Super Amp

Just to share superamp stretch goal reached!

Output 5V, Headroom 14db, Impedence < 1 ohm, distortion 0.01%

Also there is another promotion to grab another casing at the lowest price available, which can be used to safeguard your next iphone purchase in case it comes in another form factor.

very analog sounding... and warm. clearly not for contemporary music.


if you listen to many oldies like me, it would really suit you. if not, it probably does not sound that fantastic compared to say, ESS 9018

AKM dac tend to be less detailed but more smoother(analog) sounding than ES9018S. AKM quite good for jazz but not so for rock and other EDM like music.

Ti/Burr Brown should be inbetween this two.
