ESS ES9038PRO 32-Bit HyperStream II Audio DAC

Using the critically acclaimed ESS’ patented HyperStream II architecture and time domain jitter eliminator, the ES9038PRO 32-bit audio dac delivers an unprecedented DNR of up to 140dB and THD+N of –122dB.

High Performance Asynchronous USB

The USB asynchronous transfer mode uses the high precision clock and precision power supply inside the Lotus DAC5 and by bypassing the poor computer's clock, MQA, DSD and Hi-Res signals can be performed again. 

Ultralow Noise,Ultrahigh PSRR RF Linear Regulator

LT3042 is a ultralow RMS noise, ultralow spot noise and ultrahigh PSRR linear regulator, It offers high quality voltage supplies that greatly enhance the performance of the ES9038PRO.

Precision Thin Film MELF Resistors

Precision thin film MELF resistors are the perfect choice for most fields of modern professional electronics, which reliability and stability are the main reasons why we use it.

High Quality, High Performance Capacitor

Electrolytic capacitors manufactured by Panasonic Japan, The features of high ripple current and low ESR make the power more clean and sound better.

The Remote Control

High-quality aluminum remote control allows users to operate easily, all adjustments in the SETUP menu can be controlled, you just sit back on your sofa and enjoy the music.

Front Panel Display

The display shows the current status of the input, contains the channel name, volume and sample rate. and can adjust the display brightness according to the environment or directly switch off the display to get the best listening performance.
