Description

Housed in an elegant aluminum chassis with a solid aluminum alloy volume knob, the DA-10 is equipped with exclusive Denon technologies to deliver the ultimate music listening experience. Featuring state-of-the-art digital-to-analog conversion, the DA-10 is equipped with the reference class Burr-Brown PCM-1795 32-bit high resolution DAC chip, which can handle multiple sampling frequencies all the way up to 192 kHz, and bit depths up to 24 bits. The DA-10 is also able to decode high resolution DSD audio tracks (the type found on SACDs), and features the ability to decode 2.8 and 5.6 MHz DSD files.

Denon's exclusive AL32 technology uses our proprietary DSP digital filtering, upsampling and processing algorithms to upconvert and noise-shape high resolution digital audio to 32 bits, delivering dramatically improved low level detail and vanishing distortion.

The elegant carrying case features a fold-out design, with 2 individual pouches - one for the DA-10, and another for your portable device. The pouch for your portable device features a see-through plastic membrane that lets you see and operate your phone or music player, and when folded up and secured with the supplied straps, the case helps protect against rough handling and even provides some weather protection.

Purist Audiophile Design

Equipped with the reference class Burr-Brown PCM-1795 DAC chip, the DA-10 features premium audiophile construction, including dual master clock crystals, each optimized for specific sampling frequencies and located directly adjacent to the DAC chip on the audio board for maximum jitter reduction. The digital section features asynchronous USB signal handling for the highest stability and sound quality, and the DA-10 is equipped with Denon's exclusive AL32 advanced DSP digital filtering and noise shaping, providing the highest possible resolution with today's high definition music tracks.

There are individual circuit cards for the digital audio block and the power supply block, to prevent inter-stage interference, and the D/A converter section features the ability to decode the widest range of sampling frequencies (up to 192 kHz) and bit depths (up to 24 bits).

Compatibility with a Wide Range of Portable Devices

The DA-10 comes with multiple connection cables for compatibility with the widest range of portable music players and smartphones. The USB-30 pin cable is compatible with many Apple® devices, including iPod®, iPod touch®, iPhone® and iPad®. The USB-Lightning cable is compatible with newer Apple devices, such as iPhone 5 and 6, iPad Air, and other models that are equipped with the Lighting connector.

There's also a USB-micro "B" connector for compatibility with other smart devices, and we also include a 3.5mm-3.5mm stereo analog cable for connection to a player's headphone output, and the cable features L-shaped plugs for the most secure connection.

Advanced Analog Output Stage with Gain Adjustment

With many portable devices, the internal headphone amplifier section is most often designed for low power consumption, in order to extend battery life. While that's fine when using ordinary ear buds, with premium audiophile headphones, sonic performance suffers.

The DA-10 features an advanced analog output stage that is equipped to handle the widest range of headphone types, including premium audiophile and studio headphone models that often feature low impedance ratings, requiring more power from the output stage.

A side-mounted gain switch lets you adjust the output stage's gain to precisely match the needs of your favorite premium headphones, including low impedance models, and the final analog audio stage features a discrete current buffer circuit for the ultimate listening experience. There's also the option for fixed output, for connection to an external audio system.

Extended Battery Life with Battery Indicator

Featuring a high capacity 3200 mAh rechargeable lithium ion battery, the DA-10 delivers up to 7.5 hours continuous operation when connected to your portable music player or smartphone via USB. The multi-function LED battery indicator lets you know the current battery charge level at turn-on. When the battery is between 50% and 100%, it blinks green. When the battery level drops to between 20% and 49%, the LED blinks orange, and when the level drops to below 20%, the LED changes to red, indicating it's time to recharge.

When connected to a portable player via the 3.5mm port, the battery life can be up to 32 hours. Recharge time can be as short as 3.5 hours, when connected to a USB charger with 1.5A output, or 6.5 hours when connected to a PC's USB port.

Elegant and Versatile Carrying Case

The supplied carrying case features an elegant and stylish design, and includes dual internal pouches for the DA-10 and your portable player or smartphone. The pouch that houses your portable device features a see-through plastic membrane so you can see and operate your device directly, and there are secure straps to keep everything in place. When folded closed, the carrying case also provides protection from rough handling and even provides some protection against the elements

With Denon's DA-10 portable USB-DAC and headphone amplifier, your music will never sound better, and you'll be able to enjoy all the fidelity that your premium headphones can deliver.

Denon Factory Refurbished

Buying a Denon Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it’s repackaged in a new box with all original accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Denon product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is in many ways better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a full 1 year parts and labor warranty valid at any authorized Denon repair center (you can look-up locations online here or call 201-762-6665)

Denon, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2011 consumers returned 17 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! Once a product has been opened it must be resold as refurbished and can’t be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we can’t provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Denon certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and retested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Denon Factory Refurbished" product.

All units are Cosmetically in Mint Condition (graded a 9 or higher on a scale of 1-10) unless otherwise stated. Very minor signs of wear (light surface scuffs or minor scratches) may be present, although most units show little or no signs of any usage. We DO NOT sell products that are cosmetically damaged (cracked displays, broken knobs, heavy scratches, or physically abused) unless noted in the description. Unfortunately, we can’t provide actual photos of each unit or pick the best one for anyone, as they are all randomly chosen from our factory sealed boxes.
