Maximum resolution: Hi-Res playback up to 32 bit / 384 kHz
When compared with stationary high-end systems, the inner technology effortlessly stands up. The Sabre32 Mobile Reference DACTM decrypts high-resolution audio signals up to a resolution of 32 bits and 384 kilohertz. Other devices in this class category typically achieve values of only 24 bit/192 kHz.
The mobile digital-analogue converter even supports DSD signals (Direct Stream Digital) of 2.8 and 5.6 megahertz. The DAC uses a hi-res LED as a control function. When it lights up, the player is indeed sending high-resolution audio information to the converter. Users can select their preferred hi-res player app as a playback program.
This means that the sound quality no longer depends on the components of the playback device. Instead, the DAC converts the high-resolution music data back to analogue format and amplifies it – with a precision that takes full advantage of the acoustic potential of the headphones used.
The high-performance headphone amplifier can supply even 600-ohm converters as in the T5 (2nd gen) without restriction. In other words, all that's needed to enjoy music in the highest quality is one of the three high-end headphones from beyerdynamic and the Impacto universal.
