Violelectric DHA V590

Pre, DAC, Headfi – It's the holy trinity according to Violelectric's DHA V590 [€3'190]. AES/EBU, Toslink, coax and USB are resampled to 32 bits then processed by dual mono AKM 4490 DACs. Sample rates up to 384kHz and DSD512 are accepted. 2 x RCA and 1 x XLR cover the analog inputs. Alps pots handle volume and balance. For headphones there are two 6.3mm and one XLR4 output. For preamplitude there's one each RCA and XLR which can be operated simultaneously to headfi. €500 extra buy a relay resistor ladder volume across 256 steps. A remote control is standard either way.
