Balanced on a budget

The D10 Balanced is a balanced upgrade of the D10s. It features balanced only output, upgraded specs, and 32-bit/384kHz playback. If you’ve been waiting for a balanced DAC that won’t shatter the piggy bank, this is it. 

Outspecs the D10s

With balanced audio comes better specs. The D10 Balanced outspecs its predecessor in THD+N, SNR, dynamic range, output level, noise, and crosstalk. 

Strike a balance

The D10 Balanced features balanced output via a balanced TRS line out. Run balanced TRS cables or XLR cables by using the included adaptors and connect a balanced amplifier or active speakers. 

Hear more

Get reacquainted with your favorite artists by listening to higher bit-depth and sample rate versions of their music. The D10 Balanced features an ESS ES9038Q2M SABRE DAC chip that supports up to 32-bit/384kHz and DSD256 Native, making it an ideal decoder for lossless libraries and hi-definition streaming services like Amazon HD, Apple HD, and Tidal. 

Kiss stereo hiss goodbye

With 125dB of signal-to-noise ratio, the D10 Balanced would have to be cranked louder than an ambulance siren before passing along hiss or noise to your headphones or speakers.

Analog and digital outputs double the use-cases

Connect the D10 Balanced to a balanced headphone amplifier or bypass the amp all together and connect the D10 Balanced directly to a pair of active speakers. 

Plug and play 

You’ll love the D10 Balanced whether you’re a Mac, Windows, or Linux user. It can be plugged and played with Windows (above 10), Mac, and Linux. It also supports professional ASIO applications (only Windows ASIO applications require a driver).
