We are in an era of unprecedented availability of music and movies. Every pocket holds an entire entertainment library, with virtually unlimited possibilities once connected to the cloud. And yet, progress in terms of sound quality and listening experience have not kept pace.
Welcome to the next milestone in the audio revolution. Smartphones, tablets and computers, often sorely lacking in the audio quality department, finally have a VIP pass to the world of hi-fi: the Spectra from NextDrive.
High resolution audio files “stuck” on a device with low quality audio hardware? Plug into your iOS*, Android or other USB On-the-Go (OTG) capable smart device and instantly give your high resolution audio files the outlet they deserve, bypassing the mediocre quality audio modules found in many phones and tablets. (*Requires camera connection kit or other adapter, sold separately.)
But don’t let the slender aluminum package fool you: the Spectra packs plenty of power with enough output to drive all but the most demanding headphones, at which point you may want to bring your headphone amp into the chain, and its ESS Sabre 9018Q2C chip delivers sound quality previously assumed to be impossible in a form factor this size.
The reviews are in. According to audiophile reviewers around the web, the NextDrive Spectra simply cannot be beat in terms of price versus audio quality, tech specs, portability, construction quality, ease of use and overall wow factor.
With a sound profile that tends toward a ‘reference sound’ with a dash of extra warmth, the Spectra delivers exceptional bass speed and clarity, well-balanced mids slightly forward, smooth treble without a trace of harshness; simply put, it is a listener’s delight.
The Spectra also does double duty as an audio interface, giving you no-compromise sound quality from your mobile studio setup. Supporting low buffer sizes for good latency performance, Spectra can keep up with the busiest producer on the go.
Equally at home driving quality headphones directly or as part of your chain heading to a speaker amplifier, the Spectra is highly flexible. Slim and light, its 3.5 in / 9 cm cable with braided jacket lets it fit anywhere or tuck out of sight when appropriate—no more USB sticking out or blocking neighboring ports! Power is also never an issue, as it draws current directly from the USB port.
It just works.
Plug in; play. No buttons, no knobs, no batteries to change or charge. An understated design does exactly what a portable DAC should: get out of the way and let the music flow!
