NAD

The NAD C 658 is a new kind of stereo component, one that at once changes preconceptions and opens new possibilities for audio reproduction. As we move deeper into the 21st Century the way music is distributed and enjoyed continues to evolve away from physical media to streaming. It also has moved away from analog to digital. The C 658 has incorporated these fundamental truths to create an entirely new type of component that combines a Network Streamer, a state-of-the art DAC, and many aspects of the traditional Preamplifier into a single highly cost-effective package. And thanks to NAD’s exclusive Modular Design Construction, it will keep pace with the latest technology, not yet introduced, but inevitably coming in the future.

DIGITAL TO ANALOG CONVERTERS (DACS)

Bryston

bryston

The Bryston BDA-3 is a world class DAC that is packed with the perfect mix of features making it an essential part of your digital audio chain. The BDA-3 delivers superb sonic performance through re-sampling and re-clocking of the digital input signal. With the exception of user-selectable up-sampling, the BDA-3 doesn’t convert anything to another format or re-sample at a non-native rate. BDA-3 has PCM playback capable of 384kHz/32 bit resolution and is fully DSD enabled. The BDA-3 can decode up to DSD-256, through asynchronous USB inputs, and accepts SACD input via HDMI.

HD30 Top

The HD30 is a digital-to-analog converter. The master clock was designed from the ground up and we went to great lengths to design an ultra- low noise power supplies and shielding from outside interference. The musicality of the HD30 is at a level never before heard. You can experience instruments and virtually feel the room they play in.


After years of patient research and development, we are proud to launch our MX-DAC with DSD. With its technical innovation, superb technical performance and excellent build quality, the new MX DAC offers truly outstanding value for money. The MX-DAC is a tremendous performer. It has ultra- low distortion, very wide bandwidth and low noise. The technical performance of the MX-DAC is on a par with any other DAC at any price. All inputs whether from coax, optical or USB, are processed in the DSD domain. This desirable feature gives a warmth and humanity to the sound that simple digital conversion doesn’t achieve.


The DAC-V1 is perfectly optimized for modern digital listening. It features an asynchronous USB input – ideal for getting stunning sound quality from your computer. It has single-ended class-A headphone amplifier and the output stages of this amplifier are kept as pure as possible, ensuring outstanding sound quality for headphone listening. The DAC-V1 is DSD compatible and able to play 64 (2.8MHz sample rate) and 128 files (5.6MHz sample rate); the upgrade required significant optimization of the core DSP code which has also improved sound quality.


CD players

The M6scd is a top- notch CD player and digital hub in one beautifully engineered enclosure. The M6scd is a superb performer. It uses a 32-bit DAC with 192 kHz up-sampling and delivers outstanding technical and musical performance. It also has a range of digital inputs: 2 x coax, 2 x optical and asynchronous USB. This makes it particularly useful for set top boxes and/or TV sound improvement.

sa-ki ruby

The SA-KI Ruby Signature Super Audio CD Player with DAC player has been developed and tuned by a highly experienced engineering team led by Ken Ishiwata. By up-converting all file formats to DSD, using advanced filtering and processing and direct 1-bit conversion to feed the analog outputs, the SA-KI Ruby delivers sound with remarkable clarity, effortless dynamics and exceptional presence—plus, features a laser-engraved Ken Ishiwata signature to commemorate his legacy.


Lyngdorf

The CD-2 is designed for audio only. The Lyngdorf Audio philosophy is to get the audio signal as clean as possible and to do the optimization based on the Lyngdorf Audio precision clock system. Resampling the output of the CD drive to a low-noise clock suppresses the level of jitter artifacts in the output signal to an absolute minimum. Our state-of-the-art sample rate converters, using special low-noise design techniques, enable the CD-2 to upsample the digital output of the audio drive to a selectable output rate. A major advantage of this is that you can adjust the output for the optimum operating point of a D/A converter. The digital output can deliver 24-bit resolution at a sample rate up to 192 kHz. The analog output section is upsampled in a parallel process to 96 kHz.
