Product Details


DA004Mini's design ideas are derived from the highly acclaimed DA004 Ultimate, Mini Miniature form factor, retaining most of the essence of DA004 Ultimate, such as Crystek femtosecond clock, unique Class A discrete output circuit, multi-channel ultra-low noise Power and so on, the Mini's new miniaturized decoder has a very good sound base.

 The MH-DA004Mini is available in two configuration versions:

The first is the standard version, the internal use of the Italian Amanero USB module is standard, and the module uses a common active crystal.

The second is the USB upgrade version, which uses two expensive Crystek CCHD-957 ultra-low time base jitter active clocks to make the sound field wider and the sound more vivid, full and transparent.

For those who use USB to connect to a computer, we recommend you purchase a USB upgrade.

The difference between the two versions is only in the USB receiving part, the other parts are exactly the same, and the USB part will not affect the performance of other interfaces of the DAC.
