From UK-based Prism Sound, regarded as one of the best pro audio manufacturers in the world, comes the Callia DAC.
Dynamics are bold and energetic when called upon, but delicate and gentle when need be. The largest voices as well as the subtlest nuances are all reproduced with clarity and agility. Whether it is vocals, a full orchestra, or electronic music, you will hear and enjoy everything as it was intended.
The Callia is a fully-floating balanced architecture for maximum channel separation and clarity of sound. With built-in volume control, you can connect it directly to your amplifier. The volume control can also be bypassed for use with an external preamp. Digital-to-analog conversion is performed using a custom FPGA-based solution.
"...silky, luxurious sound, married to its ability to expose the most minute details.
The leading-edge transients were razor sharp and unfailingly musical."
