After cutting their teeth making drivers and audio equipment for some of the biggest names in the audio world, CEntrance applied their principles and proprietary technology to their own product line. Giving you a fully functioning sound hub for speakers and headphones alike, the CEntrance DACmini PX features a headphone amp, speaker amp, and a DAC in one streamlined package.
Note: Only 10 units are available for this drop.
Every aspect of the DACmini was engineered to minimize distortion and facilitate the clearest, cleanest signal path possible. To limit the impact of electrical wiring eccentricities, the DAC chip is suspended in mid air and divided in two- the right side for analog signals, and the left for digital. Offering full galvanic isolation, the signals never cross, thus retaining their pristine sound. Additionally, the internal jitter management algorithm- the JitterGuard- regularizes the digital signal for a natural response, crisp definition, extra resolution, and a wide soundstage.
To ensure faster reaction time and uninterrupted output, the transformer-isolated power supply generates five independent voltages for the internal circuitry. Continuing quality into the overall construction, the casing is made of durable aluminum with a two-part chassis that prevents EMC leakage and blocks RF interference. Just in case your DACmini falls off the desk, an internal drop-protection pot guard rail protects the potentiometer from any potential damage.
At the back of the unit, you have your choice of an SPDIF, USB, or analog input, as well as a headphone or line-level output. With the power switch and source selector on the front, you can navigate between inputs with ease. If you are plugged via USB into your computer, the DACmini constantly streams audio- even when the USB input is not selected- for uninterrupted performance. Capable of driving the highest impedance headphones, boosting the best speakers, and generally catering to any sound set-up you can come up with, the CEntrance DACmini PX is an impeccably designed and highly versatile amplifier and DAC combo that fits easily on any desk.
