Hifime Sabre 9018 USB DAC for desktop speakers?

Hi there,

will the Hifime Sabre 9018 USB DAC also work with computer speakers like the Audioengine A5+? I'm about to buy decent headphone speakers but also new computer speakers, and I need a DAC that can run both.

Thanks in advance


Hi, yes the Sabre 9018 can drive either headphone or line level loads (such as an amplifier for speakers).

Thanks for the fast answer!

So I would need an additional amplifier because the USB DAC doesn't have enough power to drive the A5 Speakers directly?

Hi, I see that those speakers are powered, that means they have an amplifier built inside. So yes it will work, don't need any additional amplifier then.

Thanks alot for checking!! I'm kind of a beginner with DAC's etc.. bought the DAC from you :)
