RHA Dacamp L1 Portable headphone amplifier and DAC
Sold Out & Discontinued
The Dacamp L1 is a portable headphone amplifier and DAC with dedicated processing circuits for each audio channel.
It uses premium DAC components to decode, convert and produce high-resolution, true-to-life analogue audio.
Able to retrieve digital audio signals from smartphones, laptops, tablets and desktops.
The Dacamp L1 is the first device of its kind to feature dual DACs and amplifiers, with each pair responsible for one channel of high-resolution stereo audio. Each channel is independently processed by a ES9018K2M DAC and class AB amplifier in order to transmit a pure, balanced sound signal to each headphone or speaker transducer.
- With 3.5mm and Mini XLR audio outputs, it can be used with a wide range of headphones (12-600 ohms).
- A 4000mAh Li-ion battery provides 10 hour playback and charges mobile devices.
- Bass and treble control dials (-3dB - +9dB) and 3-step gain control.
- Compact, durable aluminium casing inspired by classic hi-fi.
- For use with iOS, Android, Mac and Linux via USB, as well as mini-TOSLINK and 3.5mm line in.
- Supplied with silicone bands, grip cloth and USB micro-B-USB micro-B/USB A-USB micro-B cables.
- Three year warranty.
How it works:
- Digital audio signal bypasses standard onboard smartphone, laptop, desktop or DAP components, transmitted to Dacamp via USB.
- Audio is converted, amplified and enhanced by high-resolution dedicated channel DACs and amplifiers.
- High purity analogue audio signal is transmitted to headphone transducers to generate true-to-life sound.
High-resolution audio any time, anywhere
RHA's Dacamp L1 retrieves and processes digital audio signals from mobile and desktop devices, recovering subtleties, imaging, details and depth lost as a result of inferior sound processing components; producing quality as close to the original recording as possible.
The Dacamp is High-Resolution Audio certified by Japan Audio Society.
Dual DAC, Dual Amp
Revolutionary channel processing
With dual ESS SABRE 32 ES9018K2M digital-to-analogue converters and class AB amplifiers, the Dacamp L1 has a fully balanced circuit configuration. The result is precision, reference-grade audio reproduction with support for audio formats up to 384kHz/32bit PCM and Quad DSD (11.2MHz, DSD256).
Sound, your way
Bass, treble and gain control
In addition to three gain levels, the Dacamp L1 affords unprecedented control over bass and treble frequency ranges with physical 12-step control dials (-3dB to 9dB) to adjust sound to meet your requirements.
One device, multiple uses
Multi-device input compatibility
The Dacamp L1 bypasses most devices' onboard audio components, retrieving and converting digital audio signals directly. In addition to compatibility with current smartphone OS systems (Android 4.0+ with OTG, iOS), the Dacamp L1 easily integrates into Linux, Windows and Mac operating systems.

For devices without USB output and other DAC devices, the Dacamp L1's amplifier can operate via 3.5mm line in. For hi-fi seperates and consoles, the Dacamp supports mini-TOSLINK optical input.
Durable, compact, classic
Inspired by hi-fi
Encased in machined aluminium, the Dacamp L1 features a premium design inspired by home audio with an intuitive interface and recessed controls to prevent accidental adjustment. The case is formed using aluminium extrusion, resulting in a single, durable piece. The all-metal outer doubles as an electromagnetic shield, protecting against signal interference.
Play for hours
10-hour battery life and charge out function
Using a 4000mAh lithium ion battery, the Dacamp L1 is able to power headphones from 12 - 600 ohms for up to 10 hours via the 3.5mm headphone out and 4-pin mini XLR connections. While not in use, it can be set to charge portable devices via USB connection.
The Dacamp L1 features a fully balanced Mini XLR (4-pin) output for use with the RHA CL1 Ceramic in-ear headphone's Ag4x cable.
Each channel is separated from the source device to the ear, eliminating the risk of interference or distortion.
