DAC4.1x Professional Edition
New stunning DAC4.1x Professional Edition is our hand crafted finished product with all the highest level signature parts throughout including non-magnetic tantalums , Kasaiis and AudioNote copper films! We keep this unit ns stock for fast shipment!
For close to the ultimate in affordable DAC extravagance! The new DAC4.1x Professional Edition ( finished product) of the all signature DAC4.1x. We took our very popular DAC4.1 and added all the possible AudioNote signature parts along with a gorgeous Silver faceplate- We try to keep this unit in stock and we usually have a few in hand for next day shipping – the kit takes about 3 days to build by hand by our expert craftsman! Lets start with the over view of the entire kit
All the finest AudioNote components in the 4.1x professional edition – Check out our DIY version in the shop also! AudioNote Non magnetic tantalum resistors along with Kasaii electrolytics ( non polar) , AUdioNote copper film caps – Triple C core transformers , Charcroft Caps on the digital board – truly the kitchen sink of signature components!
Hi ANK, the DAC arrived today… Absolutely Stunning ! I am a qualified Electronics Technician [3ys full-time at college] and the build quality is so good it took my breath away –– it’s a work of Art ! -Ted Martin
A stunning Aluminum Faceplate for this finished product DAC with SPDIF and USB – The feature set is HUGE – Let start with the power supply – we use the M2 6×5, ecl82 tube rectified and tube regulated Power supply but we put in the finest components – the AudioNote 1W tantalums throughout along with the 2 Audionote copper film caps .22 and .47 for the ultimate power supply!
Below you can see the Signature DAC digital board with AudioNote tantalum resistors – this board is professionally built and tested and designed with the AudioNote r2r digital to analog strategy
IV transformers are a proprietary AudioNote design where the very delicate analog current signal that comes out of the AD1865 chip is run through a high quality audionote resistor to create a voltage representing the Audio signal – this signal is then transferred through a 1:1 ( I/V ) transformer which allows this ultra delicate signal to land on the line stage fully intact – ready for amplifiation! The IV transformers are housed in a special MU Metal can!
Once past the IV transformers the audio signal is amplified in the output tube stage which comprises of a 12au7 input tube and an ECC99 output stage ( DAC5.1 output board) the board uses the expensive audionote Non magnetic tantalum resistors along with the AudioNote copper film caps!
The final part of the output stage is our custom triple C core output transformers for manimum audio performance! – specially wound on a computer controlled machine for exacting specifications and tensions – the results are awe inspiring for music lovers!
