    KAO Audio UD-2C HP DAC with Headphone Amp

    It comes with all original packing and accessories except for the original blue IEC power cable (including a black one). Also included are 3 additional fuses for "fuse rolling". (No, I did not “fuse roll” but the previous owner did.)

    · 1W at 32ohms and 85mW at 600ohms

    · Dual DAC: The line out uses a Crystal CS4351 DAC, and the headphone gets a similar CS4350.

    · CS4350 feeds a differential voltage output straight to the TI TPA6120A2 chip for headphone amplification.

    Finish similar to early Massdrop stack CTH. Microfiber cloth wipes clean.
    LEDs are dim for volume touch control and works well.
    Nice small all-in-one.

    \/ So nice to see you CEE TEE, this is such a wonderful community!!
    I did not want to clutter your thread by posting - but it is nice to see the Kao again.
    I remember it being such an elegant AIO, and portraying vocals in a really captivating way.

    Just want to add (unnecessarily as CEE TEE is so well known here), CT is an teriffic person to buy/sell with and is really the most friendly and awesome person to interact with via pm.
