DAC 1.1x (Signature)
Available in both standard and signature versions, the Audio Note 1.1 DAC employs Audio Note 1 x oversampling and Direct From Disc technologies to provide an extremely musical converter.
The unit uses a Crystal CS8412CP input receiver together with an Analog Devices dual 18-bit AD1865 converter chip. The analogue stage features valve output with an ECC88/6DJ8 tube used as in a cathode follower circuit.
The signature version employs upgraded components, with Audio Note tantalum resistors and Audio Note Kaisei capacitors in crucial areas, Audio Note copper foil signal capacitors and a copper-wound digital input transformer. The output circuit is configured as an anode follower with zero feedback using a 6DJ8 valve.
This highly-regarded DAC is available with a face plate in either brushed aluminium or polished black acrylic to match other products in the Audio Note UK range.
