Fiio K9 THX dac headphone amp. New for 2023, K9 uses very similar headphone amp, preamp & connectivity from the awesome K9 Pro, with the dacs changed to more power efficient dual ESS 9068AS dac chips, as well as the removal of the secondary side usb-c input. Fiio K9 is an outstanding dac to use in a stereo, as a dac/headphone amp with headphones or as a dac/preamp out to powered speakers.
