Cayin C5 DAC/Amp

Now With DAC Functionality!

The Cayin C5 portable amplifier has been a big hit with the audiophile community. So when the folks at Cayin decided to take it to the next level, they improved it in just about the only way they could: by adding DAC functionality. The result—the C5 DAC/amp—is a digital powerhouse, complete with the highly regarded PCM1795 decoding chip and support for files up to 24 bit/96 kHz. Its other components include an OP1652 opamp and a BUF632 buffer, all packaged inside an aluminum body with a champagne-gold finish. Along with a high/low gain switch that allows it to power everything from full-size headphones to sensitive IEMs, this DAC/amp has bands you can use to strap it to your smartphone.
