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.
