Boasting high-end specs and the looks to match, the Opus #2 digital audio player is built with two Sabre32 ES9018K2M DACs for outstanding performance in native DSD playback, as well as high-res audio files up to 32 bit/384 kHz. If you’d like to make further use of these excellent DACs, the player can also be used as a USB DAC. Along with a 2.5-millimeter balanced output, it has a 3.5-millimeter earphone/headphone audio output that allows it to connect to SPDIF-input audio equipment using an optical cable. You’ll get a hefty 128 gigs of built-in memory, plus the option to add 200 gigs with a micro-SD card.
In a five-star review, Head-Fi user Dobrescu George says, “Instead of focusing on the absolute analytical ability, #2 focuses on how musical and organic it can sound, providing a full-bodied signature, a very wide and deep soundstage, an excellent instrument separation, and a natural, balanced, and slightly smooth signature that can be listened for hours in a row, and which can still provide an excellent experience for the listener. All in all, #2 is one of the best DAPs in the world at this hour, and it most certainly looks and acts like it."
