Fiio K7 THX Amp Dac. Fiio K7 is a new high power desktop dac amp with huge performance at a great value price. Balanced headphone amp with 4.4mm output, THX AAA 788+ amp technology along with dual dacs, the new ak4493seq chips. Fiio K7 features low / high gain so it will work well with earphones and headphones, analog input, usb, optical, coaxial digital inputs, 6.5mm SE and 4.4mm Balanced headphone outputs.
There is a multicolour light behind the volume dial, with blue / yellow / green indicating the file bitrate that is playing. Use a computer, phone or ipad as a source via usb. Given the price and performance of the Fiio K7, there is no need to look for separate dacs / amps at this price and the connectivity is thorough, providing plenty of options. You can even choose with a front toggle to have the rear outputs be a pre-out (volume controlled) or full line out (100% signal).
Fiio K7 is ideal for a quality affordable dac amp for headphones like HD600/660s, Hifiman Sundara, Edition XS, 250 ohms Beyers, the 300 ohm Sivga SV023, AKG headphones and even the Audeze LCD2c.

Fiio K7 Specs:
Used this to drop a DAC/amp/splitter setup I was using previously. I ended up with much cleaner sound, more power and the easy of a switch to go from my headphones to my speaker amp. As always headphone bar shipped quickly and everything showed up perfectly packaged. I'm not sure you can beat the sound quality and utility of this device without spending a fair bit more money.
I have a lot of headphone amplifiers. This one in particular is doing something amazing to my planar headphones. Very linear on my dynamic headphones and nothing to write home about. I have a few tube amps that can do amazing things with dynamic headphones. This thing has made my Fostex, Hifiman, MrSpeakers and my Audeze headphones sound alive in a most unusual way. It's like this amp has brought a new dimension to the sound of all these headphones. With this amp I just enjoy a new life on my old expensive planars. I do believe I will buy another!
