At a Glance
Today an increasing number of music lovers are buying storing and listening to music through their computer, media server, or personal music player (iPod). Many are also digitally distributing their music using a Sonos, squeezebox, or one of a host of digital music distribution systems available on the market.

Get to know this product.

  • 4 digital inputs: any coax (s/pdif), optical, XLR (AES/EBU), or USB digital input from an iPod transport, computer, media server, Sonos, squeezebox, CD/DVD
  • USB input accepts 24bit/96khz signal
  • Electro-Harmonix 6922 tube single-ended (RCA) output
  • Solid-state differential balanced output
  • Ti PCM 1796 24bit/192khz DAC

We Designed The Dac25.3 To Directly Address This Problem And To Significantly Improve The Sound Quality Of The Music Played On These Systems.

By uniting a state of the art digital to analog converter with a tube output we produce the clarity and precision of a 24bit DAC with the warm rich open sound people love of tubes. The dac25.3 features the latest Texas Instruments (formerly burr-brown) PCM 1796 24bit/192kHz, advanced segment, stereo audio digital to analog converter. This processor features 123dB dynamic range an 8 x oversampling digital filter and just 0.0005% THD. The dac25.3 up samples to either 96kHz or 192kHz which is user selectable on the front panel. To achieve the best sound we use an advanced asynchronous re-clocking and anti jitter control system upstream of the PCM 1796 DAC. For this system we are using the Philips 74HC574 in conjunction with the ti SRC4192 asynchronous sample rate converter whose master clock is a high precision active crystal oscillator. The dac25.3 also features a large r-core high current oversize power transformer. A headphone output is provided for convenient personal listening.
