Audeze Deckard Headphone Amplifier and DAC
Reasonably priced headphone amp/DAC that offers strong performance
Solid design marks and high-performance musicality
Thanks to some assistance from Designworks, Audeze has managed to make its first headphone amplifier and digital-to-analog converter (DAC) look nearly as good as the company’s iconic headphones. And the Deckard amp/DAC combo is capable of driving nearly every headphone on the market for a reasonable price. Full class-A circuit design ensures that the sound quality is clean and crisp, with good soundstaging and a robust midrange. The amplifier sports single-ended inputs and a USB port, and it has an output stage for preamplifier use.
32-bit 384 kHz
Notes: DAC supports up to 32-bit 384 kHz files, and includes a USB cable and an AC power cord.
