Cayin is one of the oldest players in the HiFi audio industry. What started as a brand focused on designing desktop headphone amplifiers, has evolved into a brand with full-fledged range of portable products including high-definition audio players. Today celebrating their 30th Anniversary, Cayin has introduced the world’s first-ever fully-discrete fully-balanced pure 1-bit DSD Android digital audio player, presenting the all-new Cayin N7. Priced at a whooping 1999.99$, the latest Cayin N7 packs wonders under its hood. This premium player packs a series of fully-discrete audio circuits including the DAC section, the LPF section, the amp section, etc.

Cayin N7-1

It takes efforts and years of research to develop a fully-discrete audio circuitry, and the N7 here packs a series of those. As a benefit, it allows more room to fine-tune the sound signature and offers improved sound over OPAMP-based circuits. Cayin N7 adopts a fully-discrete 1-Bit Pure DSD DAC that converts the digital signal into analog through a resistor ladder network series composed of 128 precisely chosen thin-film resistors. It is supported by a discrete LPF circuit and a discrete fully balanced amplification circuit. Cayin N7 promises an organic, natural, lively sound that is true to the listeners and the fully discrete audio circuitry has made it possible for Cayin to achieve such a level of awesomeness.

Cayin N7 houses a 4-channel discrete component-based fully-balanced headphone amp circuit. It has Class A and Class AB dual operational modes and delivers amazing performance in both modes. The circuitry here adopts low-noise JFET as the differential input stage and BJT as the voltage amplification and output stage. Class A amplification requires all channels to be in near-identical gain, they are manually matched and manually installed to the PCB before final soldering. With this dual-mode amplification, N7 achieves ultra-clean and refined sound output that is suitable for both, low-impedance high-sensitivity IEMs and high-impedance, low-sensitivity Headphones.

Cayin N7-3

Cayin has featured independent output ports for headphone output and line/pre-amp output on the N7. The device supports 3.5mm single-ended and 4.4mm balanced output connections, it has dual 3.5mm and dual 4.4mm ports one for headphones and the other for line/pre-amp output. The player uses a resistance ladder-based electronic volume controller from JRC. It adopts a 4-channel design in one single integrated chip. Cayin N7 allows ultimate precision and lower distortion while adjusting the volume.

Cayin N7 is a premium Android audio player that promises quality performance with its premium audio circuitry. It’s actually quite interesting to see all the tech that has been implemented inside the N7. Priced at 1999.99$, the Cayin N7 seems interesting. We hope it performs as nicely as it is equipped with features. And believing on the history of Cayin, we are pretty sure that it does!! The player is available worldwide through the official retailers for Cayin.
