Equal parts sleek and powerful, the Sony PHA-1A portable DAC/amp makes an ideal pairing for your smartphone, PC, and Sony digital audio players. It features a high-performance Wolfson WM8790 DAC that supports PCM files up to 192 kHz/24 bit, along with a low-noise, low-distortion LME49860 opamp and a high-output TPA6120 headphone amp. The OCL amplifier output stage use two power supply methods, and the wide frequency range—10 Hz to 100 kHz—is designed to cover today’s variety of music styles. Capable of driving quality IEMs and portable headphones like the Sony MDR-1A and Oppo PM-3, this DAC/amp has a lightweight, rugged, and interference-shielding aluminum build. In the box, you’ll find cables for both the Walkman and the Xperia, plus a silicone band for strapping the PHA-1A to your device of choice.
