DAC-2v2

At the heart of the DAC-2v2 is remarkable new ESS Sabre 9028PRO chip. This new chip is a significant improvement on the former flagship 9018S chip in many ways and we're pleased to offer it in the newly redesigned DAC-2v2. Combined with our proprietary discrete output stages, which optimize sonics, the DAC-2v2 delivers the most accurate and musical sound.

 

The back of the DAC-2v2 supports a host of digital connections. In addition to Coax, Toslink, and AES/EBU, the DAC-2v2's USB connection supports PCM files up to 32-bit/384kHz and utilizes galvanic isolation to eliminate computer noise from the audio signal completely. You can also choose to use the balanced I²S input that when mated with our PCOCC HDMI cables and a compatible source, yields unmatched sound quality. 

 

Integer mode compatibility allows direct communication between the signal source for bit-perfect playback in Mac systems. Additionally, the DSD interface is driverless for Mac and Linux platforms, ensuring seamless installation. A simple driver install is needed for USB streaming from PC systems. 

 

With its built-in volume control functionality, the DAC-2v2 allows audiophiles with 100% digital systems to completely eliminate the need for a pre-amp, reducing signal processing and increasing transparency. Of course, the preamp section is fully defeatable for those with preamps that they prefer to use. The DAC-2v2 offers audiophiles the clearest window into their music and a truly sublime listening experience.

 

Femto grade clock option 

Accuracy and overall quality of the master clock are crucial to obtaining optimum sound quality. The standard clock is no slouch but you now have the option to upgrade to the highest grade component available in its class. Implementation of this femto grade clock optimizes audio quality by lowering phase jitter by over 80% as well as greatly reducing phase noise in the digital circuit. Clocks of this grade are typically found in DAC's retailing for $5K or more! The DAC-2v2 SE model comes with this clock standard and for a modest fee you can select the upgraded clock during the checkout process for either the DAC-1v2 or DAC-2v2 models.
