Small DAC, but not small sound.
Featuring 32bit/384kHz Hi Res Audio in a Velvet Sound AK4493 DAC, this little DAC cable adapter brings big sound.
Desktop Level DAC Chip The DC01 supports up to 32bit/384kHz PCM decoding and up to 256x Native DSD decoding, with a THD+N below 0.001% and providing high power output of up to 113mW @32ohm. With this you are more fully able to make full use of quality of your valuable music. Wonderful HiFi music starts from the heart of the music source.
The AK4493 is a desktop level stereo DAC chip, featuring AKM’s Velvet Sound technology. The signal-to-noise ratio has been improved when compared to the previous AK4490. It can be found in new generation desktop DACs and is widely used in high end portable audio players. With extensive work we have implemented the AK4493 into the compact DC01 DAC cable adapter.
True Balanced Headphone Amplifier iBasso introduces the concept of balanced audio in professional audio, into this portable DAC cable adapter. It uses a true balanced circuit with dual ultra-low distortion LDOs to create a true balanced amplifier, which provides high output power with improved.
No Compromise on Interconnect Cable After many tests and samples, we chose this 8-wire braided audiophile cable as the DC01's interconnect cable, due to its purer signal transmission and better durability.
From Smartphone to Computer: UAC2.0 USB Soundcard The DC01 uses a USB-C connector and utilizes the standard UAC2.0 USB receiver. It is compatible with most Android Smartphones and tablets on the market. It can also be connected to the Mac and Windows computers via the high-quality supplied C to A converter. This allows it to work as a USB Soundcard. With the DC01 using the standard UAC2.0 sound card chipset, Mac and Win10 computers are plug-and-play. For WinXP, Win7, and Win8 systems, please download the driver from iBasso's website. Once properly installed, it can be used as a USB soundcard.
With a Dedicated App, the DC01 Achieves 64-Step Hardware Volume Windows 10 and Android 5.0 and above support the UAC2.0 protocol by default. However, for compatibility reasons, Android Smartphone manufacturers still use SRC on audio output. When DC01 is connected, the maximum volume is achieved by default, the software algorithm of the device is used to reduce the volume. The software algorithm can reduce the volume but cannot reduce the noise floor. Therefore, iBasso developed a UAC2.0 volume controller app to achieve 64-step hardware volume control, effectively reducing the noise floor while achieving a better audio performance.

Drives my Sundara's with no problem and remarkably detailed sound.
I bought this and a $30 2.5mm cable to try out balanced audio in order to get more out of my Shure SE846 IEMs. I had been using a stock 3.5mm unbalanced cable before and a few different USB-C DACs. Focusing on the balanced vs unbalanced sound, if that's what you're considering, I am very satisfied with the difference. Using 24/96 FLACs and TIDAL masters, I noticed a bigger soundstage and more isolation overall using this compared to the sound over the stock cable and even a much beefier amp. Quieter background parts leap out with remarkable clarity. It's very small and light, with an overall high-quality feel, but I'm a bit worried about the short cable guards. Software-wise, TIDAL had no problem detecting it and auto-selecting the proper format on my Mac, and ditto USB audio player pro on my android phone. The shipping updates page didn't work, but it arrived in just under 2 weeks.
The app doesn't work and crashes on the my android 10 phone despite the fact that the app description says so. Be sure to check it before you buy if you want UAC.
