about audio note dac 5

 

The DAC 5 is available in two models;

Audio Note DAC 5 Special

Audio Note DAC 5 Signature

The DAC 5 Special features an upgraded version of the M6 pre-amplifier line stage, using a 5814a (ECC82/12AU7a) and a 6463, both of which are dual triode valves.

The DAC 5 Signature features an upgraded version of the M6 preamplifier line stage, using a 5814a (ECC82 / 12AU7a / 6189) and a Telefunken 6463, both of which are dual triodes valves.

 

 

99.99% pure silver.

Internal component quality of this calibre has never before been seen, in either consumer or professional equipment. There is an abundance of Black Gate and Cerafine Audio capacitors, and Audio Note (UK) Tantalum film resistors throughout the circuit. Analogue stage filter inductors and internal wiring are all produced with Audio Note (UK) 99.99% pure silver wire.

These are coupled to an output transformer, wound with Audio Note (UK) silver wire on a 55% Nickel Audio Note (UK) Supa-Perma C cores.

The result of the level of design and engineering thats has gone into these Level 5 products is astonishing and has to be heard to be believed!

review.

The driving principle behind the DAC 5 Special’s waveform-translation abilities comes in no small part from Audio Note UK’s founder – Peter Qvortrup – and his single-minded pursuit of realism in high-fidelity playback. You could say emotionally-engaging realism at all costs, but I’ve found with AN UK it’s never at the expense of the music!

Understanding how the company has focused so holistically on not only the digital signal path, but more explicitly it’s machinations in the analog realm, helps one to understand why it is that they expend resources, time, and research & development into the DAC 5’s overall architecture. They’re not letting the trees stop them from seeing the forest, so to speak. The pursuit of sonic perfection is a big picture endeavour.- Words by Rafe Arnott from Audio Stream.
