Lotoo PAW S1

The Lotoo PAW S1 is a light and compact portable headphone amplifier with a built-in USB-DAC and is suitable for use with Windows, Mac, Android and iOS. This PAW S1 headphone amplifier-DAC is intended for use with a smartphone that lacks a conventional headphone jack. Connect this PAW S1 to your phone, tablet or laptop and experience music in a sound quality that previously seemed impossible in this price range.

The low/high gain setting makes this headphone amplifier a great match for a wider range of headphones and is even suitable to be used with active speakers or a Hi-Fi system as a great sounding preamplifier-DAC. The output is 70mW per channel at 32Ohms (balanced: 120mW). For the best possible connectivity, a short USB Type C to C cable and a USB Type C to A adapter are factory included.

Functionality

The headphone amplifier is fitted with a discrete but clear OLED display that shows resolution, volume, gain settings and the chosen preset. The most unique feature of this Lotoo headphone amplifier is the additional 4.4mm Pentaconn jack to even drive headphones with balanced cabling. In its class, this Lotoo PAW S1 is the only headphone amplifier equipped with this feature. AKM provided the built-in DAC that is capable of playing music streams up to DSD128 and 32bit 384KHz PCM.

Adapts to your taste

Three buttons are conveniently placed on the side of the unit. The function button allows you to easily adjust the settings and two volume buttons control the master volume. Depending on the type of use, you can choose a matching sound preset. This S1 has no less than 16 different sound settings; classic, pop, rock, techno, dance, headphone, jazz, full bass, far field, near field, dental, sweet, brighter, radio, game and movie. If you don't want this, you can easily turn it off.
