A Fully Portable Hi-Res DAC and Amp for iOS
The DAC-HA200 is the first headphone DAC/amplifier to enable direct-digital connection to your Lightning-equipped iOS device via USB. Just plug your iPhone®, iPod touch®, or iPad® into the USB-A input on the amp using a regular Lightning cable, access your free Onkyo HD Player Pack app, and experience your 96 kHz/24-bit FLAC, WAV, and 5.6 MHz DSD albums with premium digital-to-analog conversion and Onkyo amplification. The depth and clarity of high-resolution music is yours to enjoy anywhere, anytime, and best of all, you’re free to use your phone or tablet as you listen. 
Enjoy Lossless Audio from Android
Connect your AOA 2.0-compatible Android device to the USB-A input to experience CD-quality direct-digital audio on the go, with the DAC-HA200 performing D/A conversion via asynchronous USB transfer. The amp is capable of receiving and amplifying digital music stored on Android phones and tablets to a maximum of 48 kHz/16-bit resolution, and you can continue to use your phone for other things while you bask in premium hi-fi sound.
The Power and Energy of Onkyo Amplification
Onkyo has more than 65 years experience building some of the best-sounding hi-fi audio equipment in the world. This heritage is clear the moment you plug your headphones in to the DAC-HA200. A classic MUSES 8920 op-amp is married to discrete push-pull output stage circuitry (not a cheap integrated circuit) for exceptionally low distortion and high driving power. The result is detailed, energetic, and deeply enjoyable sound reminiscent of a quality hi-fi component system.
Premium Asynchronous D/A Conversion
While the DAC inside your smartphone or PC is fine for casual listening, a decent pair of headphones will quickly reveal its limitations. The DAC-HA200 features a TI Burr-Brown PCM5102 two-channel DAC, a high-quality chip used regularly in hi-fi equipment for its low out-of-band noise performance and high resistance to jitter. Connect the DAC-HA200 to your Mac, PC, or Android device via USB, and the PCM5102 takes over both the clocking (signal timing) and D/A conversion, opening out the sound and uncovering layers of detail previously obscured by high-frequency noise.
Free Access to HD Player Pack for iOS 
When you connect your DAC-HA200 to iOS devices equipped with Onkyo’s HF Player application using a USB cable, you receive free access to HD Player pack for as long as you remain connected. Normally an optional in-app purchase, HD Player Pack allows you to load high-resolution audio files onto your iOS device and output them to the DAC-HA200 via the digital output. Now you can enjoy 96 kHz/24-bit FLAC, WAV, and ALAC files as well as Double DSD* anywhere you want, complete with free access to HD Player Pack’s 16,384-band FIR equalizer. You can tailor the sound by genre, band, or to individual tracks and save EQ presets for later recall.
* DSD-IFF and DSF formats are converted to PCM before playback.
Drive High-Impedance Headphones with Selectable Gain Feature
This powerful, high-quality headphone amplifier works its magic on all the headphones in your collection. A two-stage selectable gain function lets you drive everything from low-impedance IEMs when you’re out and about to full-sized dynamic headphones when you’re at home or in the office.
Combined Digital and Analog Switching Input
A single input handles both digital and analog signals from connected devices, automatically detecting the signal type. Digital-to-analog conversion is also performed by the DAC-HA200 when connected to media players with a digital-out function.
Up to 11 Hours Playback on the Go
The DAC-HA200 returns approximately 11 hours of playtime when using Audio IN connection, making it one of the longest-lasting DAC/amp devices on the market. You can recharge in eight hours using the supplied DC to USB cable and a PC.
Tough, Compact, and Stylish
Although it’s small and lightweight, the DAC-HA200 is based around a very durable aluminum body. It’s easy to use when you’re on the move with a large knurled volume control, positive-action gain switch, and handy status LEDs. Keep it in your shoulder bag and be free to use your smartphone as you play music via USB cable, or use the supplied rubber bands to attach a media player and slip it in your pocket as you cruise the streets, immersed in hi-res audio heaven.
In Your Pocket or On Your Desktop
With its compact size, hi-res asynchronous digital-to-analog conversion, ample inputs, and rechargeable lithium-ion battery, you can take your music with you anywhere you go. Use the DAC-HA200 with your laptop and a set of on-ear cans at home; plug in a pair of IEMs for the daily commute; and connect a set of quality closed-backs at the office and keep listening while it recharges. In every case, the DAC-HA200 provides stunning new insight into the music that powers your life.
