Quotes from the manufacturer:
We are big fans of analogue sound, but in the meantime, every modern system uses a lot of digital signals:
UOur goal was to bring the vinyl sound into a DAC and we built a very musical DAC.
Each component has been designed to produce a smooth and pleasing sound.
Quote: "From the first song played through LAB12 from DAC1" NOS DAC: Sounds complete with timbre and color working in the pathway of music Added clarity: Usually NOS DAC's character can be on dark side.
Non oversampling DAC with tube output
A DAC that sounds like vinyl
We are analogue sound lovers, this is a true, but nowadays digital signal flow in every modern audio system. By combining digital and asynchronous USB inputs with classic non-oversampling TDA1543 and a tube based output stage.
Every component of DAC1 is designed to provide smooth and pleasant sound. 8 matched parallel phillips TDA1543 in sophisticated configuration and smooth output through dual triode tube I / V stage. All components are carefully selected after hours of listening and testing, while the attention has been paid to the final outcome (special audiophile power capacitors, NOS tube and more).
DAC wants to be a pleasure not only for your ears but for your eyes too. With its solid construction, handcrafted finishing, luxury metal painting and retro analogue V / U meters you will fall in love with it for sure.
