Hybrid Headphone Amp

The SMSL T1 combines two discrete, independent components into one unit: a DAC on the bottom and a hybrid tube amp on the top. Along with USB PCM support for up to 32 bit/384 kHz, it provides DSD playback support up to 22.6 MHz. The front panel features a headphone output and a large volume control that rotates with smooth, satisfying motion, while the back panel houses a huge variety of inputs and outputs. Along with coaxial, optical, USB, and RCA inputs, you’ll find a DAC out (RCA) and a pre-out for use from your amp to your speakers. One Headfonia reviewer says, "A low price, good sound quality, versatility, a rollable tube. It's really hard to go wrong with this one."
