Sony’s new PHA-3 portable DAC/Headphone amplifier (￥81,700Prices are approximate only and subject to change.
White Rabbit Express service fee and other costs not included.) lets consumers enjoy their favorite Hi-Res digital music in a whole new way. It utilizes balanced audio outputs with dedicated left and right channels to deliver an optimized listening experience. Plus using ESS Technology, Inc. ES9018 D/A converter the PHA-3 offers outstanding audio performance of dynamic range.
Whether at home or on-the-go, the PHA-3 can decode virtually any PCM (up to 384 kHz/32bit) or DSD (up to 5.6MHz) audio source, for maximum flexibility. You can also use Sony’s exclusive DSEE HX™ technology to up-scale low resolution audio sources (MP3, AAC, ATRAC, and WMA) to achieve higher music quality.
Flexible connectivity maximizes the personal audio experience no matter the input source – smartphone, portable audio player, PC or other analog devices. The PHA-3 uses durable materials: compact aluminum to enclose the delicate circuitry from internal or external interference, front bumpers which protect the volume knob & headphone connectors from external impact, and recessed control switches which help to reduce the chance of accidental access during playback. The internal rechargeable battery provides approximately 5 hours of balanced audio playback when connected via USB, or up to 28 hours of playback when connected using the analog, 1/8″ stereo input.
