Description of Topping D10s USB DAC XU208 ES9038Q2M - HiFi Audio Decoder (Silver)

♫ TOPPING D10s USB DAC: Customized Thesycon driver + XMOS XU208 + ES9038Q2M + OP. ♫ Automatic power on/off: Even some USB port support power after PC has shut down, D10s still will synchronously power on /off with PC. ♫ Audio format andsampling rate indicator: D10s can accurately indicate the audio format(PCM or DSD) and sampling rate of the playing music. Orange LED is soft and not dazzling even at night. ♫ OP-AMP Rolling, D10s has OP amp socket, Diyer could change the OP amp to get different sound. ♫ Multiple connections: D10s could connect with your active speakers. It could connect to power/headphone amp. If you have a better DAC , you can connect the coaxial /optical output of D10s to your DAC , then D10s serves as a USB interface .

Good DAC for old stereo

I use it with an old phone and an old stereo to listen to various streaming services. It brings the old stereo into the modern age.

The price of money. Suitable for receivers and amplifiers

Value for money, the sound is very warm, similar. No MQS, but at this price. It is in order. High-quality sound up to 192 kHz. A good starter purchase, on par with the Schiit'3 product.

Excellent in every way

Phenomenal DAC. Connect the laptop to D10s USB, the digital output to the car DSP, then to the amplifier and finally to the speakers. I find the display of the current bit rate very neat and excellent for flex.10/10, I was not disappointed.

  • Nice packaging
  • unreliable

Exceeding D10s. Excellent DAC. Worth every dollar.

Build quality and overall appearance surpasses much more expensive DACs. I would recommend the Topping D10 to anyone looking to boost their digital library. The soundstage and presentation are amazingly reproduced.

  • Excellent fit for me
  • Crumpled packaging

Damn great DA converter.

This thing sounds amazing (can't hear it at all) and does exactly what I need it to do. I use it to extract audio from PCM and provide TosLink to DSP. It runs over USB for both signal and power and is really easy to integrate. Good product!

  • Absolutely amazing!
  • I vaguely remember

Great sound at a great price

I bought my first one to hook up a headless Plex server to my old school Bryston/Accuton stereo. The sound quality is better than the much more expensive EAD DAC it replaces. I liked it so much that I bought a second one for my office system. It powers a pair of KRK Rokit 5 G4s. Huge improvement over the audio output from my computer.

  • nice touch
  • New Competitors

Best value for money

If you don't need any other inputs for your DAC besides USB then this is a bargain compared to the Topping E30 (which is also very good). Combined with a good amp like the L30 and a few good cans, the thing shines. Very clear sound from all angles, just make sure you change your windows audio quality settings to reflect the 32-bit 384kHz capability of this device.

  • Great design
  • Interchangeable
