Digital to Analogue Converter

A DAC allows you to maximise the potential of your digital audio. Whether they work with a CD player, digital streamer, laptop or other digital device, DACs allow the digital signal to be converted into an analogue signal that a pre-amplifier can understand.



DACs are designed to optimise performance from any two channel PCM digital audio source such as a CD player, PC or streaming device.

With the PC/laptop and Mac now widely accepted as credible mediums for storing and streaming music, the use of high quality lossless files such as WAV, FLAC and ALAC offer performance through a DAC equal to and in some cases better than red book CD.

The DAC‐V1 turns a computer into more than just a convenient audio source; it becomes a genuine, high‐end, high‐resolution music hub.

While the DAC‐V1 is perfectly suited to being positioned on a desk, or work station near a computer, it is also highly versatile. It can integrate seamlessly into a traditional Hi‐Fi system or be used with any two‐channel digital audio source such as a games console, satellite box or any other device with a digital output via one of its five S/PDIF digital inputs. Furthermore, the DAC‐V1 and NAP 100 can also be combined with the Naim UnitiServe hard disk music server to create a compact high‐end music system.
