This is a desktop stationery combine for use with headphones or speakers and for sure one of the best dacs under 200$. It supports all audio formats, in the resolution of PCM 32/768 and DSD. The DX3 Pro runs on two AK4493, which easily supports the DSD512. Especially since the combine produces 1000 mWx2/32Ω or 125 mWx2/300Ω at the headphone output.

It also has nice stuffing. In addition to two AK4493 chips, the DAC is equipped with OPA1612 operational amplifiers and an XMOS U208 USB interface. This model offers, above all, an output signal of 600 mV at a load of 2 kОhms, so it can drive most modern headphones.
