(Digital to Analog Converter)
WHAT IS A DAC?
DACs, the acronym for Digital to Analog Converters, are crucial to experiencing great sound. And for good reason. An exciting universe of customized playlists, music services, wireless streaming, and high-resolution downloads—all at the ready via hand-held smartphones and tablets—reside at the center of the computer-audio explosion. DACs make it all possible, and give many listeners something they never expected: Digital that sounds breathtakingly realistic and brings them closer to the musical event. As both the quality and diversity of audio files continues to expand—and DSD, DXD, and other high-resolution formats advance—they’re also essential to any system.
DACs come in all shapes, sizes, and prices. While you probably already have a few DACs built into your existing hardware, they give you only several hundredths of the potential sonic performance. We realize that the combinations of features, bit rates, formats, connections, chipsets, and conversion process can be extremely intimidating. No problem. Drawing from our unmatched DAC selection, we’ll help you find the DAC that suits your needs and walk you through the setup. And remember: We’re just a phone call away to answer any questions and aid whenever necessary.
