Orchid DAC is a non over-sampling, no digital filter, structured DAC.  This tends to produce most realistic and natural sound.

Orchid DAC is capable of up to 24bits/192kHz digital signal inputs yet remains driving legendary TDA1541A R-2R digital to analog output.

The USB input section is in asynchronous operation.

Total four independent  digital inputs; BNC, USB, RCA and Toslink.

The 4 digital inputs are independent to each other, only one among them will be active and is controlled by the tact switches located in front panel.


Tube buffered output, tube in stalled is 5670 tube.

Tubes can be used: 5670, 2C51, 396A, 6385, 6CC42, 6854, 6N3,

6854, CV2575, CV4013, CV5894, CV8247, CV2381

115/230V power supply selectable from internal PCB jump pins setting 

Available in black cabinet only
