DAC 8 DSD High End DAC/Preamplifier

Fundamentally the new T+A DAC 8 DSD is capable of doing everything necessary to convert every form of digital source into analogue signals at the very highest quality, including DSD right up to the highest possible resolution. T+A have again further improved the DAC 8 DSD`s outstanding preamplifier, and incorporated a volume control of fully analogue construction based on high end Melf resistors. The “State of the Art” output stage is a fully symmetrical design and discrete construction. 

Its impedance is very low, and it is equipped with symmetrical (XLR) and asymmetrical (RCA) outputs. These features make the T+A DAC 8 DSD more than just a high quality DAC but also a high quality preamplifier of supreme quality. 

T+A take all aspects of design to the extreme on the DAC 8 DSD as they employ two separate, sophisticated mains power supplies for the analogue and digital sections. 

A volume control is another unusual feature in a DAC, but it makes good sense if the user wishes to install active loudspeakers, or employ the DAC 8 DSD as a pre-amplifier in conjunction with external power amplifiers such as the DAC 8 DSD. The volume control is of highly refined design, and exploits analogue control elements down to low volumes, as they avoid any loss of dynamic quality even at low listening levels. Two Gold contact relays are provided to bypass the volume control, i.e. it can be removed entirely from the signal path when not required.
