e38 DAC Overview

The e38 8-channel DAC is a fourth generation DSD256 DAC. Built around the ES9028PRO monolithic DAC chip from ESS Technologies, the e38 has vanishingly low distortion and noise levels, and astonishingly clean analog-like sound. The e38 offers a high power, high performance headphone amplifier and ultimate resolution volume control.


The e38 DAC is an A+ Stereophile Recommended Component for Fall 2017 in the Digital Processor category. This recognition comes after its predecessor e28 – the world’s first multichannel DSD256 DAC was included in the Stereophile Recommended A+ list for three years in a row.
