Product Information

Shift is a USB Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) and headphone amplifier housed in a small and portable chassis roughly the size of a deck of playing cards. It is designed to completely bypass the headphone output on your smartphone, tablet or personal computer and provide exceptional sound quality - wherever you happen to be listening. The built-in battery pack provides up to eight hours of playback on a single charge so shift is a perfect travel companion - whether you are commuting to work on a train or taking a flight to visit friends and family. The built-in headphone amplifier powers everything from in-ear monitors to “difficult-to-drive” over the ear designs, and everything in between.

You love music and are passionate about sound. You have a great Hi-Fi system at home that allows you to enjoy both. If you own a car, chances are you opted for the premium sound system. The “ear buds” that came with your mobile phone - are still in the box. Music is the soundtrack to your life. However, your “on-the-go” listening experience has always been a bit of a disappointment. Your headphones, which sound great with your home system, sound thin and weak when listening from your smartphone, tablet or personal computer. shift is made for you.

Shift is designed to be used in several listening situations. Its small size, light weight and real leather exterior lend itself to being a portable device. However, Shift can also be connected directly to the USB port on a personal computer to drive your headphones or interface with your powered speakers in a desktop “computer audio” system. The sound quality improvement over using your computer’s headphone output is immediately noticeable! The bottom of shift even includes rubber pads to add protection and stability when it is placed on a desk or table. In addition, whenever shift is plugged into a USB port on your computer it is recharging its internal battery pack so it will be ready to hit the road again whenever you are. Finally, shift features a line-output mode switch so it can used as a USB DAC in your Hi-Fi system. Simply connect your personal computer to the shift and let it provide the analog audio output to your system. Peachtree thinks you will be impressed by how great the shift sounds even when compared against much more expensive dedicated DACs!
