The Topping D90 DAC was probably the best kept secret in the HiFi Industry with it’s insanely good digital conversion and incredible price. After the incredible performance of the original D90 model Topping have now released the D90SE. Due to a stock shortage of AKM chips, the D90SE boasts an ESS DAC internally in order to provide excellent D/A conversion. This alongside it’s ability to be connected using Bluetooth AptX LL makes the D90SE a superb jack of all trades for conversion and streaming.
At Audio Concierge we love sifting through the large amounts of products available from across the planet and choosing a select few to provide our clients. The D90SE is one of those special products that we have to promote and suggest to anyone requiring a DAC for their computer or HiFi system,
On the back of the unit there is a copious array of connections in order to connect pretty much any digital device you may want to connect. For wireless transmission the D90SE, unlike many other DACs has Bluetooth LDAC built in. The enables you to transmit high bitrate audio from your Android smartphone directly to the D90SE. Specification wise the D90SE will play up to DSD512 and can hardware decode the MQA file system.
The D90SE has been designed as a standalone DAC and also a fully balanced design pre amplifier, offering volume control from -99dB to 0dB. This enables you to connect the D90 direct to an amplifier or active speakers and enjoy your music straight away. The fully balanced design using the pair of XLR3 outputs provides awesome levels of clarity and a very low noise floor.
