Denafrips Terminator II R2R DAC


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Sophisticated Design

The DAC core conversion module R-2R is constructed with 0.005% high precision, 10ppm low thermal effect precision resistors. Each channel uses more than 500pcs of these precision resistors, or 1000pcs for two channels, it’s 4 times more than the other typical R-2R DAC. These achieve a truly astonishing low distortion, full balanced design. Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillators OCXO clocks are used with FIFO buffer and reclocking – to eliminate the word-clock jitter from the sources.

Denafrips Terminator II Review and Comparison

I’m not joking when I say that I could completely picture Jordan striking the steel drum, ranging between medium speed to somewhat fast strikes with mallets in both hands. I’d never heard this level of detail previously. It gave me a whole new take on the track because it was just more real.
