THX Onyx review – THX AAA DAC/AMP Dongle that redefines sound quality!

Welcome to my review of the THX Onyx portable DAC amplifier equipped with THX AAA technology which retails for £199. 

So what’s is all the fuss about this dongle. THX AAA technology has been taking the audio scene by storm. It enables the world’s highest fidelity audio and maximum dynamic range, whilst still being able to drive power hungry, audio grade headphones with significant volume. 

In addition it features a MQA renderer supporting services that provide this from Tidal. This is direct rendering using the DAC.
