New version of HiFimeDIY Sabre USB DAC 2 (external PSU) with AMP!

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 

New version of the HiFimeDIY Sabre USB DAC 2 (external PSU) comes w/ a headphone amp! has rca & coax outputs. Price: $69.00. Uses a Sabre ES9023 dac chip.

seems like a pretty amazing item for the price!! has a solid dac chip, can be used for coax or rca, has an external power supply... all the high-end features without the high-end price!

 

I would love to hear impressions of people who tried this neat desktop dac/amp out!

Wow I wonder how good the amp is. The Dac is already a value leader

+1,000. I really love how DIY groups can make such feature-packed products for such a low price. really makes me question the mark-up on other equipment. hahah

Do the RCA jacks bypass the amp, or will this lead to double amping when going RCA out to an external headphone amp?

Pretty sure it said you get line level out of the RCA, thus bypassing the internal amp.

Oh, this?

- Normal line level output (2Vrms)

That means the amp is bypassed?

yes, i have also read that the amp is only with the 3.5 headphone jack.

JDS Labs told me yesterday that they can build a custom O2/ODAC combo with a 1/4" jack and line level RCAs for the ODAC. I'm pretty much sold on that even though it's more expensive.

I've just found this DAC and as I need something cheap for my already cheap speaker rig I'll probably order it. I'll let you know when I get it!
