The N8ii DAP Music Player is a premium portable music listening experience that's packed with every flagship-level feature you could want. Designed around a pair of ROHM BD34301EKV DAC chips, you can listen in either solid state or tube amp mode, thanks to a pair of Korg Nutubes. Dual amplification mode allows you to choose either Class A and Class AB mode. Mix and match these four options for a variety of sound flavors, from warm and lush to clean and tight. Equipped with Wi-Fi and Android 9, the N8ii is streaming ready. You also get 128 GB of internal memory for your own music files plus the option to insert an SD card for additional file storage. The N8ii can decode up to PCM 32BIT/768kHz files and up to DSD512. The N8ii features Bluetooth 5.0 and supports major codecs such as LDAC, AAC, and SBC, plus you'll get up to 11 hours of battery life. At about 15.5 ounces, the N8ii is on the bigger and heavier side as portable DAPs go. There a large AMOLED touchscreen display, and most of the I/O (including 4.4mm and 3.5mm headphone outs and an I²S port) are on the bottom of the unit save for the SD card slot, which is housed on the right side of the device with other control buttons. Up top you'll find a luxurious gold volume control knob.
