Master Quality Digital Audio Player
The Cayin N6 has been designed with high quality components in mind. From the PGA2311 digitally controlled analogue volume chip, dual PCM1792 DAC decoder chips, three TCXO chips, a 4 layer Electroless Nickel Immersion gold (ENIG) PCB board, and a large 5600 mAh lithium rechargeable battery.

Premium components are a key to the success of the N6, however that's not the whole story. Cayin has continued to design and engineer high quality audio products for more than 2 decades and their knowledge and experience is evident in their flagship N6 model.

Outstanding Audio Performance
The N6 is a true high res audio player featuring native DSD (Direct Stream Digital) decoding, and support for other file formats including WAV, FLAC, MP3, ACC, OGG, WMA, APE, SACD-ISO, DSF and DFF.

What is DSD?
Direct Stream Digital audio is a high resolution audio format which has a sampling rate of 64 times that of a standard audio CD. This equates to a much higher level of sophistication and detail in the sound recording. Although previously only available using expensive studio equipment, native playback of the DSD format is now conveniently available in a handheld portable device!

Versatile Interface
In addition to the high quality headphone output, the N6 features additional Line level and Digital Coaxial outputs to suit various situations. The Line level output is prefect for connecting the device to an external Hi-Fi or home theatre amplifier, while the Digital Coaxial output can be connected to an external DAC or digital interface.

Powerful DAC Function
The N6 can be used as a powerful DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter) allowing you to achieve fantastic Hi-Fi quality sound when connected to a computer or laptop.

Impeccable Workmanship
The main chassis of the N6 is CNC machined out of a single piece of aerospace aluminium alloy over several hours. While providing a sleek finish the aluminium finish also acts to help disperse heat. The rear panel is made from carbon fibre and flush mounted to the aluminium chassis, creating a near seamless finish without showing assembly parts or screws.
