DAC-2 Series - We have two trade-in units at a 25% savings!
Accurate conversion of music and sound from the digital world to the analog realm is the cornerstone of a top-quality system. For the discerning audiophile, we created our flagship digital-to-audio converter: the DAC-2.
At the heart of the DAC-2 is the industry-leading ESS 9018 Reference Audio 32-DAC. Using the chip’s trademark ESS Time Domain Jitter Eliminator, the ESS 9018 utilizes an oversampling process that eliminates all of the clocking inconsistencies (jitter) found in a typical digital-to-analog conversion. The result is an information stream that’s cleaner from source to sound, free of artifacts. Combined with our proprietary discrete output stages, which optimize sonics, the DAC-2 delivers the absolute most accurate and musical sound.
Defeatable pre-amp functionality allows audiophiles with 100% digital systems to completely eliminate the need for a pre-amp, reducing signal processing and increasing transparency.
In addition to Coax, Toslink, and AES/EBU units, the DAC-2 also features a balanced I²S input that when mated with our PCOCC HDMI cables and a compatible source, yields unmatched sound quality. Proprietary USB drivers for all operating systems make installation easy and a compact footprint makes the DAC-2 the perfect fit for any system.
Femto grade clock option
Accuracy and overall quality of the master clock are crucial to obtaining optimum sound quality. The standard clock is no slouch but you now have the option to upgrade to the highest grade component available in its class. Implementation of this femto grade clock optimizes audio quality by lowering phase jitter by over 80% as well as greatly reducing phase noise in the digital circuit. Clocks of this grade are typically found in DAC's retailing for $5K or more!
