Our Take

EarMen is coming up with a NEW sophisticated DAC that has a wide range of abilities to offer. EarMen Tradutto is a piece-of-art device with the power to enhance the sonic performance of your system.

All the Sources

Tradutto lets you enjoy music from any source, such as Coaxial, USB, TOSLINK connections, or HD Bluetooth. Wherever songs are played from, Tradutto stays true to the character of every instrument and uncovers a musicality that you’ve never heard before. It offers a variety of options and freedom of choice that you can customize to your own sensibilities and possibilities.

Built in Qualcomm HD Bluetooth 5.1 (AAC/SBC/aptX/aptx LL/aptx HD/LDAC) - BlueTooth QCC5124 is designed to meet demands for robust, high quality, and wireless Bluetooth listening experiences in small devices with low power consumption for longer audio playback. Qualcomm® aptX™ audio, aptX HD, and Qualcomm aptX Adaptive audio technologies are designed to deliver consistent and high quality audio streaming over Bluetooth.

MQA Studio quality audio

Tradutto supports Tidal Masters (MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) which is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download. MQA Studio (the same as MQA, just with the consent of an author or production company) is also supported.

Outstanding Audio Performance

At the heart of Tradutto is the extremely high-quality ESS Saber digital-to-analog converter ES9038K2M that delivers outstanding sound performance that can process digital audio files up to 32bit/768kHz or DSD512, so you can enjoy high-resolution music in every detail. EarMen Tradutto is designed for true audiophiles and features the finest DAC circuitry.

  • The ES9038Q2M DAC allows outstanding sound performance and easily handles digital audio files up to 32bit/768kHz or DSD512. Furthermore, the whole circuit is optimized to draw less current and improve power filtering, resulting in low interferences from Wi-Fi, cellular, and Bluetooth signals.
  • Featuring XMOS with 16 cores (XU216), its excellent performance enabled us to hardware decode MQA as well as other necessary functions for listening to music.
  • The clock is carefully adjusted to operate with minimal jitter.
  • The digital and analog part of the circuit is also carefully separated by the power supply.
  • Featuring WIMA capacitors to obtain the lowest THD, as well as audio electrolytes in combination with MELF low noise resistors and SoundPlus OPA1642 operational amplifiers, which function great for getting neutral sound.
  • Gold Plated PCB - Not only does it give a good clean low resistance contact, but also the perfect flat surface.
Exceptional Workmanship

Tradutto is born from a full block aluminum chassis, which makes it extremely durable and robust. Compact design makes it fitting to any environment, any system, or home. The PCB is embedded in a solid aluminum housing, giving the board greater protection inside the housing and additional insulation from external influences.
