It is capable of decoding sample rates ranging from 44.1kHz to 384kHz as well as native DSD decoding ranging from DSD 64 up to DSD 256, making it the most capable USB-powered portable DAC on the market today. It provides the listener with truly full-range sound with commanding bass and an impressive full-frequency response. The improvement in sound quality is easy to hear. The mDSD is so power efficient that it can be driven by smart phones (Android, iPhone) and tablets directly. It is a truly convenient and versatile device to offer a better sound quality from your mobile devices and computers.
The ENCORE mDSD is compatible with a wide range of devices -- Apple computers and iOS devices, including iPhones and iPads, all PCs and many Android devices. Many low cost portable DACs can only decode up to 24-bit/96kHz and do not support DSD decoding. If you've only listened to music through your existing computer sound card or the built-in DAC in your iOS or Android device, you will find this USB powered external DAC an unmistakable improvement in sound quality. If you have an older external DAC that can only decode 24-bit/96kHz PCM, the ENCORE mDSD will allow you to hear and feel more of your favorite music. The superior sound will provide a definite upgrade to your listening experience.
