Shanling UA5 portable dongle dac for phones, computers and ipads. UA5 is a dongle dac with a cool integrated volume dial, that also works as a multifunction controller. It also has a clear OLED display to clearly show features and battery life. UA5 uses dual ESS dacs and dual amps to supply its balanced output design. It allows you to choose single or dual dac modes and low/high gain modes.
UA5 has a new twist to improve its audio quality.With its 'Hybrid Battery Power design there is a small battery built in so the UA5 can run its amps and dacs from the clean battery power, with other sections having power supplied by the phone/computer. This is done to improve the audio performance. You can also select Standard mode, where the device will be powered solely from the phone/computer, as other dongle dacs are. Its a clever, compact way to push the performance ahead with a clean, black background and zero background noise for high end IEM's.
