NuForce has just recently released their new DAC-9 which offers a plethora of inputs – six in all (USB, XLR, BNC, RCA, Toslink/3.5mm optical). Is it me or do you also find the design to be Cylon-esk?
The DAC-9 uses a unique output filter after two summed current-output DACs plus minimalist analog output stage without NFB preserve phase coherence, musical harmonics and transient fidelity. Still with me? If not, just keep reading. A toroidal transformer that has multiple stages of voltage regulation should provide for more stable power. Outputs are XLR, RCA and 3.5/6.3mm headphone. The USB input is 24/96 compatible.
Price comes in at: $1695 U.S.
