     Fiio KA17 is packed with features for headphone audiophiles: 

    • Dual new ESS 9069Q dac chips
    • THX AAA 78 amp = ultra low distortion
    • High power desktop mode option
    • BAL 4.4mm output & SE 3.5mm out
    • 10 band Parametric EQ (controlled in the app, see below)

    Fiio KA17 is Fiio's first usb powered dongle dac using a THX headphone amp. The unique quality of THX amps is their combination of high power output with very low distortion. KA17 has one of the highest outputs of a dongle dac. 

    The KA17 adds an innovative 'Desktop mode', providing up to double the power output, perfect for most open back and planar headphones. Connect the KA17 via usb, add a second usb cable from the secondary power input to a PD charger - and voila! Desktop mode - this mode allows the KA17 to output desktop amp levels of power! 

    Outstanding performance in store - great detail and dynamic performance with IEM's as well as doing an impressive job with full size headphones. A tiny dac with impressive performance.

    If you have an old Dragonfly Black or Dragonfly Red, upgrade to the KA17 for state of the art portable dac performance in 2024.
