The award winning exaSound e22 Mark II…Top notch sound at a wallet friendly price. With its own custom drivers, the e22 will play anything your computer can throw at it, from 44.1 to DXD and DSD4.
Balanced or unbalanced inputs and outputs offer complete flexibility, while the included remote gives you armchair convenience. Reference grade sound, with a headphone output that rivals costly stand–alone HPAs.
In excellent condition, with original packaging. You may know the specs, but here they are anyway…
  1. Sample Rates: ENclusiv™ comprehensive sample rate support
    1. DSD: 2.8224 or 3.072 MHz
    2. DSD2: 5.6448 or 6.144 MHz
    3. DSD4: 11.2896 or 12.288 MHz
    4. LPCM/DXD: 44.1kHz to 384kHz at 32 bits maximum sampling rate
    5. Native support for 88.2, 176.4 & (DXD) 352.8kHz master files
  2. Converter Core: ESS Technologies 9018S Classic SABRE32 reference monolythic 8 channel DAC configured for stereo
  3. USB Input: Proprietary ZeroJitter™ asynchronous USB interface with error correction on classic B–Type connector, USB cable included
  4. Host Support: Custom, high performance Mac OS & Windows ASIO drivers; MAC Core Audio drivers with DoP256 support
  5. Player Application Support: Automatic sampling rate switching, software upsampling up to 384 kHz PCM and DSD4
  6. Clock: FemtoMaster™ super–low jitter 0.082ps (82fs) master clock with jitter minimization utilizing 3 three precision oscillators
  7. Power Conditioning: 11 linear power filtering stages
  8. Host Noise Rejection: Galvanic isolation between the USB subsystem and the DAC circuitry eliminates ground loop noise and blocks computer–generated interference
  9. Headphone Output: Third generation headphone amplifier, 4W into 16Ω doubles the current output to drive low impedance and low sensitivity headphones
  10. Digital Inputs: Two S/PDIF inputs provide jitter reduction and superb D/A conversion when used with CD transports
  11. Analog Outputs: Simultaneously driven, gold–plated balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA line outputs
  12. Power Management: 12V Trigger output
  13. Remote Control: Included 7 button remote, the e22 can be easily programmed to work with most IR remotes

Bottom Line: crazy good sound, plays every SR native, no upsampling
