    Cayin C9Cayin C9

    Cayin C9

    Cayin Audio's famed amplification packs up to join you back on the road with the launch of C9, featuring 4.4mm and 3.5mm inputs and outputs. Headfonics praise it to the roof as it "revitalises tubes on the go, a traditional niche in our hobby that seems to be forgotten", going on to name it Best Portable Amp of 2021. This battery-powered, tube and solid-state hybrid lands in time for use on your office desks and in hotel rooms, establishing your reference headphone listening anywhere you so choose. [See Product Desc. For More] C9 is a fully-balanced, truly differential amplifier built upon the essentials establishing a device as basically thoroughly engineered. READ ALSO The full blow-by-blow story of C9's technical innovations A high operating voltage of more than eight volts and a reliance on discrete parts for over 90 per cent of the design means C9 is not only capable of putting out over 4 watts per channel, but also ensuring it is the cleanest, most linear kind of signal possible. Achieving 125dB of signal-to-noise ratio would not have been otherwise possible in a discrete design, with all the benefits that brings, without exacting layout. The input section exists on the popular Nutube. C9's dual timbre circuit revolves around two of Korg's fluorescent triodes or toggled solid-state FETs, the philosophical transistor alternative. READ ALSO C9 blurs the line with desktop amplifiers The delicate input signal is then passed to a discrete solid-state output stage that can be switched between working in pure Class A mode or Class AB. Built with individual transistors of Cayin's choosing allows great control over tuning and an innately linear open-loop circuit, with minimal negative feedback, to be fashioned, while producing genuine current for demanding headphone loads. C9 is a brute in ballet shoes, confirmed by the big volume pot controlling dual precise MUSES resistor ladder attenuator parts occurring after the driver stage, kept far from the input signal for maximum integrity.  Line outputs from Cayin's own N6II/E02, HiBy Music's New R6 plus R2R RS6, and iBasso Audio's DX240 will never be better pampered than via C9. Use it in a mobile stack acting as the platform for Hedd's HEDDphone® – absolutely recommended, says Ear Fidelity – MYSPHERE 3.2, Rosson Audio Designs, plus any ABYSS or HiFiMAN, to shine. "And while DAPs come and go", Twister6 believes "C9 should last you a while to enhance any source you pair it up with". Headfonia say it "should really be the first amp to look at to get four completely different sound signatures that's simply impressive".

    Cayin HA-6A

    Another Cayin Audio amplifier that promises infinite variety. From the box, HA-6A lets you roll between included pairs of EL34 and KT88 power tube variants. This mid-tier amplifier with the top-tier sound gets praised by John Grandberg on Darko.Audio for its multiple flavours and way of excelling with all of them. In a direct shoot-out, one pundit gave HA-6A the upper hand over the previous usual suspect in class, Woo Audio's WA22. [See Product Desc. For More] HA-6A has the ability to dump up to 4.5 watts per channel of pure Class A power into your cans, but that's just the beginning of the story. Large EI core output transformers built in-house to Cayin's spec means it's not just brute force but also finesse ensuring great, clean frequency extension at the bass and treble extremes – otherwise a weak point in other tube amplifiers. Meanwhile, a loosely wound EI core power transformer ensures greater AC line performance over a conventional toroid, avoiding saturation plus the negative impacts caused by the latter's high magnetic flux. Running EL34s or KT88s in either triode or ultra-linear mode yields multiple pairings. Swap to taste, for perfect sound quality with your beloved TOTL headphones from Audio-Technica, Focal, Sennheiser and ZMF Headphones. Equip with an Element series DAC from Matrix Audio for Roon Ready and Tidal streaming.

    Cayin N6II R01 Titanium Limited Edition

    There seems to be no stopping Cayin Audio from breaking new ground. The N6II family cumulates in its crowning glory – R01, a discrete R2R ladder DAC built of 96 individual, precise resistors with the full player carved from titanium, limited to 600 units worldwide. [See Product Desc. For More] The modern formula for natural detail, soundstage and imaging free from the nasties of normal digital playback, the resurgence of discrete R2R ladder architectures comes as little surprise for listeners tired of hearing fatigue. It's only natural that Cayin, the premier pioneers in Head-Fi, would adopt the technology for portable use. READ ALSO The ultimate N6II: R01 rightfully raises the roof And adopting it meant doing it thoroughly, with no shortcuts. Regular PCM and DSD audio data is oversampled to a high 24-bit, 768Khz stream by R01's FPGA, that is then fed on to a true 24-bit resolution resistor ladder DAC.  By building with the exact 96 resistors necessary to operate at the resolution – nothing more, nothing less – Cayin keep individual tolerances extremely precise. Any minute mismatch error remaining gets scrubbed out as random noise beyond the audible band thanks to its oversampled operation. R01 is a true labour – literally – of love that is cost, parts and time intensive. In the spirit of the N6II it's a module that is undisputedly high performance. Despite the use of oversampling, Cayin eschew the chance to attenuate signal digitally. You'll instead find a PGA2311 analog volume control in charge and maintaining the resolution of R01's resistor ladder the proper way. A signal-to-noise ratio of 115dB in a discrete DAC, built in-house from the ground up, is testament of the design's know-how. READ ALSO Cayin's N6II – a technical marvel that starts with AKM, TI or ESS Neither would Cayin have left a special R2R architecture out to dry, alone. N6II/R01 remains one of the most usable, practical players with full Android O, Google Play Store support guaranteed via a Snapdragon 425 CPU and 4GB of RAM. It's a truly modern device experience, with a heritage R2R touch.

    Cayin RU6Cayin RU6

    Cayin RU6

    Cayin Audio were R2R pioneers in a smart music player, but the advent of the R2R RU6 USB-C DAC/amp dongle establishes them as masters of the fully-discrete resistor DAC topology in portable audio. Entering 2022, this is all it takes to achieve the buttery, natural and resolving sound, plus imaging depth, R2R is known for. Building a discrete R2R DAC in N6II/R01 had already been no mean feat. Yet to have gone one further, and implemented a 4.4mm DAC dongle for Android, iPads and laptops is a most ambitious step for R2R. It's worth it to Headfonics who cite RU6's "analog" approach. [See Product Desc. For More] It gets harder every time it gets smaller, so RU6 marks Cayin as masters showcasing how they can make it work. Descended from R01, RU6's boasts a chain of 96 0.1% precision, temperature stable, resistors. That imparts a fidelity to mobile audio not yet experienced. Over 200 mW of balanced power gets most earphones and headphones loud, on the move. ecoustics say RU6 "is not only very unique but also one of the best of its kind". Everyday Listening rates "RU6’s wide stage and analogue-like note presentation granting it one of the sweetest and most euphonic sounds I’ve encountered". Your music will be decoded up and down RU6's 24-bit ladder of individual resistors, crammed into its thumb-sized chassis over two separate six-layer PCBs. The actual R2R ladder DAC is kept apart from signal processing to lower noise. We pay attention when Cayin implement RU6 ala typical R2R – with a NOS (non-oversampling) mode. That's double the feat because the precision demanded goes up. Amidst minimal digital filtering, R2R's analog-like goodness gets delivered unmolested to your ears. Lovers of reference sound need not fret, however, with RU6's ability to switch from NOS to oversampling mode for the cleanest possible result. That scrubs any last distortion and artifacts beyond the audible human hearing range, leaving you to just enjoy your music, naturally, via one more Cayin innovation yet. That precision is backed up by a low-power, fully analog, volume control solution. A series resistor operates with shunts as voltage dividers in tandem with relays, to maintain near-perfect resolution of your music and a signal-to-noise ratio of over 110 dB. A totally novel volume solution has made this a feat for a USB-powered dongle DAC; let alone a R2R one.  Take all 30g of the RU6 built from CNC aluminium with you in your pocket, bundled with a USB-C cable as stock for all your mobile devices, with additional leather cases and Lightning-to-USB-C cable (not MFI-certified) sold separately.  Also check out the rest of Cayin's releases here, or view our other DAC/amps here.

    Cayin YD01 Fantasy

    YD01 is the stuff of dreams, wielding the magic material that is beryllium. Fantasy's beryllium-plated dynamic driver offers credibility to the idea of a Cayin Audio chain: capably built by the same manufacturer from start to finish, source into IEM.  Cue all associations with beryllium – Fantasy is resolute about its portrayal of detail, with forceful and taut dynamics – and there's still more than meets the eye. [See Product Desc. For More] Chambering affairs in a two-way cavity and magnet structure means airflow in the shell is controlled more precisely, as your music flows from the big, composite diaphragm. The higher magnetic flux as a result allows more linear excursion. Fantasy boasts power, and more importantly, control. Its 10mm driver starts with a sandwich driver core of biocellulose, a paper-like fiber prized in audio for its effective damping at higher frequencies. This surface is then coated with beryllium for the metal's stiffness, lightness and air acceleration properties. That means Fantasy's driver material combination helps it move as a perfect piston over all frequencies up to and above its working range, keeping distortion down due to cone and modal break-up as frequencies rise. It's a truly full-range driver, producing bass all the way to a treble waveform perfectly and accurately. Headfonics were the first to hail it for its "beautiful upper midrange and amazing depth of field". Twister6 were struck by Fantasy's "max clarity and resolution with the min coloration and distortion of the sound". In Everyday Listening's simple terms, it's "out of this world". Fantasy is built in every way as a flagship IEM. Both Advance and Supreme cables from Nobunaga Labs improve this in various ways, as does the myriad of stock tips included.
