Hilidac Audirect Beam 2 MQA DSD Portable DAC/Amp

RM 584.99 RM 625.00

Our take

Audirect Beam 2 MQA 3.5mm/ 2.5mm Balanced Hi-Res Portable Headphone Amplifier is a small, versatile and powerful DAC/ Amp featuring ES9118 SABRE HiFi System-On-Chip (SOC). The Beam 2 is the first true BAL + Non-BAL dual earphone ports USB product to offer an integrated MQA renderer hardware, making MQA playback easy and complete. 

It might be a little pricey, but the features; Type C input, both single-ended and balanced out, MQA, DSD playbackm compatible across wide range of devices, could potentially justify itself. 

"This device is meant for those who prefer a more controlled and precise low-end which borders on the clinical favor of a particularly clear and transparent sound." Credit: NewEve head-fi.org
