ORB Jade 2 USB DAC - Headphone Amplifier

The new ORB Jade-2 is a superbly made DAC with a wealth of features and high specification to meet the demands of audiophiles and headphone audiophiles alike.

No matter if you use it as a stand alone DAC for your audio system, or connected to your Computer for use as a high-end headphone amplifier, the Jade-2 will meet your needs and then some!

Unlike many DAC manufacturers, ORB have taken a different path by not using the same old DAC chip seen in other DACs, instead they are relying on a Japanese made DAC chip from Asahi Kasei, and this chip can handle data rates up to 24bit/192kHz. Which means, the optical and coaxial inputs are 24bit/192kHz capable, and the USB port 24bit/96kHz.

Along with the digital inputs, there is a line level input to feed a legacy device into the headphone amplifier, and a headphone amplifier capable of driving 16Ω-600Ω headphones with ease.

Finally, the USB port on the front panel can be used to playback music files from a USB stick, with capacities reaching the sky these days, the ORB can be your only music source as well.
