Topping is back with another ambitious product, this time in the form of an all-in-one headphone AMP + DAC device. The DX9 celebrates the company’s 15th anniversary and sports AKM’s potent AK4499EQ DAC chip alongside AK4118 S/PDIF receiver to ensure ultra-high dynamic range combined with low jitter. The brand’s NFCA tech makes a return on the amplifier side, promising 7W of power per channel alongside ultra-low distortion.
A precision hybrid volume relay network optimises SNR whilst offering fine-grain volume adjustability. In addition, the DX9 has been designed with independent AMP and DAC circuits to maximise performance. With eight digital inputs, Bluetooth, line out and pre-amp functionality, the DX9 is as versatile as it is performance-orientated.
The DX9 is now available for $1299 USD. You can read all about it and treat yourself to a unit on Apos Audio!
