The latest fully balanced amplifier in the Aune series, the S7 offers a sleek, uncluttered aesthetic and plenty of power. It has a high rated output of 3,400 mW at 32 ohms and 450 mW at 300 ohms, making it an especially good pairing for high-impedance cans. Its fully balanced, ultra-low-distortion framework includes the highly regarded Titan Artemis amp circuit. And with two gain controls, it can drive most headphones and earphones on the market with ease. Meanwhile, the S6 is a balanced DAC/amp that uses the notable AK4495S DAC. It aims to be neutral in its presentation and has an impressive number of inputs and outputs. While the S6 can adequately power headphones from its balanced port, this unit is at its best when stacked with the S7 and used as the DAC in the setup, as the S7 is a significantly more powerful amplifier.
Note: At checkout, choose the the S6 balanced DAC/amp or the S7 balanced headphone amp (+$40) in black or silver and 110V or 220V.
Head-Fi member Hisoundfi says, "In terms of headphone driving performance, the S6 is pretty fabulous. There’s never been a time I’ve listened to the S6 and not walked away impressed (regardless of what earphones I use it with). The sound quality and powerful headphone amplifier (for a DAC) that is built in makes it a big winner in my opinion. For most people looking for a solid desktop setup, there’s not much more you’d need beyond this device, and if you did, we’re probably talking about spending a lot more."
