Pioneer need little introduction to the world of high quality audio, having been a leading AV/home cinema, hifi, car audio and DJ equipment manufacturer for some time, claiming great success and exceptional feedback across all industries at a multitude of price points. The U-05 headphone amplifier/digital analogue converter sees the same superior standard of build quality and sonic reproduction capability that one would expect from any Pioneer product. 

The U-05 has been designed and engineered to offer the discerning audiophile a fully discrete headphone listening experience. This high quality USB DAC supports practically any connection type, ranging from traditional jack plugs to 3 (and even 4) pin Neutrik XLRs. The U-05 guarantees a high-quality listening experience, due to its fully balanced circuitry, jitter-destroying dual Sabre 8 DAC chipset.

The DAC itself is capable of decoding PCM signals and 2.8 MHz and 5.6 MHz DSD-files. With the Hi-Bit 32 function you can up-scale 16- and 24-bit signals to 32-bit quality, while the up-sampling function raises the frequency up to 384 kHz.
