Yulong Aquila II DAC/Amp


If you find yourself torn between the Yulong DA10’s bells and whistles and the Yulong Canary II’s price tag, you’ll be pleased to meet the Aquila II--a compromise in price but not in sound.

Jitter Eliminator

Jitter is this generation’s disc skip--it’s aggravating, intrusive, and could potentially ruin a listening experience. Okay, maybe it’s not as intrusive as disc skip, but it should be avoided at all costs. According to Headphonics, the Aquila II uses a JIC (Jitter and Interface Control) system--comprised of a FIFO buffer, Femtosecond oscillator, and PLL--to correct drift in the signal timing, making jitter a thing of the past.

Versatility Comes Standard

You can think of the Aquila II as the Canary’s II older, college-graduated brother. It’s smarter, bigger, and bursting with options. In addition to USB, coaxial, RCA, and optical inputs, the Aquila II accepts AES and S/PDIF inputs, as well as XLR, 4.4 and 6.35 headphone outputs. Yeah, this thing’s been around the block.

Rugged Good Looks

That one-piece aluminum alloy shell isn’t just for looks, you know. Neither are those metal feet (they absorb shock). This is a head-turning DAC/Amp that's built to stand the test of time.
