Topic: How can a portable amp/DAC have more power than an RME ADI-2 DAC fs?
Whenever I look at how powerful an amp is, I always look at the current it can provide for low impedance cans like planars. I usually look at the 16 Ohm specs.
The RME ADI-2 DAC fs shows that it has 0.94W at 16 Ohms.
This portable micro idsd (https://ifi-audio.com/products/micro-idsd-signature/) shows that it can provide a whopping 4.1W at 16 Ohm.
How is that even possible for something that small to have more power than the RME? Maybe I am just reading the specs incorrectly.
I appreciate your input.
