Top-grade Digital / Analog Converter with Current Injection current-to-voltage (I/V) conversion. The UltraDac is a higher grade version of the original, PureDAC by B.M.C. Audio of Germany.
It delivers a digital to analog converter (DAC) of the highest quality, with a balanced preamplifier, a reference-level balanced headphone amplifier, and B.M.C.'s exclusive Digital Intelligent Gain Management (DIGM).
DIGM is a volume and amplification control system that calibrates gain without dividing or downgrading the input signal.
The Ultradac's balanced preamp is integrated with the DAC's current-to-voltage converter, which converts and filters the DAC's current, eliminating the need for an extra stage. The Preamp and headphone amp both employ B.M.C.'s exclusive Load Effect Free (LEF) technology that handles current demand separately from the voltage demand, and naturally avoids distortions increasing the preamp and amp's quality of its audio reproduction.
It benefits from the same features that made the success of PureDAC but it employs further musical resolution & detail and hard to drive headphones suchas the HiFiMan HE-6 are a piece of cake.
Separate volume controls for the preamp and the headphone amp come standard. A high-resolution asynchronous USB interface, digital AES/EBU, Toslink and coaxial inputs, balanced analog outputs, RCA output jacks, and a special B.M.C. link for connecting directly to a B.M.C. amplifier are also standard.
The balanced output is ideally compatible with amplifiers featuring BMC's exclusive Current Injection (CI) technology, which enhances signal purity and the musical presence of the PureDAC's audio reproduction.
The UltraDAC improvements over the PureDAC:
Top level local clock oscillator with super low phase noise and jitter.
70% larger power supply for perfect stability under all conditions.
New hybrid LEF headphone amplifier with 15A bipolar voltage output devices and MOSFET current sources.
Vastly improved unbalanced standard headphone output with separate stage.
New hybrid LEF line stage with bipolar voltage output devices and MOSFET current sources.
SPDIF inputs with full 192kHz support.
Quiet cabinet with damping.
Operation with fixed line output available.
