The new Essence HDACC (Hi Def Audio Control Center) DAC/Preamp Features HDMI Audio De-Embedding, Asynchronous USB, Coaxial, Optical, & 2 Analog Line-Inputs with A/D Conversion. All Up-sampled To 24/96K-192K LPCM analog 2 channel out.
The Essence™ Hi Def control center is a high quality DAC featuring an ESS Sabre DAC for excellent jitter reduction and sonics. It is a very good DAC and preamp with analog inputs. It is unique in its ability to de-embed and playback 2 channel and multi-channel uncompressed Blu-Ray music on your analog 2 channel audio system thru its HDMI input. It also has a quality A to D converter. Just run the HDMI out of your Blu-Ray player into the units HDMI input and the HDMI output to your TV's HDMI input. It will take the uncompressed Blu-Ray audio, decode it, and send it to your preamp and send the video thru to your TV.
If you’re an audiophile with a 2 channel analog preamp or receiver, you’ve got a problem. The highest resolution uncompressed audio content on Blu-ray has been out of your reach. Current Blu-ray players only have HDMI & Coaxial outputs now, no more analog except on the most expensive models on the market. The HDACC is a versatile digital preamp/DAC with HDMI, Asynchronous USB, Optical, Coaxial, & Analog Line Inputs coupled to a DAC with RCA and XLR outputs that converts all your audio sources to 24 bit / 96K or 192K analog audio. It so includes a nice headphone amplifier.
The High Def Audio Control Center is a very good digital-to-analog converter, but it’s much more than that. It’s also a versatile preamp with remote control and enough inputs to handle all of your analog and digital music sources: LP’s (with separate phono stage), tapes, disc players, network music players, and even your computer. What puts this DAC in a class by itself, in addition to its excellent sonics and feature set, is it’s HDMI input, with analog output, so 2 channel high end audio systems can now play uncompressed Blu-ray soundtracks with all the dynamic range of the live performance, bit-for-bit identical to the original master recording.
