no longer for sale

The D100 Mk2 stereo digital to analog converter is the sum of our quest for true audio fidelity. By combining the highest quality components with a solid scientific foundation, the D100 Mk2 produces music that is free of coloration and true to the source.

Digital audio is processed by a Wolfson WM8804 which provides excellent jitter rejection. The signal is then fed to a pair of Burr-Brown PCM1794A chips operating in mono mode for the greatest dynamic range, highest signal-to-noise ratio, and complete channel separation.

The majority of high-end audio DACs utilize an active analog output stage comprised of op-amps, feedback circuitry, and additional filters. In contrast the D100 Mk2 output stage is entirely passive and consists of 0.1% resistors with Jensen output transformers—the output is a pure audio signal.

The Mk2 features new Jensen output transformers that provide an additional +6dB of gain over the original D100.
