IDEON Absolute DAC
The IDEON Absolute DAC is a high-end digital-to-analog converter (DAC). It incorporates several advanced features and technologies to deliver exceptional audio performance with immersive purity and detail.
The Absolute DAC incorporates a next-generation analog stage, very similar to a phonostage, that utilizes symmetrical ultra-low-noise power supplies. This design choice further reduces noise and distortion, resulting in enhanced audio reproduction. It also utilizes an extremely linear power supply configuration with multiple local power supplies and exceptionally large main power supplies. This configuration ensures stable and clean power delivery to the audio circuitry, minimizing electrical noise.
This DAC incorporates three ultra-low jitter clocks. These clocks play a critical role in reducing timing errors and ensuring accurate and precise signal processing. In addition, it includes two main bespoke transformers with extreme cores. These transformers are custom hand-made for audio applications and provide efficient power delivery with high current capacity.
The IDEON Absolute DAC offers both balanced and single-ended outputs, providing flexibility in connecting to different audio systems and amplifiers. Balanced operation helps minimize noise and interference, resulting in cleaner audio signals. It also features IDEON’s proprietary triple distillation technology for both USB and S/PDIF inputs. This technology minimizes digital noise and distortion, enhancing the overall audio quality and accuracy.
This high-end DAC utilizes the ESS ES9038PRO 32-bit 8-channel Hyperstream DAC chip. This chip offers the industry’s highest dynamic range (DNR) of up to 140dB, ensuring excellent signal-to-noise ratio and fidelity. In addition, it utilizes new, in-house developed dedicated software specifically designed for the ES9038PRO DAC chip. This software optimization ensures the DAC performs at its best and takes advantage of the chip’s capabilities.
In summary, the IDEON Absolute DAC combines advanced technologies such as next-generation analog stage, extremely linear power supply, low jitter clocks, bespoke transformers, balanced operation, proprietary input technology, zero-noise active bridges, selected components, high-performance DAC chip, and a dedicated software for the DAC chip to deliver exceptional audio performance and an immersive listening experience.
