Thiyaga v2 SE – Digital to Analogue Converter
Thiyaga v2 SE DAC is a world class digital to analogue converter based on the incredible ESS Eabre ES9028PRO 32 bit, 8 channel pro series DAC. The chip leverages the ESS patented HyperStreamDAC technology for outstanding performance with 129dB dynamic range (DNR) and it is the best DAC chip available in the world today.
The Thiyaga V2 SE is a state-of-the-art digital-to-analog converter that packs the very latest in the technology by leveraging the full potential of the world’s best DAC chip – ESS Sabre ES9028Pro.
- It uses 8 channels in parallel for maximum dynamic range.
- 32-bit digital volume control by the chip is a significantly better solution than using the external volume control in amplifier
- Optimal programming of various parameters critical to the conversion process; few parameters can be configured through the user interface.
We combine the DAC with a well-designed tube output stage for an incredible sonic quality that presents the most nuanced details of any recording in the most elegant and sophisticated manner possible. Thiyaga v2 will have you rediscover all your music collection – no matter the quality of the recording or the source format.
The SE version of the Thiyaga v2 DAC provides the following upgrades.
- ES9028PRO replaces the ES9018
- Few passive components including resistors and critical capacitors in the analogue sections are upgraded
- More elaborate user interface with a remote control for volume and source selection
- Additional balanced output
Our previous Thiyaga DAC was our best-seller since its launch in 2013. It had a very fluid and natural sound combined with great dynamics. Our mission to further improve on the proven credential by using the ES9018 & ES9028Pro – but it required extensive research effort that spanned over 18 months and involved talented engineers from multiple disciplines.
We are thrilled with the result, and it is easily one of the best DAC in the world. Each product is handcrafted with attention to the quality of each component used in the product assembly. And finally, the product is extensively measured to ensure compliance with published specifications.
