You want one device to handle all of your digital audio needs, one compact product that optimizes the signal from your DVD player and computer without batting an eye. Bringing you one premium solution to all of your music and movie files, the Audioengine D1 DAC/Amp gives you the power of 24bit conversion and the boost of an integrated headphone amplifier.
After plugging in through the USB or optical input, the D1 bypasses your computer or television’s sound card in favor of a superior processing system. Known for its low noise and high fidelity, the integrated AK4396 DAC chip can handle up to 192 kHz or 24bit output. When coupled with double redundancy power conversion, a high quality optical receiver (CS8416), and a well-recognized USB controller (the TI1020B), you experience more vivid details and a wider soundstage than ever before.
To make sure your D1 maintains its sterling sound through powered speakers and headphones alike, the unit comes with an integrated TI OPA2134 low opamp, guaranteeing you high fidelity audio for cans with impedance as low as 20 Ohms. Boasting enough playback power to instantly convert you and the convenience to enable immediate set-up, the Audioengine D1 DAC/Amp makes your music match your wildest dreams.
Haven’t heard enough? Maybe these sound bytes will sway you.
