Meet the new EF600, a balanced desktop DAC/amplifier, which follows the EF400 desktop DAC/amp. The most exciting part is the new R2R Himalaya Pro DAC.

“The EF600 has the power and advanced technology to stand out from a field that too often relies on off-the-shelf technologies instead of incorporating technologies that are truly unique to the category,” says Dr. Fang Bian, President and CEO, HIFIMAN Electronics. “The Hymalaya Pro DAC module alone represents a giant leap forward from DACs that were considered state-of-the-art only a few short years ago.”

HIFIMAN’s Hymalaya Pro consists of an array of highly accurate resistors that use a “ladder” method of conversion. This approach converts the digital signal with maximum accuracy and overall musicality. The Hymalaya Pro supports up to 24-bit/768kHz PCM; there is no support for MQA or DSD.

Designed for use as a DAC, or independent headphone amplifier, the EF600 features an industrial design that is not only aesthetically appealing, it also serves as a headphone stand, reducing desktop clutter. Included are fully balanced input/output connections, high-resolution Bluetooth connectivity, an independent power supply and a thermal optimized tower case.
