NOS – Jay's Audio's first standalone DAC [$3'598 Singaporean] combines an XU208 XMOS USB transceiver with an AK4118 digital receiver, dual AK4497EQ DACs and large-scale FPGA to support PCM up to 384kHz and DSD up to 512. There are four low-jitter crystal oscillators from Crystek, twin EU-sourced power toroids, Schottky diodes, Walt Jung super regulators, Audio Note UK and Amtrans capacitors and Hoclo resistors. For analog, there are 2/4Vrms RCA/XLR outputs, for digital BNC, AES/EBU, RCA, USB, Toslink and I²S over HDMI inputs, the latter compatible with Denafrips and PS Audio. There's also selectable non-oversampling and oversampling.
