xDuoo Link2 Bal (Link 2 Bal) DAC Headphone Amp


Dang it.

Unfortunately, this product has reached its end of life. Thankfully, we have an excellent replacement in the xDuoo Link2 Bal Max portable DAC/Amp.

From desktop to destination

The xDuoo Link2 Bal (Link 2 Bal) is a DAC/Amp you can take anywhere, whether that's a desktop or an exotic destination. Its true balance design puts out loads of power while keeping crosstalk and noise as low as a dedicated desktop rig. With a USB Type-C port, it can be used with next-gen tablets and the Nintendo Switch. 

Music, movies, gaming, and more

Listen to hi-res music from a laptop, take movie night to the next level with hi-fi sound, or up the Nintendo Switch’s audio game. The Link2 Bal’s USB Type-C port has you covered in every situation. 

Be sure of your sound

The Link2 Bal’s LED light will change colors with the sample rate of the song: red for CD-quality PCM, blue for super-CD quality PCM, and green for DSD.
