ΤΙΜΗ ΜΕ ΦΠΑ : SATIN / CLASSIC SILVER : 2310 EURO.  demo unit 1620 euro.

                            SATIN BLACK : 2385 EURO.                


 -Asynchronous USB Hi-Speed Audio 2.0 compliant optically coupled with Texas ISO7640 

 -Native DSD 2.8 – 5.6 Mbit/s (and also 3.072 & 6,144) and PCM 384 kHz – 32 bit on USB 

 -Driver not necessary on Apple OSx and Linux 

 -ASIO driver for DSD reproduction on Windows XP/Vista/7/8.

 -ESS Sabre flagship ES9018 DAC chip that runs until 384kHz-32 bit in double balanced configuration 

 -Advanced I2S port supports PCM until 384-32 and native DSD 

 -Separated toroidal transformers for analog and digital section 

 -Analog output is available on unbalanced and balanced connectors with true balanced circuit. 

 -High precision film resistors and capacitors on analog stage 

 -Separate analog ground plane for each channel section with star connection 

 -Integrated components analog stage with flagship OPA1611 

 -Coaxial digital input coupled with pulse trasnformer 

 -AES/EBU digital input 

 -DPLL ON-DAC for maximum jitter reduction 

 -Digital filter selectable from setup for PCM (high, low slope) and DSD reproduction 

 -Phase selectable 0-180 degree from setup 

 -The THD is very low 0,0003%.

 -Separated low noise power supply for USB port 

 -USB firmware update/upgrade from PC

 -The sound is fantastic, natural and detailed. The ESS DAC is really a miracle. In particular the DSD files are more natural than PCM but both are at the maximum level. Also a normal 44.1/16 sounds fantastic.


 -Digital input frequency: 44.1 kHz to 384 kHz up to 32 bit native DSD x64 – x128 (352.8-384 kHz and native DSD ony on USB) 

 -Dynamic range: 130dB 

 -Distortion: 0.00015% 0 dB (balanced output) 

 -Digital input: 4 S/PDIF (2 RCA coax, 2 Toslink), 1 XLR AES/EBU, 1 USB2.0, 1 I2S RJ45 

 -Analog output unbalanced: 1 pair per channel on RCA connectors 

 -Analog out balance: 1 pair per channel on XLR connectors 

 -Mains voltage/consumption: 230/115 50/60Hz 10W – Stand-by 0.5W 

 -Demensions / Weight: 17in (W) x 7.5 in (D) x 2.7 in (H) – 11.5 lb
