New! e38 Mark II
exaSound has just released Mark II upgrade of the 8-channel e38 DAC

What's New:

  • World's highest performance Sabre ES9038PRO DAC chip increases 4 times the internal paralleled DAC channels compared to the ES9028PRO to bring more presence in the midrange
  • Redesigned reference voltage sources and master clock power circuits deliver more precise 3D imaging and more natural portrayal of transients
  • Refined analogue output stages built with components with superb linearity and enhanced power lines offer lower noise and distortion levels, improves micro dynamics and base reproduction
  • Redesigned main board topology offers reduced EM interference and reduced channel crosstalk resulting in better detail and resolution
e38 DAC Overview

The e38 Mark II 8-channel DAC is a fifthgeneration DSD256 DAC. Built around the ES9038PRO monolithic DAC chip from ESS Technologies, the e38 has vanishingly low distortion and noise levels, and astonishingly clean analog-like sound. The e38 Mark II offers a high power, high performance headphone amplifier and ultimate resolution volume control.

The e38 DAC is an A+ Stereophile Recommended Component for Fall 2018 in the Digital Processor category. This recognition comes after its predecessor e28 – the world’s first multichannel DSD256 DAC was included in the Stereophile Recommended A+ list for three years in a row.
