The all-new peerless PAW S1, which inherits the same prestigious DAP architecture from the Lotoo PAW Lineup, aims to raise the bar again in the field of Portable USB DACs. Much more than a rocket in your pocket, the PAW S1 is the revolutionary game-changer that will ignite your Multi-Media Entertainment experience like never before!
Title: Beyond Comparison
Known for its top-of-the-line DAPs, Lotoo decided to add a DAC-Amp to its PAW Line-up to satisfy the needs of ultra-portable audio lovers. It goes way beyond the conventional boundaries of the performance a DAC is expected to have. At a fraction of a cost of its prestigious DAP siblings, what Lotoo introduces to the market is a pocket powerhouse built upon the same DNA as the rest of the PAW family line. The PAW S1 uses the same architecture Lotoo employs in its DAPs (namely PAW Gold Touch and PAW6000), so you can consider it to be an ultra-small DAP without storage.
Why isn’t the PAW S1 just another USB DAC?
I’m pleased with this dongle since it has a 4.4mm output as well as a 3.5mm. Everything feels solidly made, and the operation is easy to manage. Recommended!
EZ to use, sound was great, love it. But the USB-C to Lighting cable price is very too HIGH.
I have had no issues and the MQA update is working great.
This little amplifier produces high quality sound and is an excellent companion to my iphone when streaming H.Q. music sources. My biggest disappointment is that it doesn't have a graphic equalizer option that allows manual manipulation. Instead it offers a number of pre-set equalization settings which for the most part I do not find to be satisfactory.
MusicTech supplied useful information pre-sale and ultimately delivered the item in a timely fashion.
I am very happy with the design and build quality of this little DAC-Amp. It provides much more realistic, musical sound than my computer, and offers good value for the price. You may not appreciate the realism or subtleties this DAC-Amp can produce, however, unless you are using fairly efficient, audiophile level headphones.
