DAC-2v2SE, with the reference 9038PRO DAC chip

Our flagship, special edition DAC-2v2SE builds on the DAC-2v2 and is a tour- de-force in DAC technology and a bonafide reference  product by any standard. At it's heart, the new 2v2SE gets the best DAC chip on the market, the ESS 9038PRO*. This chip is absolutely state-of-the-art with respect to specs and sonics. The 2v2SE is all about no-compromise, so how could we not use the best chip available?

 Enhancing the already stellar performance of our DAC-2v2, the DAC-2v2SE includes an array of highly upgraded components: Vishay Z-Foil resistors, ultra-low noise discrete regulators, ultra-fast recovery Schottkey diodes, premium 

grade inductors, green OLED display and a premium upgraded fuse. The culmination of these enhancements is refined audio performance down to the minutest nuances.                                                                                          Delivering the highest quality audio of our digital-to-analog convertors, the DAC-2v2 SE is like the DAC-2v2 on steroids! As with all our DAC v2 products, the DAC-2v2SE is both an incredible performer and a great value for your dollar, easily outclassing DACs 3-4x the cost. With the DAC-2v2SE, you will enjoy simply the best sound from your music system.


Femto grade clock upgrade included!

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! The DAC-2v2SE model comes with this clock standard.
