Trickle-down excellence - few other products can earn that badge with so much pride as the new Cyan 2 from the leader in digital excellence, Holo Audio. The wait for the this little giant was surely worth it. The Cyan 2 is the embodiment of a design philosophy that focused on sound quality above all and with this clear vision as the driving force led to an unmatched value for money solution. No frills and no whistles are not only good for your pocket but also for achieving the best sound quality possible and at an affordable price, certainly in the context of absurd price escalations in the hi-end industry

We are quite proud of the Cyan 2 and confident in saying we think you will find it most impressive as well. It’s a true balanced discrete resistor ladder DAC with both PCM and DSD support packed into a smaller footprint of desktop space. Utilizing cutting-edge R2R discrete ladder DAC technology, Cyan 2 delivers an authentic and true-to-source audio experience. Say goodbye to oversampling artifacts and embrace the purest form of sound reproduction.


Cyan 2 “青2”, A new generation DAC of fully discrete resistor network (commonly known as R2R). Relative to its predecessor the Cyan “青”, the Cyan 2 “青2” has the following improvements:

  • Equipped with R2R network and vector step resistor network at the same time. The R2R network is used for primary digital-to-analog conversion of the PCM stream, and the vector step resistor network is used for primary digital-to-analog conversion of the DSD stream.
  • The new generation of de-glitch technology can provide full-amplitude de-glitch without increasing the noise floor and other adverse effects.
  • Based on this new generation of technology, Cyan 2 “青2” Can provide >106db SINAD and >127db dynamic range.
  • USB supports sampling rates up to DSD1024 and PCM 1.536M.
  • The USB interface uses proprietary firmware with ultra-low latency, a highly reliable data transmission, ideal USB eye pattern measurements that contributes to 2-4 times higher performance than official firmware.
