Analog section of EM7 is designed around the flagship ESS DAC ES9038Pro, with its eight channels feeding a fully balanced amplifier, build on our proven OP+BUF architecture. This amplifier circuit was newly designed especially for EM7, matching the highly accurate and clean sound of the DAC, while providing strong power output for the most demanding headphones. Resulting in our best measuring and most powerful desktop DAC/AMP, offering up to 7W @ 32 Ohm // 1W @ 300 Ohm.
On the Streamer side, EM7 is running our closed and customized system, now build upon Android 10. Giving you access to a range of streaming services, local playback from MicroSD card or USB drives, DLNA, Airplay, NAS and even simple Bluetooth streaming. All run through our Android Global Lossless Output (AGLO) system, assuring the ideal audio performance from Android system. EM7 also switches to a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 CPU, making for a significantly swifter system.
The most obvious part of the EM7 is its new tiltable display. Bigger 5.8-inch touch screen with 1080p resolution can be angled up to 60 degrees, allowing for an easy control no matter if its placed on a desk or on top of a Hi-Fi rack. And of course, there is always our Eddict player app, serving as a remote control for the local playback or as a complete screen mirroring, giving you access to all sections of EM7 directly from your phone.
Mixing both a streamer and a Hi-Fi DAC/AMP into one device can be tricky, but we took steps to limit any unwanted interferences. DAC and amplifier are isolated from the Android section and we are utilizing an independent power supply for each, with a low-noise Noratel toroidal transformer for the Analog section and a high-quality switching power supply for the Android section..
EM7 is a truly versatile device, smoothly switching between its role as a high-end source for headphones, to a pure DAC with an optional pre-amplifier, to a digital source for your DACs with Coaxial, Optical or USB inputs. If you wish, you can even use it as a source for your Bluetooth headphones or speakers.
