DAC-100 D/A

Overview

DAC 100 is our D to A converter. It is a non – oversampling, no upsampling design with multi – bit dac chips. The carefully designed power supply is with shunt regulators. I / V conversion is done by a specially designed, built in house, transformer. Τhe analog stage uses single-ended class A transformer coupled triodes with valve rectification and choke regulation .

The valves are the high mu, high transconductance, low noise SIEMENS NOS tubes.

There are two available inputs:

SPDIF coaxial 75 Ω with next gen connector.
This input can be used with CDT – 100 or other high quality transports.
One Neutric 5 – pin analog current input for use with CDT100.

When this input is used with CDT-100 the digital part of the dac is disabled and is powered off. Only the analog section is used. With CDT-100 we strongly recommend the use of this input for optimum performance.

By using this 5-pin connector the signal is transferred to the analogue section of the DAC-100 at an absolute optimum sonic capacity avoiding possible limitations of digital interfacing.

All transformers are designed and built in house using the best available materials and are wound with sophisticated techniques for a totally transparent sound.

The transformers are of enormous size in order to achieve the absolute performance we seek.

We believe that DAC – 100 reaches limits of digital reproduction and can rival only even analogue sources.

The DAC-100 D/A converter is also 24bit/192Khz capable used in high resolution digital sources.
