This ultra high performance to cost ration, 32bit 384KHZ DSD DAC is developed based on our highly acclaimed Sabre DA8. It comes with simplified operation, compact yet detailed construction, and a full set of interfaces: USB, TOSLINK, SPDIF and AES for digital inputs, and XLR, RCA plus 6.35mm headphone out for its application flexibility.
Further to its first class measurement performance, our sound optimizing team, which is formed by senior hifiers and professional music industry experts, has spent enough time to fine tune the sound. The result is a perfect balance between dynamic, resolution, and fullness. It is optimized for all kinds of musics.
D200 utilized ESS9016 as its heart, accompanying OP275 as LPF, OPA1632*2 as buffer and preamp. Headphone output is high current class A design constructed with MJD243/253 transistor with a output short circuit protection. High quality power supply includes Canadian Plitron toroidal transformer and 10 ways independent regulations. All Components are decided by extensive listening test.
There is a unique digital shaping and buffer design to improve the digital signal quality. Furthermore, an ultra low phase noise oscillator combined with DPLL automatic frequency switch make a very reliable clock.
There is a jitter filter which is can be set on (for lower quality digital signals) or off (for high quality digital signals) to best fit your equipments.
The LCD display, together with LED indication light make the operation easy and intuitive. The LCD dims 80% after 5 seconds idle. User settings are auto saved. And you can choose from 4 filter modes and 2 jitter eliminator modes to mix match a sound character you like!
There is a 80 step volume control, which is a perfect simple set up for studio monitor users. You can turn the pure DAC mode on, which will bypass volume control and shut down headphone amplifier, for a ultimate DAC performance.
The USB solution is based on Xmos U, featured 3 low phase noise oscillators in asynchronous mode. It supports DSD and PCM 32bit 384KHz, and compatible with Mac OSX, Linux and Windows.
