Stereo Valve D/A Converter
Product Features:

DAC100 is a non–oversampling, no upsampling design with multi–bit dac chips. The carefully designed power supply is with shunt regulators. I/V conversion is done by a specially designed, built in house transformer. Τhe analog stage uses single-ended class A transformer coupled triodes with valve rectification and choke regulation. The valves are the high mu, high transconductance, low noise SIEMENS C3g NOS tubes.
There are two available inputs:
- SPDIF coaxial 75Ω with next gen connector
This input can be used with our CDT 100 Drive, or other high quality transports.

- Neutric 5 pin analog current input
When this input is used with CDT 100 the digital part of the dac is disabled and is powered off. Only the analog section is used. With CDT 100 we strongly recommend the use of this input for optimum performance.

The conclusion has been reached that by using this 5-pin connector the signal is transferred to the analogue section of the DAC100 at an absolute optimum sonic capacity avoiding all the limitations of digital interfacing.

All transformers are designed and built in house using the best available materials and are wound with sophisticated techniques for a totally transparent sound. The transformers are of enormous size in order to achieve the absolute performance we seek. We believe the DAC100 reaches the limits of digital reproduction and can be compared only with the best analogue sources. The DAC100 D/A converter is also 24bit/192Khz capable when used in high resolution digital sources.
