Tachyon digital audio converter (DAC)

The Tachyon digital audio converter (DAC) is a concentrate of the highest musical technology that offers fifteen independent power supplies, a dual conversion circuit, and eight microprocessors in a single box and an architecture featuring extremely short signal tracks based on rare, eight-layer double copper thickness circuit boards. It is therefore only natural that they use the RAVENNA protocol for the Tachyon Ethernet AES67-compatible network-based digital input, as RAVENNA is the unsurpassed state-of-the-art, standards-based audio transport technology offering highest resolution and precision.


The DAC also features ultra high-end audio capacitors from Duelund and other exceptional brands, as well as a unique, easily interchangeable printed circuit board for periodic replacement of chemical capacitors. It supports analog inputs and other standard digital audio input such as Spdif, AES/EBU, USB for high end audio, and Bluetooth for functionality.
