Our ultra-purist R-2R topology has no digital filters, noise shaping, upsampling, oversampling, or error-correction. Our direct-coupled analog output stage has no output capacitors or transformers to limit bandwidth or color the sound. For optimal performance we use multiple LC choke-input power supplies and ultralow-noise ultrahigh-dynamic discrete regulators that isolate each type of chip or clock.
Our unique 2-piece ultra-rigid polymerized ferrous chassis has extremely low mechanical resonance and incredible shielding from RFI and EMI. To further minimize mechanical resonance we mount our circuit boards on Sorbothane standoffs and offer a range of high-performance anti-resonance feet. Thick ferrous and copper barriers shield sensitive signal path components from power supply and digital from analog signal path. We also offer a range of advanced shielding options to lower noise floor even more.
We employ advanced grounding topologies. Circuit boards use hybrid star-plain grounding. Shield barriers and shielded connectors are daisy chained to Earth ground with low-impedance silver plated wire. To optimize system integration the DC signal ground can be floated from the AC, Earth, and chassis grounds with the flip of a switch. We even include a grounding lug.
All of these topologies result in an incredibly low noise floor, and the lower the noise floor, the more subtlety and nuance you can hear in your music. The result is the most natural time, tune, tone, and timbre possible from a digital source. Effortless micro-dynamics, incredible micro-detail, and organic harmonic structure.
Our technology brings you closer to the original musical performance.
