Elevating the Standard: The Third Generation D50 III

Introducing the latest evolution in the D50 line: the TOPPING D50 III Desktop DAC. This new generation brings significant enhancements over its predecessors, such as dual ES9039Q2M D/A chips, which deliver exceptional clarity and depth. The D50 III supports an impressive array of formats up to DSD 512 and PCM 768kHz, backed by hi-res certification for audiophile-grade sound. A novel I/V conversion circuit, LDAC capability for high-quality wireless audio, and dual Type-C connections make it a fully modern machine. With specs like THD+N less than 0.00006% and advanced PEQ adjustment, the D50 III exemplifies the continuous innovation of the illustrious D50 series.

Dual-core audio excellence

Dual ES9039Q2M D/A chips form the core of the D50 III. By dedicating a chip to each stereo channel, the DAC achieves higher SNR, dynamic range, and lower distortion, ensuring that every note is rendered with crystal-clear precision.

Circuitry that sings

The newly designed I/V conversion circuit in the D50 III pushes the boundaries of audio reproduction. Lower distortion, reduced noise, and compact design converge to deliver sound that's as close to the original recording as possible.

Shielded for silence 

The D50 III's engineering marvel is reflected in its CNC unibody construction—a single piece of aluminum precision-machined to perfection. This not only provides superior electromagnetic shielding but also adds a touch of elegance to its design.

Wireless freedom with LDAC

Embrace high-quality audio without the wires. The D50 III supports LDAC and other high-definition Bluetooth codecs, ensuring that your wireless listening experience doesn't compromise on sound quality.

Universal compatibility

With dual Type-C interfaces and support for a wide range of operating systems, the D50 III promises a seamless plug-and-play experience across devices. Whether you're using Windows, macOS, Linux, or mobile platforms, this DAC is ready to breathe new life into your library. 

Versatility in outputs

With both RCA and TRS balanced outputs, the D50 III caters to a variety of professional and personal audio setups. 

A preamplifier for your desk

Transform your desktop speaker setup with the D50 III's preamp mode. Adjust volume directly on the device for a streamlined audio experience with active speakers or power amplifiers.

Precision at your fingertips

Customize your sound with the D50 III's ten-band PEQ adjustment. The new desktop software and PEQ algorithm allow for intricate tuning, making your audio experience truly your own.
