About our Digital to Analog Converter (DAC)

In the good old days, your digital music was delivered on a disc and the CD player converted the digital information into music. Today, the process of converting digital information into music is done by the Digital to Analog Converter (DAC). It takes the conversion process to new levels of performance and gives the user access to a multitude of of digital sources, from CD's to online streaming music services. Because most digital music is high resolution today and quite large in size, a DAC must be able to effectively handle the rush of incoming data, process it and send it off to your stereo in a streaming manner. If it cannot do any of those tasks well, the entire system suffers. So rather than being a simple piece of audio equipment, a DAC must straddle between the digital and analog worlds. On the one hand it has to properly negotiate data from an external source without losing any information, it needs to reassemble that data into an analog waveform and it needs to hand that analog signal off to your stereo without distorting it. It is easy to understand why designing a great DAC requires a lot of experience and technical know-how. We constantly evaluating new technologoes with a keen eye on spotting real advancements in digital to analog conversion and eliminating those that are all marketing hyerbole. We are proud of the solutions we offer and believe they represent the best available in several price points. To learn more, contact us to hear a world class DAC for yourself.
