Enjoy high-resolution audio

Along with all the sonic benefits the Explorer provides for your compressed and CD-quality music files, it also has another trick up its sleeve it decodes high-resolution data streams of up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution, so you can enjoy better-than-CD audio quality. (Free USB driver download required for Windows PCs. MACs work without any need for a sport driver) If you download high-res music files from HDtracks and other audiophile sources, this DAC ensures that you'll hear them in all their glory.

A 3.5mm hybrid jack provides line-level output that can feed an analog audio signal to a pair of powered speakers or your home hi-fi system using an optional stereo mini-to-mini cable or mini-to-RCA adapter, as well as S/PDIF mini optical output for connecting another processor or digital recorder.

A second minijack output is connected to the Explorer's built-in headphone amp
