Let Sound Run Wild

While you probably have the ideal headphone amplifier and DAC set-up at home, chances are you’re still relying on your iPhone’s internal chip when you’re on the run.

The iPhone’s Friend

Using one of the highest quality DAC chips on the market- the Wolfson WM8741- the C6 is capable of sampling at up to 16 bits or 44.1/48 kHz. While you can plug any device through the front 1/8” jack and use the C6 as only an amplifier, it is meant mostly for iDevices, namely any iPhone after the 3GS, all iPads, and the iPod Touch. Most DACs require a separate camera accessory kit to link up to your iPhone, but the C6 connects simply through the included Lightning and 30-pin cables.
