S9 Review - Head-Fi(2)
02.20.2021 | Linnod | S9 Reviews

 

Pros: Relatively good high frequencies
Relatively small

Cons: No control buttons
Poor low and mid frequencies

The device comes in a black box with an iridescent embossing. On the front, the company logo flaunts, the name of the DAC - S9 - and the outline of the device. On the bottom you can see the characteristics. Inside the "whistle" is used DAC AK4493EQ, connector - USB C. There are two colors to choose from: black and white.

The set is quite rich. Inside we will find:
DAC itself
2 USB-C cables (one shorter, the other longer)
Clip case
Adapter USB-C to USB-A
Various waste paper

The device itself has a relatively small size, a steel frame and plastic (and very quickly smudged) front and back panels. On one end there is a type-c connector, on the other - 2.5mm (balance) and 3.5mm outputs. There are no buttons or other controls. In general, the device looks rather strict and sipaty. As for me, it will not be a shame to even wear such a jacket. By the way, the logo is highlighted (at night, I think it will be annoying).
