2-In-1 Digital To Analog Audio DAC
Converter With Headphone Amplifier
This high-performance digital to analog stereo audio converter decodes the digital coaxial/optical S/PDIF
audio sources into stereo channels for the existing A/V
receivers, amplifiers, mixers or recording deck that do not have digital
inputs. The design of this external DAC system helps solve the dilemma of current home audio setup that many of you are facing these day
- Need better quality D/A conversion than the built-in DAC from your current system.
- Run out of the digital inputs on the existing amplifier,
home theater or AV receiver.
- Need to add new or more digital audio devices
to the existing amplifier or AV receiver.
- Do not want to spend more for upgrading existing stereo system for the new digital
- Need to add digital inputs to the existing
all-analog receiver/amplifier .
- Need to provide additional digital inputs when the existing ones are
insufficient or of low quality.
This external DAC system
can save you a bundle without doing the costly upgrade by integrating the digital
audio interconnects from many new A/V equipments into your existing home stereo or analog power amplifier systems. What's more,
this unit easily outperforms
many of those with built-in low-resolution D/A converters found in
low-and mid-priced DVD/CD players, A/V
receivers and amplifiers, offering the ideal solution for improving the existing hi-fi
You connect your existing player's
optical or coaxial digital output to the DAC and then use the DAC's analog RCA
output to your amplifier. It's very simple and effective. It doesn't matter if
you are an audiophile or just want to enjoy better quality music.
Advanced Digital Decoding
Featured with high resolution
digital signal processor, this
digital to analog audio format converter delivers top-quality
audio output with super low
distortion, noise-free high
fidelity sound from all digital audio devices like CD/DVD players, Blue-ray, A/V
receivers, home theater systems, video game consoles, audio mixers, satellite
receivers, HD cable
box and so on. Its analog stereo outputs maintain the original digital audio
information with the same detailed sonic depth.
This digital audio converter reclocks and resamples incoming digital
audio information from satellite, CD/DVD, DAB
using the internal digital filter before
they are decoded. With 8x over sampling at a 96kHz
sampling rate, the actual D to A conversion process
takes place at 352.8KHz for a 16 bit/44.1KHz CD audio signal, and
384KHz for DVD audio. This higher frequency sampling rate reveals
more detail information that is present in the master source but not audible
during the normal playback of CD and accounts
for a large part for the detailed resolution.
The resulting stereo audio playback from this D/A
converter will be a dramatic and
noticeable improvement from its original source. Disc-based audio playback from
player or video game consoles can all benefit from this DAC unit with increased audio decoding
Digital Audio Inputs With Seamless Switching
This unit provides 4 supreme digital
audio inputs, 2 optical inputs via Toslink and two coaxial S/PDIF via coax RCA.
Any one of the 4 digital inputs can be easily selected through the push button
on the front panel with LED indication. Each selected input channel will be converted and routed through
its analog outputs accordingly. The switching
between different digital input channels and the resulting analog stereo outputs are instant
and seamless without any lag time.
This digital to analog audio
converter can be operated in conjunction with other digital audio equipments or
used as a stand-alone converter.
Distribution Amplifier With Simultaneous Stereo Outputs
This D/A converter is also served as a audio splitter with amplifier
function built in. Each digital input channel
can be converted into simultaneous stereo outputs.
This DAC unit provides 3 analog
audio outputs, consisting of 2 sets of
stereo channels and a 1/4 stereo headphone plug with associated volume control.
One set of analog stereo output has
fixed volume level and the other stereo set has adjustable volume level :
- Fixed line level stereo
output for use with audio recorder or mixer.
- Variable line level
through the volume dial on the front panel of this unit is meant for use with audio receiver or
from the stereo headphone socket and stereo RCA channels are all treated separately. This means that the two
types of outputs are separately amplified with accurate musical
sound quality. No interference with loading on the various ports.
Monitoring With Amplifier
This digital audio converter can also function as a stand-alone headphone monitoring amp for making fine
comparisons between different digital sources during recording or mixing.
This headphone output is driven by a built-in 700mW
which is a high current amplifier, capable of driving a wide
variety of headphone loads and easily outperforms many other
headphone amplifiers with substantial audio clarity through the use of
a headphone or earbuds.
control dial on the front panel of this unit is used to set the output audio level of
the headphone or the variable-line-level RCA stereo output but not
both at the same time. Designed to connect directly to
power amplifiers and powered speakers in order to provide the
shortest path from digital to monitor output.
All of the inputs and output terminals on
this DAC unit are gold-plated for superior corrosion resistance. The two
Optical Toslink inputs are fitted
with shutters that can keep dust and dirt out of the connector.
Powered Audio Splitter With
non-powered audio distribution
amplifier can dramatically reduce the output
to the headphones
or earbuds, which not
only affects the overall volume to your headphones but
also diminishes the audio dynamics as
well. In the end users
will have to turn up the volume of the audio player, thus distorting the musical
The supplied switching power supply of this DAC
unit has been specially designed and optimized for audio applications in order
to insure low noise, wide dynamic range and superior sound quality to be
delivered through its analog outputs.
- High-resolution digital to analogue audio
converter with superior audio
dynamic performance for consumer audio and musical
- Adopts the enhanced multi-level DAC chip
for improving the sonic output quality and reducing jitter sensitivity
in actual applications.
