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 zinc plated carbon steel chassis has extremely low mechanical resonance and incredible shielding from RFI and EMI. Thick steel barriers shield sensitive signal path components from power supply and digital noise. To further minimize mechanical resonance all of our circuit boards "float" on Sorbothane standoffs.
Advanced hybrid star plain grounding lowers noise floor even more. An AC to DC ground lift switch allows you to isolate DC ground from AC, chassis, and Earth grounds. We even include a grounding post to allow advanced system grounding.
All of these typologies 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.
