You can now buy the xDuoo TA-22 DAC/Tube amp on Apos Audio. At $489, it’s at the higher end of xDuoo’s offerings, but it’s also one of their most feature-rich units to date.
The TA-22 is a desktop DAC and balanced tube headphone amplifier that provides high performance USB, optical, coaxial, and Bluetooth 5.1 audio decoding. Combining an XMOS XU208 USB chip and dual ESS ES9038Q2M D/A chips, the TA-22 supports PCM 32-bit/384kHz and DSD256, as well as MQA rendering.
When it comes to amplification, the TA-22 offers up to 3000mW of balanced output, making it more than capable of driving high-impedance headphones.
Thanks to its Qualcomm Bluetooth 5.1 chip, it decodes codecs like LDAC, Qualcomm aptX, and aptX HD. With playback support for 24-bit tracks and transmission up to 50 feet away, it’ll help you cut cords without sacrificing quality.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about the TA-22 is its hybrid amp structure. Using a hybrid amp structure, it offers the best of both tube and transistor worlds. With strong output power, the transistors can drive any sort of headphone, while dual 12AU7 tube amplification provides musicality, warmth, and smoothness.
