One of the main features of the Astell & Kern USB-C Dual DAC cable is its two cirrus logic CS43198 master HI-FI that supports DSD256 and also 32bit/384 kHz playback.

This allows the most premium and real-life audio experience from any device you’re listening to – be it from your computer or mobile devices.

It does so through a complex and highly integrated circuit chip mounted on a small, six-layer PCB at the size of 14 x 41 mm.
