XtraSOUND delivers audio with even lower distortion and lower noise floor. Get the absolute best performance from your hi-res audio files without compromising portability and battery-free convenience. Plug into your Android, Windows, Mac or Linux device and instantly give your high resolution audio files the outlet they deserve, bypassing the low quality consumer soundcards found in most computer hardware.

But don’t let the pencil thin aluminum case fool you: the Spectra X packs plenty of power with enough output to drive headphones up to 300Ω (after which 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.

REVOLUTION STARTS NOW

The reviews are in. According to audiophile reviewers around the web, the NextDrive Spectra simply cannot be beat in terms of cost 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 X delivers exceptional bass speed and clarity, well-balanced mids that are slightly forward, smooth treble without a trace of harshness; simply put, it is a listener’s delight.

The Sabre SoC is the industry’s highest performance 32-bit mobile audio DAC with unprecedented dynamic range & ultra low distortion. It features a patented 32-bit HyperStream DAC that boasts a +121dB DNR. The DAC also has a patented time domain jitter eliminator for unmatched audio clarity free from input clock jitter. Integrated DSP functions give you click-free soft mute and volume control.

The NextDrive Spectra X works out of the box with Windows, MacOS, Linux and Android devices.

> Spectra X is NOT compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPad Pro.

> Due to its focus on the best possible audio output, Spectra X cannot be used to take calls. Use your phone's built in mic when taking a call.

(Inline controls such as play/pause, vol. control or handsfree microphones are not supported)

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great, but with the same caveats as any USB-powered DAC/Amp
By Velgus on September 8, 2020
Drives all headphones I've used with it very well with absolutely 0 noise floor. This includes the Meze 99 Noir, Sennheiser 6XX, and the Final Audio E4000s. Sound signature is very neutral, don't expect it to flavor the sound of your headphones like tube amps or such.

One of the other reviewers clearly had a dud or knockoff - the device is very solidly built with absolutely no wiggle from the jack with any cables, or sounds that come out of the headphones when trying to wiggle it. I've owned the device for a bit over a year now with no concerns about the build quality.

One caveat is that it is a DAC/Amp that uses USB power. In my experience, these are susceptible to noisy/poor USB power sources. This is likely the issue the other reviewer who has issues with the audio cutting out is experiencing. My computer also has this issue, however it is completely resolved by running the device off a USB hub with a dedicated power source. I've had similar issues with audio cutting out using other USB-powered DAC/Amps on my computer prior to getting a powered USB hub.

Overall I highly recommend the device to anyone looking at getting a quality dongle USB DAC/Amp, though I did get it for cheaper ($149.99) than the current list price at the time of writing this review ($189.00).
