Sony just released a $1000 Hi-Res DAC/Headphone Amplifier, which easily connects to your PC or compatible digital music device via USB for audiophile-grade music playback. The new Sony PHA-3 portable headphone DAC/amp, improves upon the PHA-2, offering higher resolution and L/R balanced outputs.

The Sony 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.

Sony’s new PHA-3 portable DAC/Headphone amplifier 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.

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.

Price and Availability
The Sony PHA-3 Portable DAC/Headphone Amplifier is available now for $999.99.
