Advanced ES9038PRO DAC Chip:-

Topping has equipped the D90SE with an all-new powerful ES9038Pro flagship-grade DAC chip from Sabre Technologies. It decodes high-resolution audio signals with great quality providing a transparent and noise-free output signal. D90SE achieves industry-leading performance with ultra-low distortion and high SNR & dynamic range in the output.

2nd Gen XMOS 16-Core USB Signal Receiver:-

The flagship DAC is supported by XMOS XU216, a 2nd generation 16 core high-end USB signal receiver. It provides support for the high-resolution audio signal, the D90SE decodes PCM up to 32-Bit/768kHz and DSD up to DSD512 natively over the USB signal input.

MQA Support:-

Hi-Res decoding with the Topping D90SE is not limited to hi-res PCM and DSD signals, it also supports MQA decoding. It unfolds the final layer of the MQA files and presents a studio-like immersive experience for its users. MQA decoding is supported via USB, AES, Optical, and Coaxial input options.
