Silverstone Ensemble EB01-E DAC, EB03 Amplifier Review

Rating: 8.0.

Today we are going to take a look at two new products from Silverstone which are quite a departure from the cases, power supplies and storage accessories we have seen from them in the past.

The Silverstone Ensemble EB01-E is a USB DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) which promises excellent reproduction of audio from digital signals. It is essentially an improved version of the EB01 which was released back in 2006.


The Ensemble EB03 is a headphone amplifier which has been designed to work in conjunction with (or independently from) the EB01-E, delivering more than adequate power and quality for high-end headphones.

  • Utilizes premium XMOS XS1 TQ128 USB decoder for accurate sound reproduction
  • Includes TI PCM1798 D/A converter for producing high quality analogue signal
  • Includes TI NE5532 OP amp for optimal analogue output

  • Classic SilverStone Ensemble exterior design
