    Finest components for maximum potential

    The combination of high-performance AKM AK4452 DAC with low-distortion op-amps OPA926x2 and professional-grade LPF TI OPA1612 ensures outstanding performance.

    Modern USB Type-C input interface

    The USB Type-C ensures a more reliable and stable connection. Moreover, the K3 implements overvoltage protection (OVP) and a double-filter circuit to ensure power supply stability.

    ADC volume control

    The use of ADC volume control can not only eliminate channel volume imbalances, but also allows the user to smoothly adjust the volume to a more accurate and finer degree to boost headphones of all kinds of sensitivity for a variety of listening needs.

    I have a few questions. why no AK4490? and whats its output power @ 32ohms? and it has battery or require separate power supply?
     
  6. Brooko Contributor
    Power supply is via USB.

    Output power :
    SE => 220mW into 16 ohms, 120 mW into 32 ohms
    BAL => 320mW into 16 ohms, 200 mW into 32 ohms

    Why the AK4452? Cheaper - and this is a more economical desktop product after all. Plus the levels of performance (considering what is actually audible) are on par with the AK4490 anyway. AK4490 has slightly better specs, but a lot more expensive, and you won't hear the improvement. Like a lot of things in audio - just because the numbers are larger does not necessarily make them better!

    Oh - and it sounds pretty good too!

    Thanks for reply, I was planning to buy Q1 MKII. Since my main use is not portability I can go for this instead, hopefully my local fiio dealer gets it quickly.

    My Motherboard has Optical, Can I connect the K3 to my Computer's Motherboard via Optical Cable?

    High and low gain

    The switch for high and low gain ensures that you can use the K3 with a wide variety of headphones, and that your listening volume needs are covered.

    The optical and coaxial on the K3 are digital output ports, then it can only directly converts USB audio input to digital signals output via the coaxial and optical connectors, allowing you to connect to speaker systems, amplifiers, or other external decoders.

    Tiny round goodness in the palm of your hand

    The all-aluminum black body has been painstakingly CNC-machined, anodized, and sandblasted to ensure that the K3 feels robust yet perfectly textured for a great feel in your hands.

    A distinctly cohesive tactile audiovisual experience

    The volume knob, with 45° notches etched onto its surface and perfectly sized to allow easy one-finger operation. Next to the volume knob is an RGB light that indicates what kind of digital audio is being input to the K3.
