    Monolith Portable Headphone Amplifier and DAC with THX AAA Technology

    THX AAA Technology: Infinitesimally low levels of distortion, noise, and power consumption deliver an audio lover’s dream. Every conventional amplifier distorts sound significantly when driving current into a headphone, producing crossover distortion and noise that reminds us we’re listening to an artificial experience. THX engineers set out to solve this problem, bringing to life a new low distortion, low power consumption amplifier topology – THX AAA.

    AKM 4490EQ DAC: The AK4490EQ is a new generation 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.

    How the heck do they expect anyone to purchase this when they aren't publishing any specs? Where's the THD, S/N ratio, power output, file formats supported, etc?
