CODA USB DAC with Headphone Amplifier

Adding to its selection of cabling and power products, Clarus Cable has announced its CODA USB DAC with Headphone Amplifier.

Clarus Cable, founded by Tributaries‘ Joe Perfito, is a brand that designs high-performance AV products, and its new USB DAC and amp is designed for use with smart devices.

Developed with a wide range of users in mind, the CODA USB DAC with Headphone Amplifier incorporates a two-button volume control and a choice of three roll-off filters.

The Florida-based company states the foundation of the portable DAC and amp is a ESS Professional Series DAC (digital to analog converter) audio converter with Hyperstream II modulation. The product’s QUAD DAC technology helps the CODA to produce 124 DNR and -112 THD+N.

Clarus emphasizes the USB DAC and amp supports USB 1.1 and USB 2.0, and it can natively handle formats up to 32-bit/384kHz PCM, and DSD up to 5.6MHz.

The CODA USB DAC and Headphone Amplifier is also designed to drive a range of headphones, and it complement smart devices’ batteries through its 2.0Vrms output voltage and Class G headphone amp.

Other features include an LED indicator that lights up in different colors to signal different sample rates. Blue is for standard definition, green is for high-definition, and magenta indicates MQA content.

In addition, the CODA’s software is upgradeable.
