Earlier this year, FiiO entered into the world of HiFi Portable USB DAC/AMPs along with its sub-brand Jade Audio with the KA3 and KA1 USB DAC/AMPs. Yesterday at their online launch event, FiiO and Jade Audio introduced the latest KA2 Portable USB DAC/AMP. KA2 is here to bridge the gap between the entry-level KA1 which offered a single-ended connection and the flagship KA3 which offered both single-ended and balanced connections. The brand new FiiO KA2 comes equipped with dual CS43131 DAC chips. The device has a fully-balanced architecture with its 4.4mm headphone output port. FiiO KA2 is launched officially for a pocket-friendly price of just 59.99$. Feel free to check out more details about the brand new FiiO KA2 here.

With its high-performance Dual DAC architecture housing two CS43131 DAC chips, the KA2 provides exceptional performance by achieving ultra-low distortion and high SNR values. It supports high-resolution 32-Bit/384kHz and natively DSD decoding. FiiO KA2 gets a fully balanced audio circuit with a 4.4mm balanced headphone output. Similar to other products in the famous “KA” series of portable DAC/AMPs by FiiO, the KA2 has a seventh-generation mechanical design with full-metallic chassis. It houses a multi-color RGB indicator light on the front too that indicates different bitrate with different colors.
