    Introduction Tempotec continues to renew its product range. This time it is the turn of the simplest device: the Sonata HD II. This is the smallest DAC/AMP, which replaces the Sonata HD.

    Thank you for your words. I am sorry to comment that I do not have the Shanling UA2. Well, actually I don't have any Shanling, nor have I been able to test it on any Tour in my country. :sweat:

    As always, it is a pleasure to read your point of view, also because you add different appreciations that enrich the review. Thanks for the review. On the other hand, it's strange that the same device could have been added twice... xDDDDD...

    Introduction Hidizs is not giving fans a break. After the fire at the AKM plant in Japan on 20 October 2020, many of the audio devices that used AKM chips have had to move to another manufacturer, due to the difficulty of finding them. This is the case of the S9, which used an AK4493EQ as a...

    Review by 'cqtek' on item 'Tempotec Sonata E35'

    Introduction Once again, Tempotec is extending its Sonata series with a new member, building on the Dual DAC path started with the BHD model.

    Obscure Chinese DAPs

    First measurements without load and at 32 Ohms. As usual with xDuoo specifications, they are exaggerated. On the other hand, a voltage of almost 1.2V in such a small device, I find almost excellent. Also, the output impedance is very low, less than 1. Such values are not easy to find at this...
