ZuperDAC Pro and ZuperDAC  Max are the 3rd generation designs in our ZuperDAC family. They inherit the same design philosophy to achieve the highest audio performance in the smallest form factor. ZHowever, don't be fooled by their sizes, they support Hi-Res Lossless audio like nothing else. ZuperDAC Pro supports 3.5mm single-ended audio output whereas ZuperDAC Max supports either 3.5mm single-ended or 4.4mm balanced audio output.

They also have built-in MQA Renderer so you can enjoy your Tidal Master contents with full MQA decode. They are so tiny that you can carry around and instantly turns your smartphone into a true HiFi digital audio player.

ZuperDAC Pro supports one single-ended 3.5mm audio output. It has an autodetect circuity upon your headphone insertion to determine the proper output voltage level to suit your headhpone loading requirements. ZuperDAC Max supports either single-ended 3.5mm or balanced 4.4mm audio output. There is a boost button for you to select the different audio output level to fit your headphone loading needs. The balanced output eliminate all unwanted noise in the output path with exceptional clarity.

Both products come with bundled USB-C cable and USB-A adapter so you can connect easily to your smartphone or PC/Mac. For iPhone/iPad with lightning interface, you can use our lightning cable (sold separately) for iPhone/iPad connectivity. With its USB Audio Class 2 high speed compliance, it works on all popular OS platform like iOS, Android, Linux, macOS and Windows 10/11. You can connect the audio output directly to your headphone or HiFi system.
 

Both products are based on a minimalist design pattern, simple and elegant. The black aluminum chassis provide strong protection with a matte smooth finish. We keep the use of LED status useful enough and not to be annoying, blue for standard definition audio or idle, red for high definition audio and magenta for MQA content. There is also a green LED indicator at ZuperDAC Max to indicate boost mode.
