The Ultimate Dual Mono 32-bit DAC with advanced tube buffer
Dual Mono D/A Converter. High quality Asahi Kasei flagship AK4497EQ D/A-converters acting in parallel combined with AK4118 receiver and Amanero will play both PCM and DSD Native. Switchable Re-Clocking functionality also for SPDIF and TosLink inputs based on precise 0.3 ppm clock.
The advanced tube buffer utilizes symmetric analog output signal from DAC chip fully, giving spacious, tonally perfect and outstanding sound with lots of details. Two analog outputs, one adjustable, second giving full signal allows to drive two separate amplifiers simoultaneously.
Adjustable output will make possible to use this DAC with any power amplifier, even without extra pre-amp needed. The advanced tube buffer has enough signal volume to drive any power-amp. Adjustable output is based on high quality Alps Blue Velvet potentiometer.
LCD display provides information about digital input selected, digital signal mode in use and digital filter selected.
