Dang it.

This product has been discontinued. Luckily, we have a great alternative in the TOPPING DX7 Pro+.

Beautiful, benchmark

Gorgeous from every angle, the TOPPING DX5 DAC/Amp is a Red Dot Design award-winner and Golden Pin Design award-winner. Its dual ESS DAC chips and TOPPING’s best built-in NFCA amplifier are expertly tuned for benchmark performance: 0.00009% harmonic distortion.


With multiple high-end inputs, the DX5 is a “one for all” DAC/amp for your entire entertainment center. Connect a Macbook, PC, or other source via USB. Connect game consoles, phones, and players via Bluetooth or coaxial. Watch movies and TV via optical.

2x ES9068AS DAC chips 

Through careful engineering and attention to detail, TOPPING achieved incredible performance from the DX5’s dual ESS DAC chips. The THD+N is 0.00009%, the dynamic range is 128dB, and the noise is <2.0uVrms. 

LDAC 24bit/96kHz Bluetooth transmission 

The DX5 uses the latest QCC5125 Bluetooth chipset that supports LDAC, AAC, SBC, aptX, aptX LL, and aptX HD protocols. To achieve the greatest sound possible, the DX5’s Bluetooth input signal bypasses the QCC5125’s built-in DAC chip and gets decoded by the dual ESS chips. 

Built-in NFCA headphone amp 

The new DX5 uses an NFCA circuit that provides ultra-low noise and distortion. With 125dB SNR and 1800mW x2 @32Ω of output power, it pairs perfectly with high-sensitivity IEMs and high-impedance full-sized headphones.
