At Audio Note (UK), they’ve always been driven by a singular purpose: to recreate the original musical experience in its most unadulterated form. The DAC2.1x stands as a testament to this vision.
Audio Note (UK)’s relentless journey towards audio perfection has often led us away from the beaten path. Rather than adhere to conventional methods, they embrace the road less traveled. In the DAC2.1x, they have consciously sidestepped the typical industry inclinations of oversampling, jitter reduction, noise shaping, and re-clocking. Instead, Audio Note (UK) champions an analogue domain approach. This significant choice ensures a wide-band phase-frequency response and dynamic coherence, resulting in sound reproduction that maintains the integrity and purity of the original audio signal. In essence a surprisingly musical sound reproduction.
The analogue approach is a bold stance, but its effectiveness is underscored by the components that come to life within the DAC2.1x. They took it upon themselves to custom design and manufacture their filter-interface coils/transformers in house, a move that allows them to guarantee unparalleled quality. Each element, each wire, and each coil reflects their unyielding commitment to audio authenticity.
Now, to delve deeper into the individual marvels of the Audio Note (UK) DAC range: The Signature model of the DAC2.1x isn’t merely an upgraded version—it’s a celebration of what’s possible when commitment meets craftsmanship. They’ve integrated their globally renowned Tantalum resistors and Copper coil capacitors into its design. Each of these components play a pivotal role in elevating the DAC’s overall sonic performance.
The DAC2.1x/II Balanced model, on the other hand, is where tradition meets innovation. It seamlessly integrates an enhanced rendition of their classic Audio Note (UK) Line preamplifier output stage, beautifully complemented by a pair of ECC82/5814a double triode valves. Additionally, they’ve incorporated their own custom output transformers, lauded across the audio community for their expansive frequency response and dynamic capabilities.
Whether you’re considering the Standard, the Signature, or the Balanced version of the DAC2.1x, know this—each model is a reflection of their unyielding commitment to unparalleled quality. Every component, every circuit, and every design choice is the result of countless hours of research, testing, and refinement, all geared towards sculpting the perfect musical experience.
