This is TEAC's most recent DAC. This uses the AKM AK4490 DAC chip. It will decode natively 16, 24 and 32 bit at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 176.4, 192, 352.8, 384 khz. This DAC will also natively decode DSD 64, 128 and 256. This has 2 S/PDIF input, 1 Toslink, 1 USB and one balanced AES/EBU. There is also an input for a line level analog source so this DAC can be used as a preamp of sorts. Volume control is in the analog domain, so unlike many DAC's with a volume control, this will not rob data! This has 2 headphone outputs, 1 stereo variable or fixed line level (with RCA Jacks) and a set of balanced outputs. This unit also has a discrete output stage. DAC also has 5 filter settings for PCM, 2 filter settings for DSD and built in selectable upsampling of 2x, 4x, 8x; it can even convert all to DSD. This also has a provision for an outboard 10Mhz clock to more precisely time the internal oscillators (please see listing for "10Mhz Clock Modified by Better Music! Co."). There is clearly evidence of "trickle down" from the ultra high end line "Esoteric" in this DAC.
I purchased this DAC new in December of last year. It has been used very little. I emphasize very little. It could literally pass for new. The asking price is a way to save good money on one of these. Functionally and visually it is perfect. Includes original box, packing, cord, remote and manual.
