Unboxing

Review:

I really like to have balanced outputs in a DAC given the fact that they connect to a PC and hence it is very easy to wind up with ground loops. Usually balanced output comes at a cost of higher price as it is considered a premium feature. Not the case here. You get XLR output and importantly with superbly low noise and distortion for a really budget price. The nice case completes the picture.

Given all of thisI am happy to recommendthe Soncoz LA-QXD1 DAC. Amir Majidimehr (Amirm) Audio Science Review Read the full review here test

        Use & Operation

        Front Panel

        Front

        • The front panel is simple and user-friendly. Straight forward and easy operation of the different functions.

        • The upper right corner is the function indication area and includes four back-lit function buttons.

        • The four back-lit function buttons indicate and provide quick access to the following functions: input sound source selection volume level adjustment filter mode selection and mute function.

        Input source selection

        3 Types of source input available .Press the settings button to easily switch between them:

        Input

        The Default Power-ON State£º

        • PWR & USB lights are on.

        • USB port input .Filter mode is APOD.

        • USB to digital coaxial is on Volume (-64dB)

        • Quickly press the leftmost setting button once to switch between the three input sources (USB/COAX/TOS).

        Filter Modes

        7 Filter modes are available for PCM£º

        Filter

        • Press and hold for 2 seconds the mute button on the right to switch the filter mode. Each press changes the filter mode only once press and hold the mute button again for 2 seconds to switch to the next filter mode and so on.

        • For the current filter mode please refer to ¡¶LA-QXD1 DAC filter mode setting truth table¡·

        Volume and Mute

        The volume can be adjusted in one of two ways by a pressing and holding the volume button to change the volume in big steps quickly or by a quick press for fine-grained volume adjustments:

        Volume

        1. The default volume is -64dB the volume adjustment step is 0.5dB/Step and the maximum volume is 0dB.

        2. Press and hold the volume +/- buttons to adjust the volume quickly. When changing the volume the light above the corresponding button will start repeatedly blinking. When the volume reaches the minimum or maximum level the indicator light will stop flashing.

        3. Quickly press the mute button to turn on the mute function the light above the PWR button will start glowing in a breathing effect to indicate that the device is mute. To turn the mute off quickly press the mute button again.

        Miscellaneous

        The LA-QXD1 is a multifunctional DAC in addition to the features and settings mentioned earlier there are some precautions:

        1. Analog balanced XLR and single-ended R outputs can be connected at the same time .The The two interfaces can be simultaneously connected to their corresponding power amplifier devices (amplifier/power amplifier).

        2. LA-QXD1 is a high-performance DAC that can also be used as an excellent Pre-amp.

        3. The DAC's internal modulator filters and volume control cannot be bypassed. These functions are determined by the DAC chip.

        4. LA-QXD1 can be easily used in pure DAC mode .to do so simply raise the volume to the maximum.

        5. The Volume adjustment and mute functions are only valid for the analog outputs. They are not valid for digital output.

        6. During DSD playback the DSD audio signal is sent directly to the DSD decoding chip without any prior conversion.

        7. Custom USB driver .supports up PCM768KHz/DSD512£¨Native£© .Drivers are not required for the device's functionality. If you use the operating system's native USB Audio 2.0 Drivers (UAC2) Some formats and high sample rates may not be available for playback.

        8. Do not use the USB ports of the PC to supply power to the DAC. The USB port of the PC has an average current of around 500mA which is not enough to support the normal functions of the LA-QXD1.

        Thermal design

        Thermal

        • The power consumption of the LA-QXD1 device is very low. The low energy consumption combined with the CNC machined aluminum body results in a high heat dissipation efficiency.

        • Keeping in mind that if used in conjunction with other devices the overall heat dissipation may not necessarily be the best. Multiple ventilation holes were implemented on the underside of the LA-QXD1 to provide excellent cooling and ensures thermal stability. This thermal design guarantees the highest prformance levels under a variety of harsh environmental conditions.

        Ultra-Low Noise HiFi Power Supply System

        The LA-QXD1 power supply system utilizes a unique multi-level voltage regulator design to ensure a clean & pure power supply that guarantees the performance of the entire device.

        1. Power input uses USB Type-C 5V@1A .Practical and convenient

        2. The Analog op-amp power supply utilizes multi-level voltage regulation.

        3. The power for the DAC's digital section is supplied by an ultra-low noise LDO.

        4. The DAC's analog power supply uses ES9311Q ultra-low noise LDO and multi-level voltage regulator.

        Ultra-Low

        High-Performance Chips

        LA-QXD1 utilizes individually selected chips that each offer excellent performance to ensure the outstanding performance of the entire device.

        High-Performance

        Minimal Interaction Warm Color Indicators

        • The intuitive interaction of the LA-QXD1 is applied to simple and straightforward buttons and LEDs. By default it is a plug-and-play device without any complicated settings.

        • The indicator lights follow the color pattern of the indicator lights of the SONCOZ brand series of products. The warm non-glaring glowing orange light perfectly blends into the ambiance and relaxing atmosphere of enjoying music at night.

        • The mute breathing effect along with the fade-in/fade-out effect (The gradual return of the volume to its previous level after pressing unmute) greatly enhance the user experience of the LA-QXD1.
