This Ad is for a brand new built to order DAC.
In our endless efforts to research and design DACs, we arrived at this breakthrough design.
Combining everything we know about DAC designing, at an unbeatable value. Our goal was to get as close as we can to the Golden Gate sound, but at roughly 1/3 the budget.
The resulting DAC positions itself with technology and sound between the Amber3 and the Golden Gate 2. This DAC is a big leap in sound quality over the Baltic 1.
We are very proud of this DAC, being worthy of our 10th anniversary in this industry and showing the best LampizatOr qualities at a more affordable price point.
Every unit is SE and Balanced at the same time, no need to configure the unit as balanced. True balanced topology with four monophonic channels - one per each phase of stereo sound. Engine #53 our best selling engine also with DSD512 on board
True Copper output capacitors
No volume control even as an option
4 digital inputs: USB, SPDIF, TOSLINK and AES/EBU in every DAC
New tube topology that redefines what is possible with tubes in the DAC
Fully tubed, directly heated dual diode rectified, CLC filtered anode power supply.
PCM 384 kHz, DSD x512, fully balanced from input to output
Output impedance 200 ohm per phase
Output level: 2 Vpp (low gain) or 6 Vpp (hi gain) @0dB
Operating systems: USB input is compatible with Windows, Linux and MAC (the only limitation is that MAC plays max DSDx256)
