If you're looking for a portable DAC/amplifier combo that doesn't mess around, Sony's new PHA-3 is here to bring your music to the next level of detail and transparency. Compatible with PC, Mac, digital audio player, iOS, and Android devices alike, the PHA-3 is the statement product from Sony you've been waiting for.
Designed around an ESS ES9018 DAC chip, a 32-bit chip with an S/N ratio of 120 dB or better, you're getting audiophile grade quality with the Sony PHA-3. And with Hi-Res quality comes compatibility - 384 kHz/32 bit PCM files and DSD files up to 5.6 MHz are a breeze. Amplifying demanding headphones is a challenge this amp/DAC combo passes with flying color - outputting 100 mW in normal and 320 mW in a balanced connection, the PHA-3 provides a quiet floor for 8 Ohm IEMs while driving 600 Ohm headphones with power to spare.
Constructed with the audiophile in mind, the sleek and solid aluminum chassis is eye-catching yet understated. Versatility is the name of the game - use the PHA-3 at home and enjoy audio quality that rivals many desktop setups. When you feel the urge to get out of the house, the PHA-3 doubles as a portable all-in-one unit so that your music sounds just as good on-the-go.
