.
