Look! An ESS Sabre DAC 9281c Pro!

Number soup rarely sounds this good.

It supports PCM up to 384 kHz, DSD up to 5.6MHz, and MQA support. Keeping the Pilot with you gives you a key to unlock high-resolution in whatever device may be near.

Wow. Small but powerful

I use these to drive my Grado PS500e on my iPhone and the sound difference is instantly recognizable! I play hi def FLAC files and this little DAC is amazing. Highly recommended.
