2-3 Days NuPrime DAC-10 Digital to Analogue Converter/Pre-amplifier

The NuPrime DAC-10 combines leading-edge technology that offers PCM 384K & DSD256 decoding with a high-power balanced headphone amplifier. To excel beyond high performance DACs cluttering the marketplace, NuPrime recognizes that merely supporting standard sampling rates and hi-res music formats using state-of-the-art chips or proprietary digital signal processing is not sufficient. To satisfy the most discerning audiophiles, the NuPrime DAC-10 must do three things exceptionally well:

1) drive any headphones with ease;

2) deliver the utmost detail during a symphony's quietest passages or a soundtrack's heart-pounding explosion;

3) all of this in the most natural sound. Simply put, the DAC-10 is a truly musical device.

A Reference LE Class Preamp

To meet the requirement of customers who want to eliminate extra components in their system, a high-end preamp capable of driving the power amplifier directly is an essential part of the design. The DAC-10 includes features borrowed from the Reference class P-20 preamp:

  • Advanced, thin-film switched-resistor ladder network for controlling volume, i.e., a single resistor in the signal path at any volume setting.
  • Individually adjustable volume on each input for precise source level matching.
  • Volume adjustment in 99 precise, 0.5dB increments.

The Heart

As the heart of an audio system, the DAC-10 supports an extensive number of inputs and formats. Utilizing the world's best performing 32-bit audio DAC is only a first step for designing the ultimate DAC. When state-of-the-art solutions are readily available to all vendors, the experience and proprietary know-how in designing many Editor's Choice and Product of The Year award-winning products elevate the NuPrime DAC-10 above the competition.

Several notable features:

  • Five digital and two stereo inputs for system flexibility.
  • SABRE32 Reference ES9018K2M from ESS Technology is one of the world's best-performing 32-bit audio DAC solution for high-end consumer applications and professional studio equipment. With ESS's 32-bit Hyperstreamâ„¢ DAC architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator, the SABRE32 Reference DAC delivers an unprecedented dynamic range of up to 127dB and THD+N (Total Harmonic Distortion plus Noise) of -120dB, all of which put the DAC-10H at the industry's cutting edge.
  • Symmetrical signal processing with exact signal transmission over the entire frequency spectrum and extremely low harmonic distortion, ensuring an unadulterated musical presentation.
  • Asynchronous transfer mode.
  • Ultra-low-noise JFETs in the input stage for the lowest possible noise level.
  • Supports DSD native playback by ASIO2.1 (up to 11.2MHz) and DoP (up to 5.6MHz) method.
  • Sample Rate Display - 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192, 352.8, 384 kHz and DSD64 to DSD256.
  • Unique dual gain settings for RCA with 2V or 4V outputs, XLR with 4V or 8V outputs; and each of the balanced and unbalanced headphone outputs with four different high power output settings.
  • Exclusive driver software for Windows. Standard driver software for Mac.

Other Features

  • Linear power supply with multi-rail toroidal transformer.
  • Independent left/right channel power supplies.
  • 12V trigger output
  • Full microprocessor control with memory retention
  • Included remote control for full convenience.
  • Available in stylish black or silver anodized aluminum finish
