    Monolith Portable Headphone Amplifier and DAC with THX AAA Technology

    The Monolith Portable Headphone DAC Amplifier features cutting edge THX AAA™ technology to bring out the best in your headphones, playback device, and music library. It utilizes the THX AAA-78 amplifier design for a massive 2x400 mW of crystal clear output power on-the-go with excellent battery life. It also features the new flagship AKM AK4493 32-bit stereo Premium DAC with VELVET SOUND™ technology, Dirac Sensaround II decoding for an expanded larger than life soundstage, and a host of balanced, unbalanced, and digital inputs and outputs to ensure users have plenty of ways to connect their playback devices for a high-quality listening experience.

    THX AAA™ Technology: Reduces harmonic, intermodulation, and crossover distortions by 20-100x for an unbelievably realistic and fatigue-free listening experience, and can reduce power consumption by a factor of 10 for incredibly long battery life. It accomplishes this using a patented topology to null conventional distortion mechanisms and reduce bias current.

    AKM 4493 DAC: The AKM AK4493 is the new flagship 32-bit stereo Premium DAC. Digital input supports PCM inputs up to 768kHz and DSD input of 2.8MHz/5.6MHz / maximum 11.2MHz the industry's highest level. Internal circuit employs a newly developed 32-bit Digital Filter for the ultimate in sound quality and musicality.

    Dirac Sensaround II: Music is usually mixed with loudspeakers in mind, not headphones. As a result, headphone listening is often plagued by a distorted soundstage—instruments and voices may seem incorrectly placed and trapped inside your head, causing an unnatural listening experience that can result in listener fatigue. Dirac Sensaround II takes a different approach. Listeners can enjoy their favorite media in a way that seems to spread instruments, voices and objects out into space, enveloping the listener exactly as the artist intended. Dirac Sensaround II creates a vast, clear and realistically immersive soundstage free from the constraints of the space in your ear, much like a multi-speaker home theater system. This feature can be toggled on or off.
