A certain credit card became famous for its "never leave home without it" slogan. The Shure SHA900 might not be able to book a hotel room or secure dinner reservations, but this petite but powerful headphone amplifier/DAC does a whole lot more – it allows you to hear your favorite music in soul-rejuvenating fidelity no matter where you go, an experience for which there's no substitute. Five fixed EQ profiles and four user-defined EQ settings let you hear artists just as you want to hear them. And a high-quality 24-bit/96kHz DAC means high-resolution audio is never far away._x000D_
The premium, stand-alone SHA900 Portable Listening Amplifier features a USB digital-to-analog-converter (DAC) that converts analog or digital audio from portable digital audio sources and computers. For use with high-quality headphones and earphones, the SHA900 features a 24 bit/96 kHz conversion rate, customizable 4-band parametric EQ with five standard and 4 user-defined settings, rechargeability and input level meters. The SHA900 can process both digital audio directly via micro-USB, analog via a direct line in, or bypass entirely for a pure analog signal without conversion. The SHA900 defines a new standard of portable listening that brings high-fidelity audio into the mobile demands of today's active lifestyles.
