High Resolution Accuracy.

ESS Technology's 32-bit Sabre³² DAC with patented Hyperstream™ DAC architecture and Jitter Eliminator provides accurate sound reproduction.

Low Jitter. Perfect Timing.

Two stages of jitter reduction in the digital audio stream keep jitter to a minimum ensuring the delivery of your music is timed to perfection.

Pure. Emotion.

Ultra-low distortion provides transparent, detailed and accurate sound reproduction which captures the heart, soul and emotion of music.

Tonally Correct.

The audio circuit has no capacitors in the signal path to introduce phase shift to the analgue signal – ensuring your music retains its purity and intended tonal balance.

Touch Panel Interface

Home Theatre Bypass

Full Function Remote Control

Asynchronous. Detail. Transparency.

The asynchronous 24-bit/192kHz USB input allows the superior detail, dynamics and transparency of high definition music to be fully experienced.

Brings Music to Life.

The fully balanced audio signal allows true 24-bit dynamic range and retains the liveliness and sparkle of your music – bringing it to life.

Isolated Digital Inputs.

Electrically isolated digital inputs assure no ground loops and stop the power supply noise in source components from degrading the sound quality.

Clean. Noise-free.

Digital signals are kept clean and noise-free by discrete shunt regulators with high noise rejection, reducing jitter and allowing your music to shine.
