7. Differences between the NEW K3 and K3
1. Basically similar appearance design: both of the two models have a classic all-aluminum alloy body with a distinct volume knob.
2. Replace the original DAC chip with the better ES9038Q2M
3. The combination of the mature OPA926 op-amp and ES9038Q2M DAC chip with re-optimized LPF circuit provides sounds with lower distortion and higher resolution.
4. Compared with the AK4452, the signal-to-noise ratio has been increased by 14dB, and the distortion has been reduced by 13dB. In addition, the circuit design implementing this DAC has been optimized for a low noise floor and clean sound.
