Hi all,

Hope you are enjoying the holiday season! We are happy to announce that Apos Audio is now carrying the just-launched xDuoo TA-22 DAC/Tube amp. One of their most feature-rich units to date, the TA-22 is a desktop DAC and balanced tube headphone amplifier that provides high-performance USB, optical, coaxial, and Bluetooth 5.1 audio decoding.
Using a hybrid amp structure, it offers the best of both tube and transistor worlds. With strong output power, the transistors can drive any sort of headphone, while dual 12AU7 tube amplification provides musicality, warmth, and smoothness.

Here’s the link to the blog for more information: apos.audio/blogs/news/buy-the-xduoo-ta-22-dac-tube-amp-on-apos-audio

I wonder if the TA-22 would be meaningfully better than combining Xduoo’s MT-604 with a good DAC? I have 604 already…
Hi there,
Bluetooth 5.1(you can enjoy audiophile-grade Bluetooth codecs, like LDAC and aptX HD), additional power(3000mW (32Ω), and dual saber DAC chips might be good reasons to try the TA-22.
This is one of the first reviews that came out from Zreviews:

I don't own the TA-22 but I use Philips 6189W as an alternative to 12AU7's in my TA-20 amp. They work well and are not too tubey. I also like RCA NOS 12AU7's. Each of these are fairly easy to find and reasonably priced.

Where did you order Telefunken tubes from?
BTW, I have XDuoo TA-22 paired with Audeze LCD-2 for a month now. I was also very pleased right form the start. But wait for couple of weeks until amp burns in. Massive difference, now sounds much better. And that is with stock tubes.
