Topping D30 DAC, A30 Headphone Amp & PA3 Stereo Amp

DSD-Compatible Budget DAC

Praised on Head-Fi as a great value DAC to build a system around, the Topping D30 is easy to use and easy to love. It features the highly regarded Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC chip—along with WIMA, EPCOS, and Nichicon FW capacitors and the OPA2134 high-fidelity opamp—and supports DSD64, DSD128, and PCM formats up to 24 bit/192 kHz. The circuit has been specially designed to eliminate pop noise, and the laser-engraved aluminum shell is sleek, sturdy, and compact. Plus, it’s as user-friendly as they come, its front panel fitted with two LED indicators and two switches: one for on/off and the other to switch between optical, coaxial, and USB.

Note: The items on this drop are available separately or as a set, and all three can be stacked together for a full-featured audiophile setup. At checkout, choose the D30 DAC (base price); the A30 headphone amp (- $15); the PA3 stereo amp (- $15); the D30 and A30 (+ $85); the D30 and PA3 (+ $85); or the D30, A30, and PA3 (+ $160). For the A30, choose 110V or 220V. The D30 comes with a 110V/220V switching power supply; a US or EU cable will be chosen based on your location.

A30 Headphone Amp & PA3 Stereo Amp

The A30 is a powerful headphone amplifier designed to be stacked on top of the D30 to make a compact headphone system. It can output 1551 mW at 32 ohms: enough to drive demanding headphones. Meanwhile, the PA3 is a compact power amplifier ideal for powering passive bookshelf speakers. It’s equipped with ST’s class-D TDA7498E amp chip and delivers 80 watts per channel at a 4-ohm load: enough to drive 10-inch speakers.
