The HD-DAC1 is a powerful DAC and Headphone Amplifier, it can even drive audiophile high-impedance headphones of up to 600 ohm - with complete MODE ease. All thanks to its three-level gain control, a high current audiophile DAC (CS4398), and its Premium Quality fixed and variable RCA outputs. This new product category comes with a new design, but as always with the Marantz family resemblance – it looks new, refreshing, and different, but it is always Marantz.
It is so powerful, it not only drives headphones, you can also directly connect it to your Hi-Fi integrated amplifier or to a pair of active speakers or power amps. It can act as a "media hub" for external devices as its also highly connectable. Optical and coaxial digital inputs as well as a USB-B port enable you to stream music directly from your PC or MAC. The USB-B works in asynchronous mode to support not only 192 kHz / 24bits high-resolution audio but also the DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz for maximized performance and the most direct way to enjoy excellent quality, and Apple iDevices can also be connected via the USB port on the front.
To safeguard quality when connected to a computer, Marantz have built extended isolation around the USB-B input to eliminate the chance of high frequency noise generated by the computer entering the HD-DAC1. They even included a jitter remover and Dual Clock for extreme accuracy.
