We have the ultra compact Hi Sonus UFO Direct Stream Digital DAC available in Blue Coast Blue! This compact converter streams DSD plus high sample rate PCM audio (up to 32 bit 192kHz). There is a line output plus a dedicated headphone amp (max 600 ohms). You can use both outputs simultaneously.

The top of the unit is an ALPS high performance volume knob with an attractive LED light ring surrounding the knob, (hence the name "UFO"). The ring changes colors to indicate audio format and sample rate.
