High Speed USB Input

USB input supports up to 24 bit 384/kHz signals.

  • Asynchronous USB input up to 24bit/384kHz to get stunning sound quality from your Mac or PC.
  • Single-ended class-A headphone amplifier affords it added versatility.
  • The DAC-V1 is now DSD compatible and able to play 64 (2.8MHz sample rate) and 128 files (5.6MHz sample rate); the upgrade required significant optimisation of the core DSP code which has also improved sound quality.
  • Five S/PDIF inputs for digital sources like game consoles, set top boxes, and hard disk servers.
  • The DAC-V1’s compact size makes it perfectly suited as a desktop companion to your Mac or PC, but its exceptional musicality means it will complement our standard-width hi-fi components just as well.
