T20U Amplifier / DAC

KingRex T20U Tripath Amplifier / USB DAC

Considering the price of this beautifully designed and machined DAC/Amp, you'd be mad to buy a soundcard for your computer. Initially, just add a £1.99 USB lead and speakers for a musical experience so much more satisfying than a PCI card and the boom-tizz sat/sub monstrosities that have too long blighted our desktops.

Measuring about the size of a hardback book, this lovingly crafted and compact convergent device delivers mellifluous musicality even in its 'base' specification, with a sound quality more akin to classic tube amplifiers than shrill transistors. However, to hear what it's really capable of, the first substantial upgrade to consider is the KingRex PSU which adds weight and authority to the bottom end and dramatically enlarges the soundstage, without compromising any of its delicacy of touch. A similar step up in terms of dynamics and resolution is afforded by adding one of the matching preamps.

All the components used in T20 & T20U are of the highest quality and have been selected through intensive listening sessions – from the PCB itself to the high quality chassis and anodized gold RCA and SP terminals.
