This chipset enhances performance with lower power consumption and reduced digital noise, offering a dynamic range (DNR) of 130dB and THD+N up to 120dB. Designed with a low output resistance of 39ohms, it supports both hardware and TDM modes for versatile applications.

Featuring the All-New THX AAA 78+ Headphone Amplification

Incorporating the upgraded THX AAA 78+ headphone amp, the KA17 delivers pristine audio reproduction. This advanced amp design, in a 4-channel fully balanced configuration with eight op-amps, ensures powerful output and detailed sound accuracy. It provides clean, high-resolution audio for a superior listening experience with IEMs and headphones.

Equipped with Audiophile-Grade 16 Core XMOS XU316

The KA17 integrates a 16-core XMOS XU316 chipset, setting new standards for USB audio transmission. Supporting up to 768kHz/32bit, native DSD512 decoding, and MQA full decoding, it offers low latency and stable signal transmission. The XMOS XU316 chipset enhances compatibility and ensures optimal performance across various digital audio sources.

Ten-Level Highly Precise PEQ Adjustment

Enjoy customizable sound with the KA17’s ten-band PEQ adjustment capability, tailored to your preferred listening style. This feature allows precise control over frequency, gain, and bandwidth, optimizing your audio experience up to PCM 192kHz/24bit formats.

Multistage Audio Circuit
