Highlights - DA - 10
The DA-10 with USB DAC is Denon's first ever mobile headphone amplifier. In addtition to exculsive Denon technologies and state-of-the D / A conversion, it offers compatibility with high-resolution audio files, including up to 24-bit / 192 kHz PCM and 2.8 and 5.6 MHz DSD audio files.
Aiming at the needs of audiophiles and discerning music lovers, the DA-10 follows Denon's puristic approach: the sleek, aluminium-finished case features a solid aluminium-body volume button, and the included carrying case holds a portable audio device in addition to the DA-10 or smartphone.
While portable audio players, smartphones, and tablets easily support normal headphones, their analogue audio levels are usually unable to operate higher impedance headphones, and the quality of their internal digital-to-analogue (DAC) converters is not up to standard, the discerning listener expect. With the DA-10, this is different: with its advanced audio technologies developed by Denon's audio experts, it brings all the details, the entire bass and all the emotions to life. These feature are not only noticeable in high-end audiophile headphones, but are also noticeable in standard and even ear headphones: for more power, more refinement and more volume with higher dynamics. But that's not all that the DA-10 offers. Another application is the use as an external DAC for your analog hi-fi system: Simply connect it to your stereo system to enjoy digital music library in the best audio quality. The DA-10 features state-of-the-art D / A conversion with its reference-class 32 bit / 192 kHz Burr-Brown PCM- 1795, which is commonly found in premium disc players and digital amplifiers for audiophile needs. The DAC is capable of decoding linear PCM files at sample rates of 32 to 192 kHz and bit depths of up to 24 bits. It is also compatible with single-bit DSD files, the format used on SACDs.
