A superb sounding dac from the desevedly famous Bel Canto, made in the USA. Easy to use in any system, and it's small footprint makes it simple to incorporate into any rack or cabinet. Some technical info: As a 24-bit/192KHz machine, the DAC2 uses Analog Device's asynchronous AD1896 upsampler to take advantage both of its whopping 139dB S/N ratio and integral twin-speed digital phase-lock loop. A Burr Brown, dual differential, multi-bit, Delta-Sigma DSP architecture with 32-bit math is followed by Stronczer's fully balanced current-to-voltage stage. The critical analogue reconstruction filter now is akin to a first-order crossover network. Set at 96kHz, it uses slow roll-off to minimize phase shift especially in the treble while maximizing transient precision. A local crystal oscillator reference clock drives the DAC directly for minimal jitter. Separate digital and analog ground planes with multi-stage power supplies and four-layer board support the claimed 117dB signal-to-noise of the overall circuit.
