SPL Audio Phonitor xe

The Phonitor xe is the ultimate standalone device for headphone enthusiasts who want the perfect solution without any compromises.

The Phonitor xe is the first Phonitor headphone amplifier which can be equipped with the brand-new DAC768.

This optional internal Uber-DAC qualifies the Phonitor xe to convert with outstanding sonic performance.
An audio resolution of 32 bits and PCM sample rates up to 768kHz as well as DSD – up to DSD256 – are the impressive numbers.

The analog side of the converter also is top-notch: Like in the Director DAC & Preamplifier. the active Lowpass-Filter is built in a 120V-Voltair-Technology design.

The mandatory lowpass filter is built in 120V-VOLTAiR technology. The DAC768 features the new DLP120 lowpass filter board that contains two separate lowpass filters. Depending on the digital format the analog signal runs either through the PCM or the DSD filter.
