HERUS is our smallest form-factor, audiophile quality USB to Headphone DAC. It uses the USB Audio 2.0 Asynchronous protocol and supports DSD64 and DSD128 as well as high data rate PCM at 24bits up to 352.8Ks/S. It is a USB powered device that achieves more than 100dB of SNR, (typically 108dB) and is capable of driving 2.4V RMS, (ie 6.8V pk-to-pk) into headphones from 600 Ohms to 32 Ohms.
"Overall I was very impressed with the Herus. If you’re looking for an all-in-one workplace or on the go USB DAC/amplifier combination, it’s hard to think of any other I could recommend (especially at this price point of $350). The ability to play everything from 44.1kHz files right up to 352.8kHz monster files and from PCM to DSD 64/128, is a feat unto itself. Add the built-in headphone amplifier that performed admirably with my finicky Sennheiser HD800s, I have no problems recommending this little wonder. It offers a clean and transparent sound that can only be achieved from larger and much more expensive products. The added bonus of the Herus working with my iPad Air and iPhone 6 put it over the top for me as not only is it a desktop USB DAC, but can also serve you as a portable DAC/amp for your Android or Apple devices. Resonessence Labs has really knocked it out of the park with the Herus." — Headphone.Guru
