With a softly curved design inspired by nature, the Yulong DAART Canary DAC/amp packs a lot of features into a compact package. It has an especially powerful Class-A design and can output 1,000 mW at 32 ohms: enough to drive demanding headphones with ease. Equipped with an ESS9018K2M DAC chip and an XMOS U8 solution, the DAC/amp has a number of high-end touches—including an 18-karat-gold-plated input indication panel on the front. Head-Fi user YoYo JoKeR calls the sound “very transparent, flat, and extremely detailed,” adding: “I am hearing subtle details I’ve never heard before. Depth is amazing, too. This is the device that redefines budget listening.”
