TOPPING E30 DAC (Digital-to-Analog-Converter)


Dang it.

We hate being the bearers of bad news, but the TOPPING E30 has reached its end of life. We think you might enjoy the TOPPING E30 II DAC instead.

The TOPPING E30 DAC is equipped with the AK4493EQ D/A chip and the XMOS interface controlling the USB inputs. The AK4493 chip provides better distortion and S/N ratio while having increasingly accurate digital filters for sound. The E30 measures well above its price point with less than -130dB crosstalk, dynamic range of 119dB, S/N ratio of 121dB, and a distortion rate that is as low as 0.0003%.

The E30 comes with an OLED display on the front. On the rear it has USB-B, optical, and coaxial inputs along with RCA outputs. With low energy requirements, the E30 can be powered directly from the USB port, but it also comes with a DC jack to provide the DAC with a cleaner power supply. Finally, it also includes a remote control so that you can control the DAC with ease.

Amir’s “hitting it out of the park” review for the  TOPPING E30 DAC can be found on Audio Science Review where he mentions that “I am happy to add Topping E30 to my recommended desktop DACs.”
