Description

Now, movies and games have never sounded better. The Xduoo XD-05 Basic takes audio to the next level for a realistic and exciting experience. It is packed with features that'll keep you up to watch just 'one more' episode or play 'just another' level.

Bring Home the Cinematic Experience
Turn your room into a cinema hall or professional gaming set-up with the Xduoo XD-05 Basic. This DAC/Amp plays high-quality video and game audio to take your experience to the next level. The professional digital and analogue circuits give you a surround sound effect on speakers as well as headphones. It is compatible with desktops, PS4, Xbox, tablets and other smart devices and gaming platforms.

Play High-Quality Audio Always
The Xduoo XD-05 Basic uses an ESS9018K2M DAC that supports a sample rate of up to PCM 32-bit/384kHz and up to DSD256 playback. The best part? This DAC/Amp can extensively optimise low bit-rate files to upgrade them to 48KHz/96KHz/192KHz with its SRC function.

Works with All Kinds of Headphones
Drive power-hungry headphones as well as sensitive IEMs with the OP+ClassA amplifier circuit. With its ability to drive headphones between 16Ω-600Ω, it's highly popular among audiophiles. To further optimise the audio playback, the output uses an on-demand system that reduces distortion and background noise even at high volumes. You can even replace the operational amplifier to tweak the sound quality.

Take Your Entertainment to the Next Level
The Xduoo XD-05 Basic offers 4 PCM digital recorders and 3 DSD digital filters to play different sound effects, including warmth, transparency and detail. The hardware-accelerated bass switch adds that necessary low-end delight that makes video games and movies sound all the more power-packed.

Designed for Binge-Watchers
While the Xduoo XD-05 Basic can be easily plugged into an external power supply like a USB charger or power bank, the built-in 3.7V/4000mAh battery runs for up to 9 hours on a single charge. The volume knob comes with a backlight that shows the battery status, even in dim light. The 0.91-inch OLED display shows other details, including the sampling rate, power, DAC filter status and input interface clearly.

A Unique Device At An Unbeatable Price

xDuoo devices have always been different from the herd and the XD-05 is no different. I simply love the fact that you can roll op-amps with this one! Aand it's real easy (multiple videos of YouTube). Right out of the box - switched the op-amp that comes with the device for a Burson v5i. And boy oh boy - this punches waaay above its price now. Both with headphones and with speaker amps. Also love the fact that the 3.5mm port can be used both as Line-In and Line-Out. Can't remember another device that can do this. And to have COAX and Optical support in such a form factor - wow! Overall - I don't think there is any other device that delivers so much performance and so many features at this price. Truly - a hidden gem.

A great multipurpose amp/dac for the beginner audiophile!

I'm in no way an expert audiophile component reviewer, but the XD05 is definitely one of the best amp/dacs I've used to date. I have a TempoTec Sonata HD but I feel that is an unfair comparison. This thing is miles ahead but yes, costs more than twice the cash too. I currently use this on my computer with my Tin Audio T2 Plus and my Sennheiser 599 SE. It sounds so deep and roomy it feels like I'm listening to them for the first time again! The only con I had with this is that there is no setting to switch power/usb connection to one port like a few other portable amp/dacs. Apart from that, stellar in every sense of the word.

I'd definitely urge anyone reading this who is also starting out on their journey to better audio like me to give this a look.

Finally, props to The Audio Store team - I was skeptical of the next-day delivery. But I did get it! Much quicker than their rivals in this space.

A great addition

Pros: A economical Amplifier +DAC with volume control
Cons: Bulky and get heated up

Power packed goodness!

I purchased this to pair with the Hifiman He400se. It powers it perfectly well.
Considering the 500mw @32ohm power rating, I would recommend this product to anyone looking for raw power in transportable unit.

Found my final DAC as of now!

First of all, a big thanks to theaudiostore.in guys, they are very helpful and I always get my shipment the next day, super fast shipping :) 🚀

I'd used Schiit multibit's ... yes two of them in a row. Those were just DACs with no headphone amp and no preamp and had only USB input. That was at an insane 25k price and I really found that overpriced in today's competition.

Then I bought Maverick Audio D2, which was my first Tube DAC and I was so impressed by the tube's signature. For the last 2 years, I've been using Fiio K3 and it's a great DAC..then I had my eyes on Xduoo XDO5 Basic and finally bought it, just because it's bundled with a lot of features and ample inputs for your source.

Wanted to go for the PLUS version but it seems like out of my budget and so I bought the BASIC variant finally :)

I found my money invested well. The DAC is a very sturdy build, solid RED knob worked for gain and on/off switch. The .91" OLED screen is super crisp that show you lots of live sample rate you are listening at, shows you the battery state and what input you are using.
At the back, it has USB in / optical in / aux in and line out for a lot of choices you can use.

It has ESS Sabre chip ES9018K2M which is slightly bright and ESS are known for little bright signature but that doesn't harsh to your ears, instrument separation is very good, has a deep bass.
Quite good wide sound stage. AMP is an added advantage for high impedance headphones like Beyerdynamics DT 990 Pro.

Has a 4000mAH lithium-polymer battery that gives you 9/12/16 hours of backup depending on what input you are using. Can be charged in 4 hours by a good adapter and take 11 hours when you charge it via PC.

Overall I really recommend this DAC..budget-friendly, good and wide sound stage, solid build :)

Solid Performer

I was on the lookout for a portable DAC/AMP for my phone and DAP; that I could carry around and use in my home as an alternative to my Schiit stack. Most of the promising performers like Hidizs S9 and Lotoo PAW; cost almost the same as XD-05 while offering lesser power and features. While I do not prioritize portability the most, XD-05 came through the foremost choice. It does justice to my K712 Pro and brings life to all of my IEMs.

The battery is solid, lasts a good day of constant usage. Overnight charging and good to go in the morning. Their 3 inputs, I used the Analog input the most; sadly the package doesn't include a 3.5 mm Jack to Jack; which otherwise is quite nice.

When connected to a PC, I could simultaneously charge and use it as DAC/AMP, which highlights the versatility of this device. The device can upsample audio files to a 48, 96 or 192 kHz; through the SRC button. I didn't find Filters to be game-changing and introduce very minor sonic nuances, I could detect when plugged to my full-sized headphone.

The front panel switches are very delicate looking but offer a good tactile feel when used. The bass boost only up-shelves frequency below 400 Hz, which is appreciated. The gain switches are having 3 modes, the first two offer not much gain while the 3rd one does a lot. The volume button is has a slight resistance to it, which is satisfying to use. The backlight is a nice touch and can be switched off.

No complaints whatsoever. This is much better than those USB DAC/AMPs which I originally intended to buy. Though this is not pocketable like the USB DAC/AMPs, it can be carried around in a bag and used in-flight/train. There are openings in the grill so I suggest carrying the device in a pouch/sleeve.

As for TheAudioStore, they packed the device well, and I received it within 72 hours of ordering. Kudos to the Team!
