TEAC HA-P90SD Digital Audio Player

Solid Build, Crystal-Clear Sound

Named an Everything Audio Network “Product of the Year” in 2015, the TEAC HA-P90SD can be used as a portable music player, amp, DAC, or all three. The solidly built aluminum chassis offers a nice weight in the hand, with thoughtful design elements like stepped panels for a better grip and protrusions that guard the volume knob from accidental bumps. With two gain settings (high and low) and one of the highest power amps available in a DAP (170 mW + 170 mW through the headphone out), the TEAC HA-P90SD has what it takes to drive sensitive IEMs and demanding headphones alike.

Note: This drop is for the red model only.
