Keces S3 DAC/Headphone Amplifier/Preamplifier Review
August 2, 2019 § Leave a comment
“The Keces Audio S3 really does everything one might ask of it, and does it impressively well. While it can be used as a quality stand-alone headphone amp, a highly resolving dedicated DAC, or even a simple but excellent preamp, I believe the biggest value comes when combining multiple functions. The headphone listener who wants a single-box DAC/amp solution capable of driving pretty much any full-size headphone should give it serious consideration. And if said user might also integrate speakers into the mix – either active monitors or passives with a separate amp – they will find the S3 to be a superb control center for the entire setup. It satisfies my previously mentioned criteria of features plus sound quality, in a compact and well built package, for a price that is surely advantageous compared to buying separate components. For that, the S3 is enthusiastically recommended.
