DAC USB Amplificateur Casque Symétrique ES9038Q2M AD8397

E1DA 9038SG3 DAC USB Amplificateur Casque Symétrique ES9038Q2M AD8397

The 9038SG3 from E1DA is a high performance USB DAC and portable symmetrical headphone amplifier combo. Compact and lightweight, it nevertheless incorporates excellent components to ensure excellent sound reproduction, marked by incredible precision and richness.

For example, its aluminium shell conceals a DAC ES9038Q2M chip supporting high sample rates up to 32bit 384kHz PCM and DSD256. The 9038SG3 works without battery and is powered directly by your playback device (smartphone, DAP...) but offers a particularly low power consumption. The input is on USB-C connector where the output is on a balanced 2.5mm jack plug (pinout Astell & Kern). The USB interface chip is a ComTrue CT7601 with 100% proprietary code to maximize Android and DSD compatibility.

The instrument's measurements are particularly good, with a wide frequency response from 10Hz to 100kHz, an SNR of -123dBA, a dynamic range of 123dBA, or a THD of only 0.0002% (@ 32Ω, 1kHz, -3dBFS). Under these circumstances, the distortion is almost indistinguishable from electronic noise.

E1DA Tweak9038 App

E1DA's Tweak9038 application allows you to control harmonic distortion compensation, select a Nyquist filter, manage the Master Clock frequency and much more. Most of the parameters can be set dynamically depending on the hardware volume, audio data rate, etc. An ideal tool to adapt the sound reproduction of your DAC according to your listening and your hardware.

Application E1DA Tweak9038 Android

It is not possible and strongly discouraged to use a balanced to unbalanced adapter with the 9038SG3. This could damage it irreparably.

E1DA 9038S Gen 3 review by Audio Science Review

" ... inside lives a potent, highly optimized DAC and efficient headphone amplifier. It shows excellent command of engineering and proper design verification through measurements. "
Test du E1DA 9038S Gen 3 par Audio Science Review

Test by MACFAY

In short it is a gold nugget. unfortunately exclusively devoted to symmetrical headphones. But for those who have it, there is no hesitation, it is quite possibly the best value for money right now.

Excellent
Suite aux conseils d'Audiophonics j'ai acheté cette "toute petite chose" pour redonner vie à un HD 600.
Bien sur il faut rajouter un câble symétrique a 25€ facilement trouvable sur ALI...
Le résultat est excellent. Le casque a retrouvé une seconde jeunesse : plus de précision, plus de dynamique, plus de spatialisation.
Merci encore à Audiophonics pour la qualité de leurs conseils.

Formidable, étonnant!!!
J'ai acheté ce petit boitier sur conseil d'Audiophonics. Une petite bombe!! Etonnant tant sur un PC que sur smartphone. Drive même mon HD600 de 300ohms. Rendu plein de vie et de richesse. Seul souci : branchement symétrique obligatoire. Il serait aussi super de trouver un branchement permettant la connexion sur Android tout en chargeant le smartphone et pourquoi pas fournir le 5V du DAC...
