"As a DAC, delivers an extraordinary performance at a competitive price point"

HiFi & Music Source

Audio conversion is handled by the ES9038Q2M DAC chip which offers outstanding sound performance and tackles digital output up to 32bit/768kHz or DSD512 with remarkable ease. MQA, MQA Studio and FSR formats are also supported.

To satisfy a wide array of source equipment, a comprehensive collection of connections are available on Tradutto’s rear panel including digital optical, coaxial and USB inputs.

The Gold Standard
The EarMen Tradutto's rear panel

Tradutto’s inner workings are laden with cutting edge components all configured on a gold plated PCB for low and clean resistance contact as well as perfect balance. The circuit has been optimised specifically to improve power filtering and draw as little current as possible. This move serves to lower interference from nearby WiFi, cellular or Bluetooth activity from other devices.

Qualcomm Out-Of-The-Box
EarMen Tradutto features Qualcomm right out of the box

Each Tradutto comes with Qualcomm HD enabled Bluetooth 5.1 right out of the box supporting major standards including AAC, SBC, aptX, aptxLL, apex HD and LDAC. This implementation is designed to offer longer playback with lower consumption, all without compromising on high quality HD wireless listening experiences.
