Sony PHA-1 iDevice/USB DAC and headphone amp unboxing photos
The Sony PHA-1 is an iDevice DAC, a USB DAC (up to 24/96), and a portable amp--all in one. If it's not available at the time of this gallery posting (October 22, 2012), it should be soon in some markets (Japan for sure). Will it come to the U.S.A.? I don't know, but I sure hope so. I was lucky enough to receive this one directly from Naotaka Tsunoda of Sony, who visited Head-Fi's HQ in Michigan last month. My opinion of it? The PHA-1 is awesome.
