xDuoo XD05 Balanced DAC / Amp

Portable, powerful, and equipped with a fully balanced output, the XD-05 Bal DAC/amp from xDuoo makes a comprehensive cornerstone to any audio setup. 

Handling conversion, dual ES9038Q2M DAC chips provide detailed sound with ultra-low distortion. 

Together with an XMOS XU208 USB chip, this hardware enables the XD-05 Bal to deliver Hi-Res signal decoding up to 32-bit / 768 kHz PCM and DSD512 natively. 

Connect wirelessly via Bluetooth 5.0 with support for aptX HD, aptX Low Latency, and LDAC codecs, or use the XD-05 Bal’s wide range of additional inputs, including USB-C. 

On the output side, a fully balanced 4.4-millimeter headphone jack delivers an impressive 1000 milliwatts of power at a 32-ohm load. 

There’s also a single-ended 6.35-millimeter output to suit additional setups. Use the two-way gain toggle, boost switch, OLED screen, and a wide range of digital filters to fine-tune your sound.

How the professional review saying about the XD05 Bal

Soundnews Review

It sounds considerably clearer, more transparent and more technical, having a better driver control, while retaining the same warm tonality xDuoo is known for. It was able to drive and control some of the hardest to drive headphones and it tamed the most sensitive IEMs, making it a universal device to be used with low and high-sensitivity loads.

Headfonia Review

The xDuoo XD-05 BAL is a brilliant DAC/AMP, taking advantage of all the features introduced in previous generations: versatile design, complete I/O, excellent sound. Add a mind-blowing bundle, excellent price/performance ratio, and the XD-05 BAL directly goes into my recommendation list, replacing the XD-05 Plus.
