For sale is one used Auralic ARK MX+ DAC in very good condition. This DAC is scratch free and performs great.
This is a great sounding DAC as well.
The ARK MX+ is a 32 bit 192 Khz DAC with USB and coaxial digital inputs. It has both RCA and XLR analog outputs. It also has one digital output using an AES/EBU (XLR) connector.
Auralic offers multiple original technical solutions by managing to combine the advanced digital technology and the sophisticated analog circuit.
-AURALiC Sanctuary Audio Processor
The heart of ARK MX+ is AURALiC Sanctuary audio processor, which is jointly made by AURALiC and its technical partner: Archwave AG in Swiss. Sanctuary is based on multi-core ARM architecture, with the calculating capability as high as 1000MIPS, it could handle 32Bbit/192KHz multi-channel real-time audio stream.
Resorting to the ActiveUSB™ technology from AURALiC, ARK MX+ overcomes the transmission limitation from traditional Asynchronous USB which could only adjust +/-one clock cycle error of data package in isochronous clock. With mass data buffer technology and multi-stage, high resolution PLL circuit, ARK MX+ could buffer audio stream as long as 2 seconds, which prevent time-based jitter resulted from the limitation of computer.
-Self-adapted upsampling circuit
Upsampling to higher sample rates make improvements to fine detail, sound stage depth and image separation. The self-adapted upsampling circuit inside ARK MX+ could automatically choose the best upsampling ratio; it could convert 44.1KHz & 88.2KHz to 176.4KHz or 48KHZ & 96KHz to 192KHz. Such self-judgment uses proprietary interpolation technology to provide the highest possible fidelity at all sampling rates from 44.1KHz to 192KHz so as to precisely restore the originality of music by avoiding the signal distortion from non-integer ratio upsampling algorithm.
-Low noise DC amplification circuit
ARK MX+’s analog circuit adopts low noise DC amplification circuit designed by AURALiC. All the components have been manually examined and preciously matched. Low noise DC amplification circuit is the working fruit from our engineering team after long-term design and optimization. It is low in noise and distortion but wide in dynamic range. Moreover, since there is no couple capacitance in signal path, the purity of audio signal could be ensured; thus, the music turns out to be naturally alive and silky smooth.
