Denafrips Venus II R2R DAC


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Sophisticated Design

The Venus II is true balanced, dual mono R-2R network arrays DAC. Each channel is equipped with independent high-speed FPGA to control the decoding by means of 4 sets of 0.005% R-2R network. This design has very small linear error, high decoding speed, low digital noise, not only to ensure that the audio signal is low distortion, but also to ensure a very low background music noise; allow listener to enjoy the true music with dark background.

All digital input are FIFO buffered and reclocked by improved Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillators TCXO. The excellent rejection of word-clock jitter makes DENAFRIPS DAC less reliance to the source equipment clock quality. Venus can transform your consumer grade computer, CD Player to high-end sound quality.
