The latest DAC/amp in Aune’s “S” series, the S6 uses the notable AK4495 DAC chip and aims for a neutral presentation. Along with a powerful built-in headphone amplifier, it has an impressive number of inputs and outputs—including USB, coaxial, optical, and AES digital inputs, plus XLR and RCA outputs. The S6 is capable of decoding 32-bit/384kHz files and has native DSD support. On the front panel, you’ll find a high-quality TFT screen alongside a headphone jack and a large volume dial.
Note: At checkout, choose black or silver in 110V or 220V.
Head-Fi member Hisoundfi says, "In terms of headphone driving performance, the S6 is pretty fabulous. There’s never been a time I’ve listened to the S6 and not walked away impressed (regardless of what earphones I use it with). The sound quality and powerful headphone amplifier (for a DAC) that is built in makes it a big winner in my opinion. For most people looking for a solid desktop setup, there’s not much more you’d need beyond this device, and if you did, we’re probably talking about spending a lot more."
