Unless I'm missing something, the Cayin C5 is NOT a DAC/Amp. It's ONLY a headphone amp. Here's the link to it on the Cayin website - http://en.cayin.cn/products_info?itemid=77 And here is a review of it on headfonics.com - http://headfonics.com/2014/09/the-c5-portable-headphone-amp-by-cayin/3/

This is the model with the inbuilt DAC. The link you're looking for is here: http://en.cayin.cn/products_info?itemid=76.

You're right. My bad. It's on the Cayin website too. Sorry for the confusion ( on my part).

Yeah, but does it work? I have an iMac and it works fine with Tidal and the Explorer2. When I connect the C5, Audio Midi sees the C5 but preferences offers ext Speaker and USB spoof interface. Neither play Tidal. Any advice.

It works for me on Windows 10, but I don't have a Mac to play around with so I can't quite assist you there.
That being said, my unit doesn't work as a portable battery/charger at all.
Maybe somebody out there can help you?

Thanks for the links. The older amp only model has Output Power: 800m W+800m W (32Ω) THD:≤0.003% (1kHz) But this new dac/amp has Output Power: 300mW W+300mW (32Ω ) THD:≤0.02% (1kHz I wonder why?
