A dedicated switch on the back of the unit changes between DAC and pre-amp modes. This adds versatility and means Aurora is suitable for use with external amplifiers and is also ideal for use with active speakers.

Furthermore, Aurora’s front panel hosts balanced 4.4mm, balanced XLR and 6.35mm single-ended outputs. Providing an impressive [email protected]Ω from its balanced headphone outputs and 1600mW from the 6.35mm output, Aurora can easily drive demanding headphones with tremendous energy and headroom.

Yulong will reveal DA-ART Aurora at CanJam Singapore next week (2-3 April 2022). Keep an eye on the official Yulong website for more details and pricing once it’s available.
