“I didn’t get the chance to test the S1 on my iPhone because of compatibility issues with the Lightning to USB-C cable I had on hand (along with simply running into deadlines). Nor did I get the chance to plug a set of balanced ‘phones into it. But I did spend a lot of hours listening to the S1 with a variety of in-ear monitors and headphones, playing a range of music including lots of CD-quality and high-resolution files. I liked what I heard all through the process.

The Lotoo is well connected. The overall character of the S1 leans towards neutral with some warmth – just a touch, but not enough to become problematic. It offers excellent dynamics and superb levels of detail and insight into the recording – the kind that would please even the most fervent audiophile. It does this without adding too much of its own character and remains smooth at all times, never descending into brightness or harshness.

To round things off, it’s well-built, feature-packed, incredibly portable, and comes without the eye-watering price tag expected for this level of performance. In short, you’ll hear more of your music, and you’ll enjoy it more when you use this device, especially if you add in some high-end, well-matched headphones or IEMs. It’s a great little product! I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t considering getting one for myself.” Witch Doctor Review – Read more>>

Known for its top-of-the-line DAPs, Lotoo decided to add a DAC-Amp to its PAW Line-up to satisfy the needs of ultra-portable audio lovers. It goes way beyond the conventional boundaries of the performance a DAC is expected to have. At a fraction of a cost of its prestigious DAP siblings, what Lotoo introduces to the market is a pocket powerhouse built upon the same DNA as the rest of the PAW family line. The PAW S1 uses the same architecture Lotoo employs in its DAPs (namely PAW Gold Touch and PAW6000), so you can consider it to be an ultra-small DAP without storage.

The Lotoo Paw S1 is a flagship for the USB DAC’s. It features a high-performance DAC chipset that provides an unmatched sound clarity output. The chipset is inspired by the top of the line DAP range from the brand and boosts similar sound quality output. It features a low distortion value of 0.0004% and a background noise level of -118dBu, the DAC/AMP provides a crystal clear sound output with minutest of the details popping out. It is able to decode PCM up to 32-Bit/384khz, and DSD up to DSD128 natively. Along with a premium high-performance DAC chipset, the PAW S1 uses a standalone AMP chip, OPA1622 that boosts out powerful output with no background noise.


Built-In EQ/ATE:-
Lotoo Paw series of DAP’s have their own customized EQ and ATE settings that users can choose from, the Paw S1 also houses those EQ/ATE settings, so users can expect a high-class DAP level performance from their smartphones with the use of Paw S1.


OLED Display:-
Lotoo Paw S1 houses an OLED LCD display that shows the basic info like active PCM/DSD format type, active EQ, High/Low gain modes, and volume levels. This is surely an innovative and new edition to the USB Type-C DAC/AMP’s.


Exquisitely Well Built:-
Lotoo is very famous for its brilliantly made DAP’s. They all have premium and exquisite built and the Paw S1 is also not an exception. It is a very well built product with CNC Aluminium material, it houses an OLED display on the front and media control buttons on the right side.


Plug and Play:-
Lotoo Paw S1 features plug and play support, one doesn’t need to install any drivers on PC/Smartphones, just plug the S1 into Type-C port and it is ready to use. The Paw S1 supports Android, iOS, MAC, Windows OS without any issues.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
