Dual DAC - AKM AK4493EQ

Features two AKM AK4493EQ DAC chipsets, natively decodes up to DSD256 and 32 Bit/384kHz with stellar dynamic range and resolution.
When operating in Mono mode, the DAC will deliver better dynamic range, signal to noise ratio and channel separation.

Fully Balanced Design - Powerful 800mW Headphone output

The DAC outputs the hot and cold signal streams identically except for the polarity.These will go through LPF and a headphone amplifier in parallel. When L+,L-,R+ and R- are transmitted and processed independently, common-mode noise will be cancelled out and cross-talk will be reduced. The differential headphone amplifier outputs the difference between the hot and cold signals, and this will increase the output power and channel separation significantly.

Ed Meyette
Best for the money

If you appreciate music the way it was recorded and intended to be listened to without being processed by equalization this is awesome. If you are into the over emphasized treble and/or bass don't expect much from this fine, quality designed equipment.

natan bar
great little dap

Lee Underwood
Perfect Fit

Case is made for this music player. Price is good.

Alex K
Great quality & very good size

Recommend it! Quality of the sound is very good, plus this great analog tube sounds makes me happy with my favourite playlists.

Kevin S
Fantastic DAP...Tube sound...Superb Sound Quality

I am very impressed with this DAP. I really enjoy switching between the Solid State and Tubes when I plug in my IEM. There are 4 different sound modes and each provides a slightly different flavor on the replay. It pairs well with Flagships such as Sony Z1R or UM Mest, but also with an affordable iem like BLON BL-03 or Thieaudio Legacy 3. The clean output of the solid state or the warmer sound of the tubes should put a smile on your face and have you toe tapping to your music on-the-go.

Shipping FAQ

Which countries do you ship to?

We are generally able to ship to most countries via Express Shipping, and many countries via Standard Shipping. You may clarify this with our team to check whether Standard Shipping is available to your country.

We cannot ship to addresses that are "PO boxes or APO/FPO".

*Note: Generally, we can only do Selected Shipping to India and Russia. We can only do Express Shipping to Africa, Argentina, Hawaii, Kuwait, Mauritius, Montenegro and Sri Lanka, to name a few.
This may be subjected to changes due to unpredictable issues such as Covid, war, and etc.

How much does shipping cost?

We have two shipping methods - Standard Shipping and Express Shipping.

Standard Shipping is free for most countries, while Express Shipping is 15-35USD depending on your country. If your order is over 270USD, Express Shipping is free*. 

*This applies for most countries. However, large items such as headphones and desktop DAC/AMPs (e.g. HarmonicDyne G200, MUSICIAN MDP-2, and etc.) are excluded.

Shipping fees exclude import taxes or processing fees that may be applicable for your country. Linsoul is not responsible for such fees. Should you refuse to pay the tax/customs fees, shipping fees will still be deducted from the amount paid for the two-way freight charges. The cost of the freight charges may be more than the amount reflected on your order due to tax and other miscellaneous fees.

Some parcels claimed to be “returned to the seller” may be destroyed by the post office or customs officers when buyers refuse to accept their parcels or fail to pay for their taxes. No refund will be processed for such cases.

Standard Shipping via YunExpress is a tax-inclusive option for some countries. However, Linsoul will not be responsible for additional administrative or handling fees charged by your local courier company or customs. Please kindly check this with your local customs.

For certain remote areas, there may be additional charges via Express Shipping. We will contact you if there is a need to make additional payments. 
Please contact us before placing an order, should you have any queries regarding shipping.  

How long does it take to receive the order after it is placed?

For in-stock products, your order will be shipped within 3 working days. You may check with our staff regarding the in-stock status of any products. 

Customized items will take a longer time. Please contact our staff for more information.

On normal non-sale days, once your parcel has been shipped out:

  • For Standard Shipping, it takes about 2-4 weeks for items to be delivered after shipping out. For some countries, it might take up to 2-3 months, depending on your country, its customs and other factors.* The duration for transit is something beyond our control. Linsoul will not be making refunds for such cases. Please consider an upgrade to Express Shipping or keep the waiting time in mind.
  • For Express Shipping, it takes about 3-7 days for items to be delivered after shipping out.

*Note: Timings might be affected due to festive seasons or other unforeseen circumstances

What happens if the parcel has been shipped but not delivered?
  1. First, kindly contact your local courier using the local tracking number.
    If your parcel were to be in transit for at least 3 months, it may have been lost in transit.
    For orders below $50USD, you may either opt for a one-time reshipment of parcel OR a full refund of the amount paid in cash via PayPal/Credit/Debit card.
    For orders above $50USD, we will only process a 50% refund of your order paid in cash via PayPal/Credit/Debit card. Should there be any concern about Standard Shipping, you are encouraged to opt for DHL Express Shipping instead.
  2. Customers are to bear the consequences and fees incurred, if the parcel was undelivered due to any of the following situation:
    • Wrong address or phone number provided by recipient
    • Recipient was uncontactable when courier company contacted
    • Refusal to sign for the package by recipient
    • Lost or damaged parcel because recipient opted for “no-signature delivery”
    • Refusal to pay for the local tax/processing fee by recipient
    • Refusal to provide supporting documents for custom clearance by recipient
Who will pay for the import tax/custom fees

Customers have to bear any form of custom/import/processing fees that are applicable for your parcel.

Should you be unwilling to pay for the fees and reject the delivery of the parcel, you will still have to pay for the shipping cost. Linsoul will only refund the amount of your order after deducting the two-way shipping fees incurred.
