Cayin N5ii

1   |  

Cayin N5ii DAP is a new 2018 portable high res music player. The N5ii provides excellent sound quality for the money, perfect for people with their own large music collections. 

Based on android 5.1, using a heavily modified music app, it also has google play access and wifi, so you can use streaming apps. N5ii uses usb-c to connect as a usb-dac, can support high res up to DSD256 files, has a strong 2v line out (just like a full size component)  and usb out, to go out to a home system.

Built around an ESS 9018 dac & amp sections for both balanced 2.5mm out and regular 3.5mm out, with L/M/H gain, it will have little to no hiss with high sensitivity earphones and provide strong output for most full size headphones. 

Very in depth reviews at and 

*FYI: you can store music from Spotify for offline playback on a card, or Tidal to local storage* - Best value DAP of 2017: The best value DAP to no surprise is the full Android Cayin N5ii. The second revision of the N5 DAP is fully customizable, extremely versatile, perfectly built and it sounds incredible for its price. How could it not get an award?

Grat DAP

This is a great sounding and beautifully crafted DAP. The android UI take some time to get accustomed to, but it is OK. The sound is amazing: clear and detailed. For the price is perfect.
