AKM AK4396A Digital to Analog Converter

The B1 Bluetooth Receiver utilizes the AKM AK4396 DAC for low noise and high-fidelity. The B1 functions as an upsampling 24-bit Bluetooth DAC and will pad all bit depths internally to 24-bits, thus achieving a higher signal-to-noise ratio. Due to the AK4396A's high signal-to-noise specs, 24-bit digital signal upsampling, and the added benefit of triple redundancy power source conversion and filtering, the B1 showcases low noise and low distortion characteristics with a noticeable improvement over typical Bluetooth devices.

High-Quality Bluetooth Audio

The B1 features aptX HD coding, which produces high-quality sound quality when used with compatible Bluetooth devices. The B1 is backwards-compatible with all previous Bluetooth implementations, so you can wirelessly stream music from any Bluetooth-enabled device.

Optical Output

The B1 also functions as a wireless audio bridge from your device to your favorite DAC or preamp. Use the internal DAC with RCA analog outputs or connect the optical output into another DAC.
