Today, a computer audio system can help users store tens of thousands of music tracks, with many advantages compared to conventional CDs. This system allows players to easily manage and play high-quality digital music using software and apps for playing and sharing music online, and wireless control with smart devices such as smartphones, tablets, personal music players … all with relatively good quality.
DAC TMP products excel at converting high quality audio formats. Each version is designed with the advance in technology, using latest modules or decoder chips, while meeting customers’ different needs and investment possibilities.
“Digital as Analog” is ThivanLabs’ core design concept for DAC products – an advantage that helps these products stand out in the market of high quality digital audio.
The company’s 10-year experience of producing electronic light devices and OPT – Output Transformer technology has contributed to the success of DAC Tube Music Processor Anniversary, which produces sounds of subtlety, authenticity, inspiration, warmth, analog quality, thickness and details.
The new generation of TMP Anniversary is easily connected to all nowadays’ popular sources such as CD / HD / Blu-ray Player, Music server, Smart TV, TV / HD Box, portable hard drives, Laptop / PC, device smart mobile devices such as IPads, IPhones, smartphones … via USB, Optical (Fiber), Coaxial (RCA / BNC), AES ports. The new TMP DAC lights are an optimal solution to elevate an existing audio system to a new level.
Factors contributed to the special sound quality of Thivan TMP 9038:
Most of the DAC 9038s available on the market use buffers. The output for DAC9038 chip is a semiconductor with a very deep negative feedback, which brings about rather clean sounds, yet filters out harmonies from 9038 chip, resulting in the loss of instrument and vocal naturalistic sounds. Therefore, many users unfavorably respond to DACs of this new chip saying that the sound is too “Digital”, emotionless and dry!!
With the combination of an electronic light, the DAC Tube Music Processor – 9038 has been engineered to deliver sound smoothness and authenticity, preserving the true integrity of sound!
In Thivan’s TMP 9038, for source processing, the audio output is considerately invested with 12AU7 and EL84 tubes using the Single Ended circuit. The entire circuit is designed to run Class A without negative feedback to maximize sound details and music of ES9038 chip, every note of the song or voice vibration of the vocalist is preserved and transmitted as faithfully as possible.
