Recommended Ref DB1 to be partnered with Ref DS1.


1. Powered by a lithium battery. Automatic charging and perfect protection.  Zero mains noise.


2. Dual Mono design throughout maximises channel separation. Dual AK4497 DACs featuring 140dB dynamic range.The default settings for DSD and PCM are "DSD direct" and "Low dispersion short delay". The "DSD dircet" mode can let the pure orignal DSD signal direct to outputs and the "Low dispersion short delay" of PCM digital filter can let DAC chip Close to R2R Operating mode. The DAC chip board can easy to remove and fix to do update in the future.
3. It is particularly worth mentioning that the output stage uses a Specially customized Swedish Lundahl output transformer, passive LPF processing for amazing results.
