It is a 5-in-1 unit: can be used as 1) external USB DAC for laptop computer through any output, 2) headphone amp, 3) tube processor for analog signal, 4) digital decoder for optical and coaxial signal, 5) pre-amplifier with volume control.
You can use it straight with your digital source such as laptop computer and music server and play music back through your existing amplifier or powered speakers. Or you can just get a pair of high quality headsets and enjoy the music in private!
(5) sets of selectable inputs to permit you a lot of options - consisting of 2 sets RCA, 1 coaxial, 1 optical and 1 USB
(2) sets of RCA Outputs customized to your taste - one with transistor and one with a single 6N11 vacuum tube (can be replaced with 6922, E88CC, 6DJ8, 6H23n and CCa tubes) with passive volume control
DAC direct output - by pass tube buffer stage and volume control for you to match the DAC with other high end amplification (amp must have its own volume control as DAC direct output pass signal at complete volume).
Built-in transistor headphone amp to permit you enjoy music in personal privacy (conventional 6.5 mm jack). Alternatively, you can use a RCA to 6.5 mm jack adapter to connect headsets straight to the rear tube output.
