Clarus - CODA - USB-DAC With Headphone Amplifier

Introducing the Clarus CODA: The Finest Portable USB-DAC Available!

A “Coda” is defined as a concluding musical passage that brings a sense of completeness to the music. The Clarus CODA is an ultra-high performance USB-DAC amplifier designed to be used with smartphone, tablet or computer. A DAC converts a digital audio signal to analog audio and the amplifier sends the signal to your headphones or your home audio system. The problem with computers and mobile devices is they don’t typically have very good DACs and the amplifiers are usually too weak to drive high performance headphones leaving audio dull and dampened. The CODA by-passes the internal DAC/AMP and delivers audiophile quality sound that has more detail,greater dynamics with ultra-low distortion and provides a bigger sound stage that essentially brings a sense of completeness to your music.

The Clarus CODA is an Ultra-High Performance USB-DAC / Headphone Amplifier that includes an MQA renderer. The CODA features the latest in USA-DAC technology that provides ultra-low distortion, more detail, greater dynamics and bigger sound stage. Designed to be used with a smartphone, tablet or computer, the CODA is compatible with Android, iOS, MacOS and Windows 7-10. The CODA will deliver higher than CD quality while listening to your favorite download or streaming Amazon Music, Spotify or Apple Music. When paired with an MQA Core Decoder (streaming with Tidal, Nugs and Xiami or when used with media players, Audirvana and Roon): the CODA’s renderer delivers the full MQA experience, letting you hear what the artist and the music producer heard during the original performance. The CODA features a mini stereo input and an USB-A output with a two-button volume control and a choice of three roll-off filters.

MQA stands for Master Quality Authenticated. MQA is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original recording. Traditional encoding discards music information to reduce size. MQA is fully authenticated in the studio and then folds the music file small enough to stream or download. MQA calls this folding “Music Origami”. When the CODA is paired with a MQA Code Decoder (available streaming with Tidal, Nugs and Xiami or when used with media players like Audirvana and Roon); the CODA’s renderer will automatically detect the MQA stream and engage the rendering process to complete the final unfold unlocking the full studio experience.

The heart of the Clarus CODA is a new legendary ESS Professional Series SABRE® DAC audio converter with Hyperstream® II modulation. The new SABRE® DAC provides previously unheard sound stage and clarity. QUAD DACTM Technology delivers superb 120dB SNR and -112dB THD+N for the ultimate in sound quality with a stable sound field. The low-power USB controller supports USB 1.1 and 2.0 and can natively handle 32-bit 384 kHz PCM and DSD up to 5.6MHz. The CODA has tight power supply regulation using a multi-stage, low noise, high ripple rejection CMOS based regulator, while a high-precision audio grade clock reduces jitter. The CODA’s class G headphone amplifier provides class AB performance with ultra-low power consumption optimized for mobile use. The 2.0Vrms output voltage will provide plenty of power for the most demanding headphones and class G ensures it won’t drain your battery.
