TotalDAC 2023

More total DACs – French maker TotalDAC announce three new machines dubbed the d1-unity [€12.5K], d1-triunity [€24K] and d1-sublime [€50K]. Still based on naked Vishay discrete R2R ladders from 100 to 600 resistors, the new output stage has been beefed up to now deliver 3.5/7V RCA/XLR with lower impedance for superior direct drive of amplifiers; plus lower jitter and superior clock distribution. A network streamer module remains optional and all prior d1-series machines can be upgraded to 'unity' status. Sample-rate support remains limited to 24/192. DSD is supported via a DoP option.
