•Five independent transformers feeding five fully discrete linear voltage regulators for the cleanest power to each modular section of the unit. •Custom 10 mm acrylic case selected for superior acoustic properties. •NEW: additional internal EMI/RFI materials to lower electromagnetic interference noise floor. •NEW: redesigned mains power conditioning to reduce ingress and egress of mains-borne noise. •Sixteen Philips TDA1543/N2 resistor-ladder chips. •Filterless NOS design for unparalleled time-domain replay accuracy. •NEW: custom four-layer PCB to support DAC chips. •Passive output stage with Duelund Coherent Audio capacitors and selected US-made audio resistors all made to CAD specifications. •NEW: internal signal wiring upgraded to custom UP-OCC copper. •The 1543 MKII DAC is made in a modular fashion to make future upgrades possible ensuring your investment will last a lifetime.
- The very best computer audio server/ripper
- Combine with CAD 1543 DAC
- On demonstration at MCRU
The Ground Control contains a mixture of materials that converts high frequency energy into heat. Our research has found that to achieve the best sound quality the GC1, GC3 & GC-R needed to be effective over a large frequency range. This was not easy to accomplish! The CAD Ground Controls will substantially reduce noise from very high KHz range up to over 10 GHz.
