As with the DAC-2 and DAC-2 DSD, the special edition DAC-2 DSDse boasts all the remarkable technology of its sister products including the industry-standard ESS 9018 32-DAC, DSD processing, and our proprietary discrete output stages. Enhancing the already stellar performance of our DAC-2 series, the DAC-2 DSDse includes an array of highly upgraded components: Vishay Z-Foil resistors, ultra-low noise discrete regulators, ultra-fast recovery Scottkey diodes, premium grade inductors, green OLED display and a Rhodium-plated Furutech fuse. The culmination of these enhancements is refined audio performance down to the minutest nuances.
Femto grade clock 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-2 DSDse model comes with this clock standard and for a modest fee you can select the upgraded clock during the checkout process for any of our DAC-2 models!
Phenomenal product. It took over 200 hours to break in. I have a tube buffer with expensive tubes that made my old DAC sound better, sweeter, more air. I can now hear the distortion from the tubes and don't use it any more. I have a Levinson pre-amp and music is more open and natural if I by pass the Levinson pre-amp. I added tenderfeet and a stabilization disc from Herbies Audio and the clarity and pacing is even better. The sound improves with every cable upgrade. In this price range there are some hard choices. I like the company and their customer service. They are very quick to get back to me and more importantly they are helpful and there is a 5 year warranty.
