  2. Data sheet

The old and the new converter from Accustic Arts stand out more clearly from one another. The developers consciously avoided excessive calculate of artificial intermediate values (oversampling) because of potential profit losses in: noise increases to higher frequencies. The ultra fast 32-bit signal processor in the tube-DAC II SE oversampelt only eight times and used for each data word by 26 reviewers read at the same time transmit their balance sheets. The advantage: less jitter and no parasitic high frequency noise.

Almost everything can be – connected to three digital inputs except a network player. Two 24-bit D/A converter move strictly channel separated the streams in the analog world. After there, the vibrations of the music have gone through various operational amplifiers, meticulously selected tube shape up immediately a subtle range of upper shaft them before the exit. Should the glass bulb is run by aging out of control, an electronic system has the working point again the lot.
