Astell&Kern has once again exhibited its strengths in industrial design, digital-to-analogue conversion and amplifier circuits. With the USB-C Dual DAC Amplifier Cable, the South Korean audio brand has provided a solution for Android, Windows, and macOS, which significantly improves the overall quality of the audio output of one's smartphone, laptops or desktops.

Coupled with its compact and aesthetically pleasing design, the USB-C Dual DAC Amplifier Cable is not a DAP replacement but an excellent alternative if one desires better audio playback from existing source devices.
