Professionally Implemented AKM DAC Chip:-

Lotoo Paw S2 extracts every single bit of performance of the legendary AKM4377 DAC chip leaving nothing wasted.

High-End DAP Architecture:-

Lotoo has designed the Paw S2 like they design their high-end digital audio player systems. The Paw S2 features Blackfin DSP, advanced 2x8 layers of HDI PCB design. The analog board here employs a low-noise, low-temperature drift metal film resistor of millesimal accuracy.

Lotoo Paw S2-3

Highly-Accurate Phase-Locked Loop:-

Lotoo Paw S2 uses AK8142, a programmable clock generator IC with an integrated fractional N PLL. They had previously implemented the same clock in their high-end digital audio players. It is a highly accurate jitter clock that effectively reduces USB and SRC interface jitter ensuring a high-end performance with the device.

Powerful Output With Standalone Headphone Amplifier:-

Lotoo Paw S2 features a standalone headphone amplifier that provides a powerful output of up to 150mW @ 32Ω through the 4.4mm balanced headphone output.

“features a legendary AKM4377 DAC” Are you kidding? it’s cheapest AKM’s integrated DAC+Amp (means no line out) chip used in dozens of dongle, bluetooth and low end players as FiiO M5, BTR3K ets. Also it has only single end output, so Lotto divides it at power amp stage for balased output. Sure, total result of DSP, CLC, DAC, AMP is superior, but DAC chip itself is so-so
