New 2-3 Days Furutech ADL GT40α Phono/Headphone Amp and DAC

The GT40α is finally here, built for enthusiasts with growing music collections on their computer hard drives. It' s a high performance 24bit/192kHz USB DAC that' s amazingly affordable.

Looking to convert your LPs or other analogue sources to digital? The GT40α will take you to the podium with every album you archive.

The seriously-shielded audiophile-grade GT40α features a low-latency USB 2.0 audio driver that plays and records at 24bits/192kHz. A likely first for this category, the GT40α includes a built-in low-noise MM / MC phono preamp! Record your favourite vinyl to hard disk via the USB output.

The ADL GT40α features L/R analogue outputs, and switchable line or phono inputs with a vivid, captivating sound that is simply unheard of in this category.

The ADL GT40α (wired with Furutech' s GT2 USB cable of course!) brings Furutech' s signature sound -- smooth, detailed clarity -- to desktop systems, especially with high resolution 24bit/192kHz files, but even 16bit/44.1kHz files sound impeccable and very musical.

Features:

  • High performance 24bit/192kHz USB DAC and 24bit/192kHz ADC IC chip
  • Enjoy audio in high resolution at 24bit/192kHz surpassing conventional 16bit/44.1kHz standards
  •  Incorporates the most trusted driver in professional audio for 24bit/192kHz recording and playback
  • External power supply: while a USB-powered device might be convenient, it won' t develop the power required for high resolution playback, so we designed the GT40α with an external power supply to solve the problem.
  •  Headphone Amplifier: It contains a high performance headphone amplifier with ample drive for good headphones
  • Analogue-to-Digital Converter: The GT40α sports a high-performance ADC IC chip for high resolution recordings via analogue inputs including phono, AM/FM radio, or other analogue signals.
  •  Convenient Clip signal Toggle switch for Recording Attenuation: Adjust the recording attenuation to avoid any distortion during recording: 0dB, 6 dB, or 12dB (RecAtt/db signal light comes on when input level exceeds circuit Gain) .
  • Phono Preamplifier: A first for this class, the GT40α features a phono equalizer for recording your precious LPs. Switch between Moving Magnet (MM) and Moving Coil (MC) or Line input
  • Highest Quality Parts: The GT40α features a high quality amplifier and condenser supporting its high performance analogue circuit
  • High End Audio Grade Connections: The GT40α is equipped with gold-plated Teflon-insulated RCA jacks with an extremely high quality aluminium chassis and machined volume knob.
