I'm currently auditioning the unit.
The DacAmp One only arrived yesterday and I tell you guys it sounds excellent as both a dac and amp.
The resolution, refinement and detail this unit puts out is far the best I've heard far as portable amps go. Technical abilities: DacAmp One is a very strong amp technically, you wouldn't need anymore and It's really more about that high end timbre and atmosphere Tralucents products push out.
I've been running it as an amp from DX50 line out and there's absolutely no veil what so ever as I've found in cheaper amps, just crystal clear reproduction, it makes the DX50 sound like something worth a lot more. . The resolution and posture samples hold in the mid range up to the highs is truly first-class as you would expect from Tralucent.
Even running a pair of old Sony MDR-V6 last night just for fun, was super impressive what this dac/amp did to them.
Two gain modes, optical in, USB in / charging , 30 hour run times, and uses the ess 9023 DAC, up to 24/96 (16bit of course too)
I'm rather honoured to hear such a product, must resist buying one..........
Do you have an iPhone? Would you be able to test if it can bypass the iPhone's DAC via CCK adapter?
Edit - Gavin just confirmed it is Apple compatible via CCK Adapter. =D
