DAC headphone amp
Codex is equally at home as a stand alone DAC, headphone amp, or digital preamp. The Codex can unlock the potential of any system. A fully-balanced signal path throughout the analog circuitry provides an inherently clean and quiet backdrop for your music. The zero-feedback design maintains all of the pace and rhythm of your favorite artist, rendering your digital music as effortlessly as if it were live.
I dont know if its due to the zero negative feedback design or the killer digital filters Charlie Hansen dreams up, but with file resolutions of PCM up to 32-384 and DSD128 the Codex is just plain musical. Cant wait to get one up here for a long hard listen. -Tyll Hertsens, innerfidelity.com
