With DX320MAX as a Blueprint, a Superb Flagship Dongle Emerges

In addition to the DX320MAX's ROHM BD34301EKV DAC chip, a 24 position 4 section stepped attenuator, current output DAC architecture, titanium exterior, and numerous cutting-edge technologies and materials, the CD-Elite exemplifies the MAX standard.

Flagship Current Output DAC Chip: ROHM BD34391EKV

A flagship current output DAC chip is being used tor the first time in a dongle with the DC-Elite, achieving a historic milestone. The BD34391EKV DAC by ROHM, along with meticulously engineered circuitry, improves the dynamic range, widens the soundstage, and boosts the high-fidelity audio capabilities of DC-Elite.

24 Position 4 Section Stepped Attenuator

iBasso completely revamped the traditional 24 position, 4 section stepped attenuator by compressing the volume to one-tenth the size of the original attenuator, while ensuring that the channel imbalance tolerance is below 0.1dB.

iBasso has pioneered the use of this attenuator specially built for DX320MAX on the DC-Elite. Say goodbye to bit reduction issues in digital volume adjustment. At normal volume with a 32Ω load, DC-Elite's SNR leads the way in dongle products.

iBasso DC-Elite Highlight With IEMs

Complete Flagship Player Structure

The DC-Elite adopts FPGA->DAC->I/V->LPF->VOL->AMP complete player architecture. Equipped with 6 dual OPAMPs and developed around the flagship BD34301EKV DAC chip, this compact device delivers exceptional playback performance. The DC-Elite's structure sets it apart from the competition. It pushes the boundaries of design and achieves a significant advancement in sound quality , demonstrating an unparalleled level of innovation and excellence.

In-House Developed FPGA with NKD fs Oscillator

The DC-Elite takes advantage of our in-house developed FPGA algorithm. Attaining an exceptionally low level of jitter is made possible by utilizing the NDK femtosecond oscillator, which leads to minimal distortion and a significant improvement in the quality of the musical sound.

Luxurious Titanium Alloy Shell with Superb Finish

DC-Elite is made of aero space grade titanium alloy to create an exquisite shell and paired with tempered glass on the top and bottom panels, bringing an unparalleled sense of elegance. Titanium has the best strength-to-weight ratio among all metals, being lighter than stainless steel and stronger than aluminum alloys.

My favorite dongle DAC! 🔥

I own several dongle DAC's but none of them can touch the DC-Elite and the IFi Kensei. The DC-Elite sounds fantastic and has plenty of power to drive my Arya Organic, MDR-Z1R, and GoldPlanar GL30. If you want mid-tier DAP sound at a fraction of the price, give this little bad boy a try. I doubt you'll be disappointed. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
