The latest fully balanced amplifier in the Aune series, the S7 offers a sleek, uncluttered aesthetic and plenty of power. It has a high rated output of 3,400 mW at 32 ohms and 450 mW at 300 ohms, making it an especially good pairing for high-impedance cans. Its fully balanced, ultra-low-distortion framework includes the highly regarded Titan Artemis amp circuit. And with two gain controls, it can drive most headphones and earphones on the market with ease. Meanwhile, the S6 is a balanced DAC/amp that uses the notable AK4495S DAC. It aims to be neutral in its presentation and has an impressive number of inputs and outputs. While the S6 can adequately power headphones from its balanced port, this unit is at its best when stacked with the S7 and used as the DAC in the setup, as the S7 is a significantly more powerful amplifier.
Note: At checkout, choose the S7 balanced headphone amp or the S6 balanced DAC/amp in black or silver and 110V or 220V. Or, get the S7 and the S6 for an additional $350. Quantities are limited to 50 units.
Earphiles says, "The sound signature is evenhanded from the bass through the mids with a gray upper midrange and treble. It has a laid-back sound that is less punchy than its closest competitor, the Jotunheim, but more neutral, a little more spacious, deeper soundstage, and just about as clean.”
