Great-Sounding, High-Value DAC/Amp

A portable, no-nonsense DAC/amp with the sound quality of a much pricier device, the HiFime Sabre 9018 delivers value and versatility in spades. It can play virtually any format, from CD quality all the way up to 24 bit/96 kHz files, and pairs well with low-impedance IEMs, high-impedance headphones, and line-level devices like preamps and amplifiers. The ultra-low noise regulator, solid aluminum capacitors, and patented time domain jitter eliminator keep self-noise to a minimum so your music can really shine. The Sabre 9018 is also compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, iTunes, Spotify, and Android—no drivers required.

Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of connectors between the standard USB for computer use, the microUSB for Android phones, and the USB Type-C for new Android phones.
