Fiio K5 Pro ESS Edition

Fiio K5 Pro ESS, new 2022 version desktop dac and headphone amp is a high power headphone amp with a quality dac built in, designed to improve the sound quality of music from a computer, out to headphones or powered speakers. 

As per Fiio... "The main difference between the previous K5 Pro and the K5 Pro ESS is that the new one employs the flagship portable ESS DAC, the ES9038Q2M with more outstanding performance and richer audio details. Compared to the last gen, the distortion has reduced by 50%, the crosstalk for LO has increased by 6dB with greater channel separation, and the dynamic range has increased by 3dB.

Most common application is usb from a computer or phone, out to headphones. Works great with iphone or android as a source. With 1.5 watt out at 32 ohm and Low/Med/High gain levels, K5Pro is a great match with planar headphones like Fostex t50rp /60rp, Hifiman he400 series, Sundara and almost any dynamic headphones, including Sennheiser HD600 series and Beyer 770/880/990 models.

Connect the Line Out to powered speakers, using the K5Pro as a dac, for improved sound quality. Does not have channel imbalance at low volumes. The built in dac decodes huge high res files and the volume control back-light changes colour to indicate the music bitrate.

** To connect to a computer or phone with usb-c, add the iFi OTG adaptor in the accessories section.
