e38 DAC Overview

exaSound introduces the e38 8-channel DAC - 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.
