I have used this excellent professional quality DAC/Preamp for several years to drive. And tube amplifiers and it is a joy to listen to as well as to operate. A variety of needs with high quality analog outputs and analog and digital inputs.Headphones inputs on the face of the unit have easily powered several different headphones. And if you have a good headphone you will appreciate what you will you hear. One of the headphone inputs automatically mutes the output of the unit. One of the coaxial digital inputs can be configured to act as a digital pass-through.
All analog inputs remain in the analog domain. One feature that makes this unit so good is that the front face has LEDs that indicate both sample rates and word length displays. In addition there are LEDs for monitoring power, dim/mute, polarity and inputs. A solid performer with good sound-staging the unit portrays what is coming from the sound source with accuracy no matter if it is digital or analog.
Even the volume control is motorized and a joy to use. It was sent back to the factory this past March and met all the factory specifications.
The only work that was needed was the replacement of the USB input. No work on the electronics themselves was needed. PLEASE NOTE: No remote control is included in this sale. A power cable and the excellent Instruction Manual is included. This is a solid, well-built unit that feels as good as it sounds.
